Hey! I was wondering if you're ever going to finish "Arrowheart" on Wattpad. I really love it and I would have bought it but I can't during this period of a severe Pandemic.

RebeccaSky

@Dreamerswizz15 awww thank you. I have been discussing ways to get Arrowheart back up on Wattpad with my publisher, but nothing has been officially decided yet. You can always request it from a library in the meantime! Some libraries do ebooks, so you won't have to even leave home to borrow it! ❤❤❤ If anything changes on the Wattpad front, I'll definitely message you all and let you know!

Ahhhhh I can finally talk about EVERY BODY SHINES a Body/Fat positivity anthology wit Bloomsbury Teen I'm contributing to. I've been holding this secret since last year and it's been sooo hard. Especially when I learned that my story would be in a collection with some super talents, favorite authors and Amanda Lovelace my favorite poetess (if you haven't read her poetry collection THE PRINCESS SAVES HERSELF IN THIS ONE, please do!). This anthology already means so much to me. Getting to read stories of emboldened Fat teens embracing themselves and kicking all sorts of ass, well it would've changed my life as a teen. I am so thankful I get to be a part of this important book! I can't wait to tell you more. But in the meantime check out this amazing line up! ♡

Hey Babes! 
          
          Just checking in to share my solidarity with the Black community. It shouldn’t have to be said that Black Lives Matter! But they do! The violence against the Black community is appalling, heartbreaking, soul aching, no one should have to fight for justice or equality or their right to live, especially when they’re fighting those supposedly paid to protect them. I truly hope that America (and the world) sees change come from this, and that there won’t be any more senseless deaths! The world needs Black voices, the next generation needs Black voices, publishing needs Black voices.
          
          I’ve been listening and learning and trying to dissect my white privilege, and I know I have a lot of work still to do. I also know I can use my privilege in service of Black liberation, so I’d like to help amplify Black voices, starting with:
          
          1.@JordanLynde is curating a reading list of Black authors, so head to her profile and drop your story link. A lot of Wattpaders are planning to copy her lists too!
          
          2. If you're an aspiring Black author and are looking for a writing mentorship and would like one from me (published author, Wattpad Star, Pitchwars mentor! *find out more at www.rebeccasky.com) then I would like to offer that to one of you for free, anything from helping to elevate your platform on Wattpad or social media, to a full MS critique and edit letter, to querying or whatever your end goal is. Let me know your needs and I'll try to meet them. If there’s a big enough desire for mentorships, I’ll hit up some of my fellow Wattpad Stars to see if they can help too! 
          
          *If you're interested in a mentorship, the info for how to submit for that is in the comments of this post as I ran out of space! 
          
          **Fellow Stars or agented or published authors who would like to volunteer to mentor a Black author, you can also hit me up via email or comment here, and let me know what you can offer, eg: cover help, blurb help, MS critique, social media help, etc…
          
          Thanks all!

Hey Babes! Are you querying literary agents or struggling to get readers to read your Wattpad stories? Then the Wattpad4 may have just the thing for you. We're running a story blurb workshop over in the forums! (A story blurb is essentially the same content that goes into a query letter). Come join us and start working on a blurb that will be sure to catch your ideal readers' attention! https://www.wattpadwriters.com/t/wattpad4-may-chat-workshop-story-blurbs-and-query-letter-content/241179
          
          Hope you all are keeping well!

@RebeccaSky TYSM for posting a link to this. Blurbs and covers especially are always scary for me, especially when I get concerned that the blurb might be turning other people away T_T

@RebeccaSky Exactly! I've rewritten mine hundreds of times and I'm never happy. They either tell too much or not enough. It's maddening.
