There are a lot of Instagram accounts that offer reviews. Because they have so many followers, the better the review they post about your story, the more likely the people who follow them will read your story.
I wouldn’t worry about reads too much!
I have a different Episode account with 2 incomplete stories published (I’m still writing on that account). When I published my first story, I was so excited to get reads I felt like a little kid But you quickly realise that not having a million reads doesn’t mean the end of the world. One of my stories has 5.1K and the other has 1.1K, I’m content with that Especially because they are no where near finished!
My advice is to say just focus on writing the best story you can with the best directing you can. The reads will follow. It may take time but it will happen
