"Zombie Leza" reception 2

Posted at

Well, as I'd hoped, despite a poor initial inception to my "Zombie Leza" story (scores of 6.42), the scores have been rising as readers get familiar with the story. One interesting note, though, is that while the 7 scores are higher than the others on SOL, the scores on FS are leaning heavily in the 10 scores. I'm not sure what's the cause of this, but I'm guessing (purely conjecture on my part) that although many SOL readers cross over, that FS has more younger readers (14+, which is my suggested reading age for the story) who view zombie stories more favorably than the older SOL crowd. However, there still aren't many readers taking a chance on the story (the story's only getting 1,000 reads per chapter, vs the 6,000 my stories tradtionally get).

I'm still hoping that once the story completes, more readers will decide to read it, just to see what it's like. Like most of my stories, I rarely take a traditional approach, turning regular genres on their heads. This story is very much like that.

I'd like to thank everyone who stuck with the story, as these are the chapters where the story really gets interesting.
