You dont understand. She never said she was more important than anyone. I personally feel for smaller authors and wish they could get more recognization but some of you tend to forget that we ALL started from NOTHING. We all had 0 reads, we all had to work hard, to publish chapter after chapter before finally getting some recognization. And now when were ‘at the top’ its just like some people hate us for being popular! I dont think we deserve to be hated just because readers like to read our stories. I am THANKFUL for every reader, every fan and I will never stop claiming it. I would be NOTHING without my readers, without my followers but this doesnt mean I dont deserve to find new readers just because one of my story has lots of reads, I m sorry but this makes no sense to me. Yes the rank system affects me cause I earn money and yes I know this is not a safe job but I chose to take the risk. Why? Simply because it is my passion and I’d rather write than do anything else in the world. For 2 years I’ve earned more than a simple job would give me in France so YEAH I took the opportunity, like many other authors. Now seeing you all blaming us for that is upsetting me very much. ‘Real’ authors take risks too, they dont know how much books they will sell, how much money they will make when writing a book, singers, painters (etc) too, this is the ARTIST LIFE, it is risky and sometimes unfair but we are PASSIONATE and so that’s why we choose to take that kind of risks, because we love what we do and it doesnt give you the right to judge us for our choices. By working full time on episode, we can work more which means we update more which means we make our readers more happy to have 4/5 chapters a month instead of one. No we are not entitled to our rank, weve got to work harder and harder just like everyone else to stay where we are, we can make mistakes too, publish a non popular story too, being popular doesnt mean being forever at the top unlike what some of you may think. I personally had multiple offers from other companies and declined them because I love my readers and I love the episode app so yeah, I would be disappointed if this rank thing stayed the same.
