Policy on reviews, favorites, and alerts:
- Reviews: I'm not a very big reviewer, and I don't expect other readers to be any better. While reviews make me happy, like every other author around these parts, I won't go asking for any. I feel you should only review if you feel like the author deserves more of your time than what you gave from reading their work.
I reply to every signed review, simply because I feel that if you're willing to take the effort to review my writing, the least I can do is show my appreciation. I find reviews extremely difficult to write, so your input is important to me.
- Favorites: I smile every time I get an email alert telling me that one of my stories has been favorite'd. I'm not the kind of person who gets upset if you "fave and run," so if you think my work is worth it, go ahead. Favorites say more than enough.
I favorite stories that I want to be able to read again, without having to search through pages upon pages of writings; in fact, I randomly go through my favorites and read some of the stories there. To me, adding a story to your favorites is like saying that you'd read it again sometime.
- Alerts: Story alerts are the easiest way to make my day. I can't help but smile when I see a chapter to a story I follow has been added.
If I subscribe to a story, it's my way of saying, "I'm enjoying this so much, I don't want to miss the next chapter."
