I wish people would be upfront about crowdfund. It pisses me off that I'll read a story I'm really enjoying and BOOM.....crowdfund or story is held hostage. Seriously? When I came to AFF a few years ago, it was free. Now people want you to pay for reading stories. As much as I may love someone's writing, I will not be told I have to pay or wait indefinitely to read more of the story. I don't mind so much if I have to wait a day or two but not 2 months or whatever. Unsubscribe button works for me. Ok.....done ranting.
