Hi there, and welcome to the official site for Isabelle Rae!
First off I should probably tell you a little about me and how I came about writing.
Well, writing had always been something I was interested in when I was at school, but I never really took it seriously because I never thought it would lead anywhere. In October 2010 I accidentally stumbled across Wattpad, an amateur writing website where anyone can post their stories for others to read. I quickly fell in love with the site and the fact that anyone, scholar or not, could upload their work for others to read, critique and vote on. After a couple of months on there, just reading, I decided I would give it a little go myself – after all, I had nothing to lose by it! In November 2010 I uploaded the first chapter of my story on there. The feedback quickly gave me a well needed boost in confidence, and made me want to write more. Over the next year, I wrote and uploaded the first draft of my novel onto Wattpad, chapter by chapter, gaining followers and supporters on there - a lot of whom have become friends.
It took me over a year to complete the story, but what a journey. I loved every second of it, and the instant feedback from Wattpad readers was invaluable to me.
In September 2012, almost 2 years after first starting the story on Wattpad, I decided to take the plunge and self-publish it. At the time I removed the story from Wattpad, just leaving up a sample, it had amassed over 10 million reads. If I could, I would personally thank every single person who read my story, left me constructive criticism, nagged me for updates when I lagged behind, and encouraged me to finish what I’d started. Those people got me here, so thank you all. xx
Writing has become an escape for me. While writing you can be anyone, do anything, and, if you’re in a particularly naughty mood, you can write someone into a story and give them a grizzly ending… not that I’ve ever done that, of course! ;P
I’ll finish with some quick facts about me.
I am a chocoholic
I hate the ocean because I’m deathly afraid of fish
I regularly pull an all-nighter to finish reading a good book
I have an obsessive personality
I live in England (Yes, I have a cockney accent, no, it doesn’t sound like the guy from Mary Poppins)
Spell check is my best friend
I am Dazed and Confused most of the time
My real name is NOT Isabelle Rae
Hope you enjoyed my little insight into all things me, please feel free to look around the rest of my site.
