Just received a stats update from Jake, my boss at FlashFictionOnline. Check this out!!

"In May, people read stories 3051 times (2568 HTML, 483 PDF).
2373 of these (78%) were new stories, while 678 (22%) were Classic Flashes.
Interestingly, only 1759 of the stories (58%) were from this month's issue; the rest were from previous months. The most-read stories were, not surprisingly, from the name-brand writers: Carl Frederick got 154, Jim Van Pelt 84, Eric Garcia 78.
Suzanne Vincent is rookie of the month with an anomalous (but happy) 126 reads, beating out pros Bruce Holland Rogers and Dave Hoing. ("Master's Will" has been read about 580 times since it was published, not counting March, for which there are data errors. If we normalize March to be the average of the other months, it's probably around 660.) The rookie behind her was Rod Santos with 69."

So then I Googled "I Speak the Master's Will" and got this:

From Christopher Kastensmidt's (a talented writer I met at Zoetrope) website From his LISTS page, under Speculative Short Fiction, with the byline, "Here are some of my favorite speculative short fiction writers."
"Suzanne Vincent - Stories filled with emotion. One to look for: "I Speak the Master's Will""

Thanks Chris!
