WattPad to PubPad?
The world of publishing is changing, and not only in terms of the type of media it produces. The popular online storytelling application Wattpad is creating a publishing division, called Wattpad Books, that uses technology to scan the stories published on the site to find ones that would generate the most commercial success. Of course, the publishing division will also have human editors to help in the process. This is a fascinating concept on two levels: not only is the publishing industry starting to utilize technology to find promising unpublished works, but one of the largest online writers’ communities will be able to provide its users the opportunity to be formally published under their own brand.
