About a month ago, I posted the second Jessie Hanks story to this site. It didn't get near as many reads as the Eerie stories usually get, and the second part got a lot less than the first part did. The two parts only got a couple comments.
I'd like to know why.
It isn't that people don't like my work. As a test, I posted "Vengeance" a week ago. It got a lot more reads and a heck of a lot more comments. Even if two of those comments were about my lousy spelling of an unfamiliar word.
Chris and I keep getting comments and questions about our Eerie stories, how much people enjoy them and how much they're looking forward to the next installment. A lot of folks say that Jessie is their favorite character.
Then we post a new installment and nothing.
We're gearing up on the writing of "Eerie Saloon: Seasons of Change -- Summer." It has a bunch of new characters and new plotlines, as well as the continuation of existing plotlines. It's a lot of work, and it's going to take us a while.
But, is it worth it if we don't get any feedback?
What did we do wrong with "Cameo Murder", the second Jessie Hanks story? Why did the readership fall off after part one, and why were there so damned few comments?
I would seriously like to know.
