A Few Updates

Well, it appears the copy of Scary Mary has been removed from Wattpad. That's encouraging. I don't know if it was the member or the site admin that removed it. I think probably the site admin since my comments to the member were unanswered. I get the feeling she's no longer participating on the site. I don't know if I should go put it up on Wattpad or not. I don't really want to. Offering the story in multiple locations will just make managing responses difficult.

Scary Mary is still getting downloaded on Smashwords. I'm over 150 free downloads now. Still don't know if that's normal or not, but either way it's encouraging. It hasn't been approved yet for the premium catalog, but I did reload it over the weekend so that probably made it go to the back of the queue. Still no reviews of it, but it has only been a few days. I have noticed that the site is sluggish a lot and there were a few times where it would not load at all. That's a little frustrating, but so far, I'm pleased with the experience.

I don't know if Smashwords will offer Scary Mary through Amazon. They format it for the Kindle, but from a few things I've read, they haven't been able to upload items to Amazon for some time. I may have to go the direct route with Amazon, but like the iPad, Amazon requires a price of at least .99 to be listed. Still feel weird about offering it free one place and charging at another.
