I have it on good authority that updates like this are interesting and positively received by those few of you who actually follow my blog… If this is not the case, and my trusty cheerleader is hallucinating (from malaria, do doubt), then I apologize.
Here we go. I entered 7 new pieces during the weekend WEbook gave me a free pass. Here are the percentages as of tonight:
Nikko’s Bond has 30 ratings with 50% wanting it elevated.
A Gift Under the Rose has 29 ratings with 27% wanting it elevated. I suspect I will receive an email in the next day or so telling me it has been removed from consideration. They do that once a page reaches 30 votes and doesn’t show signs of moving on (and 27% is way too low).
The Firestorm Defection has 30 ratings with 40% wanting it elevated. It too is in danger of being booted…
Rules of Engagement is kicking serious ass with 30 ratings and a whopping 70% approval. It’s crazy!
The Avian Chronicles: Ascension is also doing well with 31 ratings and a 58% approval.
Blood Sisters (2) [the one in third person] is still alive with 31 ratings, but only 33% want it elevated so it may bite the bullet soon.
Blood Sisters [the one in first person] is performing better, with 29 votes and 42% wanting it elevated. I’m not sure it’s strong enough to go the distance, but it is interesting to note that my theory about first person being more popular in YA seems to be holding true…
As you know, Job Hunted was elevated a looong time ago. I have a second round submission for it, and it has 36 ratings (there were two full weeks between ratings #35 and 36) with an 88% approval rating. I am pleased with this, but am beginning to despair of ever reaching the third round with the pace things are currently at.
There you have it, folks.
