I've gotten quite a few emails. All positive so far, some very constructive in their critique. All very much appreciated. You know how it says that your feedback is our only payment? I never really gave it much thought until I posted this story. It sure is true.
Our other payment is watching the SOL score. I probably check it a little too often after posting a chapter. I had one anonymous email that said, "I don't know how this story is only getting a 7.6 or whatever it has. It's really good. I'd guess only reason that it is that low is there's no chapter long sex scene, but interesting story."
I'd hope that isn't the reason, but alas, it could be. I guess I write the kind of story I would like to read. There are plenty of good stroke stories out on SOL. I wanted this one to be Science Fiction, more "space opera."
I do have a fairly good TPA of 8.8.9. But the overall score is actually a relative score to the other stories posted in the same time period. Oh well, no sense obsessing. It's only a score and it will be what it will be.
Don't get me wrong. These are not complaints. Merely observations. I am truly blessed that I have received such positve feedback. Thanks again!
