Wattpad featured story

25 April 2014 / Leave a Comment
I'm excited to have my 10,000-word novella Bequest featured on Wattpad. The story went live on the featured list yesterday afternoon and it's been amazing to watch the number of reads increase overnight. My first votes were from Brazil and Vietnam - showing just how global Wattpad really is.

Bequest is about an old man named Leonard who wants to donate his tattooed skin to the National Gallery of Australia. He has been almost completely inked by one of Australia's best contemporary artists, but he is a canvas that nobody wants. Strange things start happening to Leonard, Darwin’s moth, a tattoo from his calf, flutters around him one night, he wakes with a Cold War gas mask on his head, Mao Tse Tung appears in his bed. Tattoos from his skin come alive before him and he becomes more convinced than ever that his skin is truly precious.
