My novel A Kindness of Ravens now has 8 ‘chapters’ posted on Royal Road and most of them have more than 2 readers. One reader and it could just be me. Two and it could just be my spouse and I. More than 2 and someone else is definitely reading it.
I don’t have much in the way of feedback yet but I don’t have any hate mail so it can’t be as bad as I fear it is in my worst moments. Of course I don’t have hordes of adoring fans queuing up to prostrate themselves at my feet, yet, so part of me is convinced it’s a horrible failure.
After 4 days of double posting tomorrow will be the first day with a single update. This is because we’re now getting into longer chapters. If you’ve been putting off reading it because you wanted a bit more length first it’s now roughly 24 paperback pages long and, as a bonus, the most recent chapter includes one of the funniest jokes I’ve ever written.
I’m going to keep mentioning this thing, because I’m proud of it and (at the moment at least) I still want people to read it. But how often is too often? If you have any opinions on that then please tell me what they are by commenting.
