Readers and voters on Wattpad.com have named SCHIFFLEBEIN’S FOLLY winner of the Paranormal category in Wattpad’s PROJECTWD Awards 2016.
The family comedy steps into supernatural territory with several nonhuman supporting characters, including one sarcastic talking teapot. Thus, the novel was included in the Paranormal fiction category on Wattpad.
PROJECTWD is the moniker of the Project Writer Development campaign, run by Wattpad members to recognize undiscovered, little known authors and works. To enter, books had to have gained less than 15,000 readers to date (SCHIFFLEBEIN has just under 4,000), and the author must have fewer than 1,000 “followers,” or Wattpad reading fans. (Iris Chacon, author of SCHIFFLEBEIN’S FOLLY, has fewer than 700.)
This is the first year for the PROJECTWD Awards, and hopefully its organizers and administrators will be back in 2017 for the second campaign.
