Most of my recent stories seem to be doing well with the exception of "The Substitute Soul-Mate". I tried to figure out the lack of success with this story and all I can come up with is that the "crossdressing" element most likely caused male aversion. The flavor changed from a somewhat agressive alpha male chasing pussy into a submissive male being pussy-whipped by his chosen soul-mate substitute. It was sort of a "tables turned" scenario. Then again, the story was based more on an unhealthy "obsession" aspect that triggered a downward spiral in the hero's persona. Male reader's would tend to change their attitude from envy to pity and finally disgust at his wimpy performance. A pussy-hound with feet of clay. In this story, the names have been changed to protect the not so innocent.
