I just updated a new chapter of Generation What is George up to?

Just noticed you've given my story a chance. So I'm dropping by to let you know that I truly appreciate it and hope you'll find my work worth-it. Feedback and comments are more than welcome. Once again, thank you so much for making my day better ❤️

New chapter of Generation Baby coming your way soon!❤and
          
          Also if anyone can read Mortality to Magic and note down some of the things that happened so that book three can catch up with the story line then I can move the storyline forward and get the story to catch up. Been itching to do it for ages but I need a second pair of eyes! ❤

Hi Collette, I came across your post on Instagram and checked out your profile. Girl you are incredible! I'm new to all this, relatively speaking and still remember the absolute thrill when one of my favourite authors, @linzvonc,  commented on something I'd written so I know what you mean about getting high off of the excitement. 
          Comments and likes may have calmed down in these crazy days we're living through but please don't stop writing! 
          You've brought your imagination to life over 20 times!! Do you realise how amazing that is, how amazing you are. That's a lot of dedication and you give hope to a newbie like me. 
          Leah ♥️

Guys if you know anyone and I mean anyone at all that would be interested in reading my books please send my profile or books to them. I try to update as much as I can but I just don't have any loyal readers anymore who will even read my new chapters or finished books. If things don't pick up soon in thinking about whether or not I should continue being on wattpad. There are certain people who's names I won't mention who I happen to be related to who think all this is just a waste of time.
          
          I'm starting to wonder if they are actually right.The amount of effort I do with my books to make it perfect and exciting I do so much work to it that it doesn't seem that fun anymore if there's nobody to read it .
          
          I may need to think about my future on wattpad. Because I'm dedicated not just as a reader but as a writer too. If I have to leave Wattpad I may need to shut down the Instagram accounts and no longer review for people even when I'm trying to help them.
          
          I have a buzz when writing my books. That buzz tends to wear off if there's nobody around. If more people start to read my books and share the quotes so I get more readers I may consider giving this a little longer.
          
          I for one don't think it's fair if I continue critiquing people's books if I can't get anyone to leave feedback to help me on my own books because apparently I suck as a writer and that's the only reason why I can think of why nobody is reading them anymore.
          
          Also the effort to get your books noticed is tiring. It's a lot of hard work and effort. I have 1.09K followers which makes me think Wattpad is lying to me in a way. If I had that many followers I would have lots of friends and support but the sad reality is I don't. I take up a lot of my own time reviewing and supporting other authors.. It's only fair I get the same help in return.
          
          What do you all think? Shall I stay or Shall I go?

@Norwood515 Thank you for your reply. I use grammarly but is ee what you mean. Ive been meaning to re write Royalty at war but i need some help doing so. I would never have spotted some of the errors you have as grammar is not my strong point. My first book was Mortality to Magic but Ive come along so well since then. A lot of book covers were created by other people and a few by me. Which ones are you talking about? This is the reason why I need more comments as grammar isnt my strong point like spelling aswell because I'm deaf. Like i told so many others before you i have so many books its their choice which ones they wanna read. I do not expect people to read all of them. The reason being is because i like writing so much and i have so many ideas and I have variety! It would be boring if there was just one book and it wasnt everyone's cup of tea. I get that people dont like that but its up to them whether they want to or not I'm not forcing them. Ive also tried book clubs and I review people's work on instagram aswell as sharing my own work. Feel free to message me if you have any other ideas.

Ok, here you go. Feel free to disregard anything you don’t agree with as these are purely my opinions:
            
            If you’re reviewing other’s work, make sure you ask for payment e.g. they have to read/comment on x number of your chapters and you will only review/promote theirs when they have done this.
            
            You have 46 books on your profile. This might be a little overwhelming for readers coming to your page. Are there a couple you feel particularly proud of that you could bring to the top and promote, while unpublishing the others for a while?
            
            Don’t take this the wrong way, but some of your covers are not very inspiring (to me). That is the first thing readers see. If you go on the forums there are lots of people offering their services to create covers. This doesn’t apply to all your covers by the way - I love the ‘How to fall in love with an idiot’ one and some of the others, but there are a few of your covers that could do with a creative touch.
            
            Blurbs are the second thing a reader sees, and I’ve had a quick read of some of yours and there are a few small grammatical errors. No one is expecting stories to be completely error-free, but a tight blurb is a good start to draw the reader in. Perhaps either use a free editing software e.g. Grammarly, or look for people on the forums offering help with blurbs.
            
            Finally, if you’re not already, being active on the forums in general is a good way to market yourself and your writing to other writers. There you can get involved in book clubs or read for read/critique for critique which will boost your own reads.
            
            Hope some of this is helpful, although appreciate all these things are hard to do if you’re not feeling motivated. Hope you decide to stay.

@Creativecolette it's the Angels and Demons war one (sorry can't remember the title exactly). I created a writers page on Facebook as well as joined a writers group for YA literature, though lately just posting through Twitter and Instagram. It's slow but I am also in school so works for me.
