Never having heard of it, I investigated Wattpad. What it seems to be is yet another nest of fan-fiction and related nonsense. What I found most interesting, browsing the "hot" titles, was how many of them have blatantly nicked their covers from films and TV shows. Here are a few examples.
|Maya_2011's 'Dragon's Prize' pinches a promo phot of Aidan Mitchell from TV series Being Human|
|Tulipgardens' 'Hunting You, Hunting Me' pinches the movie poster for Norwegian horror film Thale|
|Steviekc's 'Aryan Nation' steals one of the famous images from the excellent Nazis-win-WW2 mockumentary It Happened Here|
Almost everything else on the 'hot' list has as cover images pictures taken from Deviantart--I assume stolen, but can't prove it. If the covers are this shameless--not even derivative, but outright thefts--just how original and interesting are the books themselves going to be?
I think the remote-controlled biro was a better idea.
And speaking of tiresome zombie fiction, I see that these two books, first published in the UK...
..have been released in the US. But heaven forfend that a US-published book should have anywhere foreign on it...
