Wattpad 101

Are you ready to meet up with your 1929 friends again? Purling Road is here and available on Wattpad for FREE! So just what is Wattpad?

Wattpad describes itself like this. "Wattpad is a place to discover and share stories: a social platform that connects people through words. It is a community that spans borders, interests, languages. With Wattpad, anyone can read or write on any device: phone, tablet, or computer."

That's right. You can access Wattpad on all devices - even your Kindle! Here's where you can find the apps:

Wattpad for Apple

Wattpad for Android

Wattpad for Kindle

So you downloaded the app or access Wattpad on your computer. What's next? Create an account! Use the Log in with Facebook option OR create your own log in using an email address and password.

Now that you're in, you can find M.L. Gardner here on Wattpad and follow her. You'll be the first to know when she's posted another episode of Purling Road! On this page, you'll also find her works in progress. If you click on them, you can add the works to your personal reading list.

If you're reading on a mobile device, you'll find that you can comment WITHIN the story. What a fun way to interact with other readers and with M.L. Gardner. Share your thoughts! We want to hear them. If you're reading on a computer, comments will display below the story. Instructions for both are here.

And good news, you don't have to have Internet access to read stories saved to your library. According to Wattpad, you can do this: 

Reading offline on the Android Wattpad app

To read offline on your Android device, you must login and download your library when you have an internet connection until it has fully downloaded and once the covers are no longer faded. Once all of your stories have a bright cover, you will be able to read them when you are without internet.

Reading offline on the iOS Wattpad app

To read offline on your iOS device, you must login and download your library when you have an internet connection until it has fully downloaded and once the covers are no longer faded. Once all of your stories have a bright cover, you will be able to read them when you are without internet.

Go on now! You're ready to reunite with Jonathan, Ava, Aryl, Claire, Caleb, Arianna, Maura and a slew of other characters in Purling Road, Episode 1, Season 1. Welcome home.
