My Demon Episode 2 Published!
Sarah's strange relationship with Damien causes her unexpected problems. Threats appear that confound her and put her personal safety at risk. And strangely, Damien is hellbent on protecting her.
This second installment is 15k words.
I would like to thank everyone who took a chance on episode 1 and bravely preordered episode 2. I hope you think it's money and time well spent.
I'm about to do something that all the wise authors say not to do, but I'd like to reply to the wonderful reviewer who has left reviews on both episodes. First and foremost, THANK YOU! I really appreciate the time and effort you put into them. One thing that you highlighted that I'm still struggling to address is the expectation that My Demon will have paranormal elements. I knew I was going to possibly confuse readers by titling the work My Demon. That sounds like it might be paranormal to put it mildly. This is supposed to be a high school drama without any fantasy elements. I don't want to bluntly say in the blurb that this serial has no fantasy elements, but I'm not sure otherwise how to convey it.
Now to address some of your other questions...They will be answered in future episodes. *Very Evil Smile* Honestly, I'm not being flippant. The episodes addressing your questions are written, but still need editing.
And again, thank you for your honest and passionate reviews. I adore them.
Footnote: Generally, I do not read reviews of my work. As the wise authors say, reviews are not meant for the author, they're meant for other readers. I've seen a number of online disasters where authors forgot this simple fact. I'm peeking at reviews for My Demon though because this is still a work very much in-progress, and I think reading reviews and reactions to the episodes could help inform the direction the story takes. My Demon is a big experiment. I have five episodes still to publish, but even as I put those out, I'll be working on future installments and could possibly be inspired by reader input. I'd like this to be a dynamic project. I don't know if that's possible, but I'm willing to give it a try.
