It's been a while since I've posted on here. I've done a few reviews of other weblit in the past, though some of my older ones aren't showing up in my history for some reason. I like to try and give different stories a chance when I can. Now, I understand that some stories are simply more popular than others, and some stories just fit an editor's mood at the time. I get that completely---that's why I don't write reviews all the time. But I have one frustration, and it is this:
Eikasia has been up on WFG for nearly three or four years now. It's one of the highest member rated stories in its category. I've managed to encourage a number of honest and genuine reviews from my readers and fellow weblit authors.
...But the story still lacks a proper editor review.
Sonya didn't do a full review, making a promise to return later to finish. She never did. At the time, there were eight chapters up for Eikasia. There are now 2 complete books and one nearly finished in the series, for a total of 33 complete chapters. I've even extensively edited and revamped much of the series. I'm not sure what it is I have to do to get editorial attention, but I'd really appreciate a full review from one of you folks. Eikasia is not perfect, but I think the reader response has shown that it clearly has something worthwhile.
As for Akumu Love Panic!...again, I get that editors who pick stories to review do so on their own time, and so tend to gravitate towards what might interest them most. I think people get scared away by my initial pitches (which are admittedly bad) but ALP! is my new baby, and the quickly growing reader base is telling me that I'm onto something there too. Maybe it's just a niche thing, but if someone, ANYone, not just an editor, could give a detailed review of the story, I would love them forever. If you're a weblit author, I would be more than happy to return the favor for one of your works.
Thank you for reading this. Just to be clear, I'm not trying to pick a fight with the editors---I think you guys do outstanding work---I'm just trying to call your attention to something that might be worth your time.
