Q. Will you read my story?
A. Probably not. I don’t like unsolicited advertising (a.k.a. spam). Some authors don’t mind if you send them a message asking them to check out their stuff, but I do. When I get messages like this, I normally don’t bother replying.
Q. Will you ask your readers to check out my story?
A. Probably not. If I do endorse a story (I haven’t yet), it’s because I have read it and liked it a lot. There are some stories I like, and I will put them in a reading list which you’ll be able to see on my profile. I have a couple of stories on my one reading list so far, but I will add more.
Q. Will you read my story and give me honest feedback?
Q. Why are your updates so short?
A. They’re not! All my most recent chapters are the longest in the story — each is approximately 2,000 words long. With fiction, a chapter may seem longer or shorter depending on the pacing.
Q. Could you write longer updates next time?
A. I could, but I don’t want to. With this story, 2,000 words is a good length for a chapter. This 2,000-word limit is not arbitrary. A story chapter’s length is as long as it needs to be for the author to tell a certain beat, scene or event. This length works for TBP, and I will probably stick to it.
Q. Why can’t I see [chapter/update/etc.]?
Q. Are you Filipino?
Q. When is the next update of The Billionaire’s Price?
A. Usually about five days from the day the latest chapter was posted, give or take a few days.
Q. Can you update TBP every day please?
A. While I would love to be able to do nothing but write, I have a job. I need to make time for fiction writing. Sometimes I skip parties and meeting my friends just so I can write. So, no, I can’t update the story every day.
Q. Why do you do this to me? (A.K.A. Why must you end the chapter with a cliffhanger?)
