  1. Since the comments section of the Wattpad story is closed for comments (why?), I’ll put my comment here.

    I don’t approve of the idea or practice of designating certain people official authors based upon their connection with a publishing behemoth. Have their books been vetted through editors who have used their own taste to pass them along? Yes. All the misspellings have also been corrected. However, if what is produced by publishers is the best of the best, then some of the criteria deciding what is “best” needs serious reconsideration.

    Wattpad is disruptive, but not just for its business model. It’s disruptive because it allows people to say, “I can do this too”. It’s disruptive because it allows indie authors to produce what they please and the consumer the decider if it’s worth anything or not.

    I understand that authors are in it to win it and to make a buck. That guy is giving cookies away for free. They’re not as good as the cookies I get from a bakery, but they’re free so that offsets that equation a bit.
