Writer friend Brian Basham (@ninjadueces22) recently mentioned the soon-to-come service in his Goodreads group, Author Superfriends Teamup, and I’d never heard of it. Apparently it’s Amazon’s answer to Wattpad – in fact, it’s pretty much the same thing. Right now it’s in beta testing mode, and writers and readers […]
