February 11, 2018: To our readers...
Posted by AC

I have always believed that the Fort Family readers were awesome, and these last few days have proved it!

All of us site owners have access to statistics which give us a count of how many chapters have been read in stories. When a new chapter, story, or author goes live, each of us watches to make sure that they are getting exposure and not being buried. Mattering how busy it gets, that means we might make temporary adjustments to the amount of new chapters shown on the main page, or we will do a special news summary. Since January 1st, not only has the Cafe' had a record number of new chapters up until now, but I have found that even with as busy as it has been you readers are still finding previous updates and reading them at the same pace as you would in slower months.

To the Cafe' authors, I congratulate you on how well your stories have held up under this surge - it proves that you really do write awesome stories when your readership does nothing but increase in quantity and speed in accessing new chapters. You guys are the reason for the Cafe', and I'm proud of how all of you continue to gain more followers.

I would like to give a quick summary of the 2018 posts to date, just to acknowledge everyone who has contributed to this awesome start to the new year:

There you have it as of now; an amazing 91 chapters in under one-and-one-half months!

Thank you Authors and Readers for chosing the Cafe'; you're all the BEST!
