Well, it looks like this story is a real bust compared to my other efforts. So far, there are barely over 500 downloads, and that is a drop in the bucket as compared to my other stories. Nevertheless, I am going to stick with it to the bitter end--so there! LOL
I do want to thank the people who have given the story a chance. I like it, but I suppose that the lack of sex and the horror nature are two strikes against it. Maybe people will like my next effort better. I hope so.
This is my new story starting on Tuesday, 11/07/17. I decided to call it a horror story "just for the Hell of it." Though it might be called science fiction story of the alien invasion type, or maybe an action/adventure story. Anyway, here is the blurb. I hope people enjoy it. By the way, I am not allowing voting on this story for now. Please comment on the story instead. That capability will be opened as soon as I can manage it. Here is the blurb:
This is an old time horror story in the spirit of "Frankenstein meets the Wolf Man," etc. A pair of Sioux shaman try to drive the Whites out of the sacred Black Hills by unleashing demons and monsters from Sioux mythology. They are more successful than they had dreamed. This is the story of the attempt to rid the world of a rash of blood-thirsty demons. Can they do it? 12 chapters. Minimal sex.
I am about ready to cancel voting on this story. I am sick and tired of the way Lazeez manipulates scores. I know that it is his site and he can do anything he wishes, but I know from the reaction from readers that the story is better than his score indicates.
I know all of the bullshit about how scoring is for readers, not writers, but this may be the last push I need. I find the score insulting to the point of almost giving up on SOL, much as I appreciate the job Lazeez does on the other parts of it, but I have been insulted by the scoring about as long as I can take.
It looks to me like the "1" voters have moved up to "5" or "6" to escape the automatic rejection of their votes, but I have not seen any real change in the adjusted vote on my stories except that they have drifted down from the range of 7.5 to the upper 6s all because of Lazeez's adjustments. Therefore, if the scores on my stories don't start to rise over the next month or so, I will block voting. How can a story with a majority of votes being "8" and up, warrant a rating in the upper 6s?
Yeah, I know, that means that the trolls have won, but my ulcer cannot take much more of this foolishness!
This latest posting is purely a sex romp to be read for the fun of it. My wife said that it was an ideal "summer read," not to be taken seriously, but just for pure entertainment. Here is the blurb:
This is the story of how my sister and I cooked up a way for us to make a lot of money while still in high school. I pretended to be her sex slave as a selling point to the other girls in the school who were afraid of being intimidated by boys. As her sex slave, I would be assumed to be harmless and a safe first-time sex partner. Our business grew to be a major business in the city, and this is the story of how that happened. 13 chapters. Much sex.
I hope you like it.
I have written several stories which feature a vastly superior replicator. Actually, it is much more than simply a replicator, but I really don't know what to name it. It is a descendant of the basic replicator as seen on "Star Trek," but it has evolved into much more than that. The driving force behind the replicator is an AI that is seven billion years old. That AI can answer questions as well as supervise the replicator, but it cannot make suggestions. However, that restriction is stretched on occasion.
The first story posted in the series is "Paradise Found" and should be read first, because it has the backstory of the replicator. The second story is "Damyankee in the Wild West," and is only related to "Paradise Found" by the presence of the replicator. Other than that, it is a purely independent story.
The replicator has an unlimited energy source because it uses Dark Energy. The raw material is Dark Matter, and any item made by the replicator can be recycled back into Dark Matter when it is no longer needed.
Yes, this is very much like a magic ring or magic lantern story, so keep that in mind before you complain about it. I have started several more stories using this replicator, but I don't know when they will be finished. In any case, they will not be posted until they are finished.
