    I mean they've terminated well-established authors in the past because they don't have a good system in place to check assumed copyright infringements. I myself almost got my account blacklisted once despite doing exactly what they asked me to do to prove it was my stuff. So yeah, I'd say there...

    Yeah, I was a little befuddled when that happened. I mean, not a bad thing I guess. I don't really wanna jump through hoops to publish my stuff there but just ... how unexpected for them to be uncomplicated for once :blob_blank:

    I don't understand Amazon. If I publish a short story that I've previously uploaded on SH and Tapas, I gotta reassure them it's mine. Unless I take out the chapter headlines and add a glossary because that apparently makes it distinctive enough? o.O

    Really now? Spam comments advertising a coffee machine? On the website of a tea drinker who writes about people drinking tea all the darn time? :blob_neutral:

    My To-Do List is really just "Finish writing these 12 stories", "Finish editing these 10 stories", "Translate these 5 stories". Shit, I gotta actually finish up that stuff sometime soon. Why did I think again it was a good idea to have two accounts? :blob_sweat:

    Not a problem, @Nahrenne! I actually enjoy scrolling through pictures (I mean, normally, when the results are actually good :blob_sweat:) because there are some awesome ones around that inspire me to new things and I love thinking about how I could incorporate them into working covers. It's...

    What do you think about minimalistic style of writing?

    As an author, I actually like to do it, especially in modern stories. Like, I'll expect the readers to know what the fuck the apartment of a 20-something guy looks like. They've all seen one, probably. The further a story strays from the reality of our world though, the more I'd step away from...

    @Ddraig, in that case, there shouldn't be any women because I usually exclude them for maximum gay energy :blobrofl: Seriously though, that's not how those sites work (I'm not using google since I need them for commercial use) but I also had normal results for the most part. It just stuck out to...

    @Nahrenne, I'm afraid not. Usually, I'm looking for something specific but I only ever know that this is it when I actually see it. I think I did spot one yesterday but I'll have to look through it some more when there's more time and maybe try some other terms for more variety

    Be able to post updates to readers

    Yes, I meant that more as a workaround for now where you can at least reach subscribers/followers. I do agree that it'd be neat to be able to reach all readers as long as it's for specific stories. Like, Tapas has this thing where if you put a story in your library, you automatically follow that...

    No, no, but that was when I finally abandoned my choice of search terms because apparently, you just don't look for blonde women in the kitchen :blob_sweat:

    Be able to post updates to readers

    If readers follow an author, they will be notified about anything the author posts on their profile. It's enough for short updates so snippets probably won't fit. So I guess we kind of have that already, just for the author in general and not for specific works.

    I've self-published more than 20 books and short stories but the last time went so badly thanks to some Amazon bot that I got anxiety at the thought of doing it again today :blob_blank: It's about darn time I woman up though and get back into publishing :blob_pout:

    Haha, I could but I usually just add it in when I finally realize that I'm definitely not getting around it anymore. I should edit it in, in the previous chapters whenever I get around to a full edit though :blob_hmm:

    *new side character appears* Me: Ah, they don't need a name! They'll be gone soon enough ~ *10 chapters later* Me: Maybe I should have given them a name :blob_blank: Does it make sense to give them one now? Maybe they'll stay around for longer ... :blob_hmm:
