Inkitt – So Far
I was requested to write a post about Inkitt by one of my followers. Chloe King has not been there long and hasn’t updated her stories in a while. From what I can see. Mind she has released another Novella for everyone to enjoy. Here is the link and NOW BACK TO INKITT
Passion by the Sea can be found on Amazon.
INKITT is well set out. It has a lot of Authors from countries where English is a second language, meaning as a reader, you can struggle at times to work out what they mean. There are also those who don’t do their research.
When you start a new book you have to fill in all the different areas to be approved. It takes at least 24 hrs to get approval. You will also need some kind of book cover like you do on WATTPAD.
What I do like is their structure for REVIEWING a book. It is great. It gives you four areas to look at and comment on. You are not allowed negative commenting, though you can (if you’re a good reviewer) assess something in a positive way to help a writer build their story. Most will be grateful for your input. However, some won’t.
If you are a writer on there and swap a review, please be careful. If you give them a bad review then they will give you a worse one. How do I know…Well, I read Chloe’s reviews and she told me about one person who in fact didn’t listen. Mind it is their loss. This other writer deleted the REVIEW Chloe did for her book (YES YOU CAN DO THIS ON INKITT) I personally think this should be stopped. How can an author learn or readers get an indication of how good or bad a writer is if they can delete. On top of this, some writers get five-star reviews and they really shouldn’t. WINCES.
A lot of the stories are messy and need editing, however, you can find good reads too. Building up a following is hard unless you update frequently and share in the review blog area and on your social media. Chloe doesn’t enter any competitions. Mainly due to hearing and reading things about INKITT which don’t seem right re – publishing with them and how they score stories, etc.
If anyone wants a picture of how to set up a story on INKITT let me know and I’ll write a post about it.
Overall INKITT is ok. Different from WATTPAD in different ways.
