Thanks for the thoughts, Miladysa, and I'm glad you enjoyed what you read!
I changed the Home page now so it has an excerpt from the most recent story on top, and the News posts underneath that. I have a link that drops down from the "Read" button to go to the start of the current story. Is that button too hidden, you think?
I've taken most of the inspiration for my navigation from web comics, so I'm still working out the best way to adapt that to web fiction.
What would your suggestion be instead of the current "Chapter List" page? There are multiple stories, yes, but they share characters and setting, and will probably eventually share plot elements, so I want to have them all in one place. They're intended to run in sequence, not be completely independent. Just trying to get a clearer sense of what your feedback is on this point. Thanks.
