Get Published Episode 100 – Aaron Kite Talks Wattpad

Yes that’s right, episode 100 is finally here! It has been a wonderful journey that has lasted much longer than I ever expected. I have learned so much from doing the podcast and speaking to all my guests not to mention all of the friends and contacts I’ve made along the way. It has truly been life changing.

Some of the many highlights? Well, I got to have several fanboy moments with authors like Jack Whyte, Robert J Sawyer, JC Hutchins, Scott Sigler, Gail Carriger and David B Coe. I’ve met many up-and-coming superstars and I have made a lot of new friends.

I met my publisher through the podcast and have learned a number of things about the publishing industry. I also met all of my current collaboration partners via the podcast. It has helped to create a wealth of opportunities for me.

I have also had the opportunity to meet some fledgling authors and watch them grow in their writing. That has been a lot of fun, especially knowing that I’ve played some small part in their progress. Do you have any stories to tell? Have you learned anything from the podcast that you would like to share? I would love to hear from you. It’s those stories and bits of feedback that keep me podcasting.

Thank you all for sharing the past four years with me. It has been a fun time that I’m looking forward to continuing.

In today’s episode I speak to Aaron Kite about Wattpad. He has used the online community that Wattpad provides to great affect. We talk about what Wattpad is and how to get the most out of it.

I also have another great Unorthodox Writing Tips from JR Murdock. In this episode he talks about recursive writing.

That’s today’s episode. I hope you enjoy it.

  1. Awesome interview Mike! I’ve been using Wattpad ever since I heard about it on a John Mierau podcast episode. It is fun to get feedback, or see how many reads a story has had. Congrats on 100 episodes! To think I knew you when. I actually became friends with you because I found this podcast and started listening to it – which is very cool.
