Alright - I went to bed with 23 results, which I told myself I'd get to right in the morning.
And I woke up to 64.


I guess social media really has some serious power.

They have a report compilation option or two and I'm going to try to see if I can get it to work right. LOL

But I was also doing this for correlation - things based on gender breakdown, for example - which is something I need to do manually. So If the responses are going to be so grand - which is totally kickass - I'm going to compile statistics once every few days or so until they taper off.

Okay - their share-link options weren't working properly. Why fuss when I can just host it through my website. LOL Results for first 77:

Thanks for saying something :)

That should work - it does for me, at least.

Now that was pulled this morning when I had less than 80 responses. Now I've had more than 100. I'll pull results again at a later time. For a first-peek it's rather interesting.

My responses are recorded. Very interesting results so far. I had no idea that I'd be in the age group with the largest number of respondents! Suddenly I feel much more at home. :)

I just looked over the text answers - a lot of diversity there and I'm actually surprised at the number of people willing to give an answer (at least 40 - out of 118. The number of people who've responded is still steadily climbing).

Favorite author: D H Lawrence. (3 people wrote him in. 2 people said Lisa Bradley) - now mind you, most people so far seem to be from Lush but I'm pushing it through social media sources as well so the results will continue to grow and change. Whoever said 'You, Metilda' is a gem - and made me snort soda through my nose. Thanks.

Favorite character: Edward Cullen (3 votes). 4 people also said things like 'strong females' in general - a few said some type of dominant males. And I noted that of the variety of male characters named, like Edward, I'd classify them as 'beta' male and not 'alpha' male. (Sorry Edward fans. LOL).

I actually think I'll have fun with the text responses on my blog in the next week (for published authors) - I'll hunt down links to them and list them all in a blog post.

Interesting results so far. Admittedly, a few questions are going to be skewed simply because of your sampling means. Still very interesting to read.

Yes - which is why I put in a few specific questions so I can filter out people based on those answers. (like - once I sort through in excel, I can filter out people who only responded with 'I read online' . . . or I can filter out all the males and look only at females - etc.).

There is a larger number of people not coming from places like Lush as it spreads around here and there. In the beginning it was mostly Lush.

I sent out a few emails to book-sellers and the larger romance / erotica book tour sites and other related venues where the paying audiences roost . . . and I hope at least one or two picks it up and is willing to slip it into a news letter or blog it.

Thank you, Frozen :) That'll be very helpful. I just got in from the store and took a look - 181 responses have been logged.
