I'm No Gauge

I've been watching how my stories on Smashwords are selling and have concluded next to nothing about my audience except that they like my work. I can't tell whether they are primarily male or female, what age group they are in, and what they really like except when they give a review.

One reason for this is that some reviews give contradictory information. For example, the one review I have on Gray's World is two stars yet it is my most popular story. And the comments I've gotten on the Reaper are all over the place ranging from, "Nice but an obivous ending" to "A good fairy tale".

To add to this confusion, stories that I think are great, don't some to do as well as stories that I like less. The Monster, for example, which I released this month, has already blown passed Telescopevision which I released last month. Personally, I think, Telescopevision is a better story. I like it more but my readers obviously don't.

Curiouser and curiouser.

Regardless, I'm planning continue to release one story a month for as long as I can. I've got three more in the queue so I should be good through June.

Keep writing everyone.
