Well, it might help if you would identify the stories you're referring to - we have none credited to fireonthemountain.
I will note, as I have many times, that most stories do not draw a lot of feedback. The best way of tracking them is to see how well the first installment does after a week, then how well the hit count on subsequent installments does. Anything over 500 is satisfactory, 700 a real success, 1000 should be counted as a hit.

I just posted my first one, and will continue to post the majority of my stories under this username. The reason none are showing up is that they are still awaiting moderators approval. (I just posted yesterday.) I figured posting here on the writers forum would be a good way to get feedback from other regular writers once my stories are approved (these will probably be in the BHM/mutual forum) and an easy way to link to them
Sorry for the confusion Observer! :)

OK, thanks for the hint.
You need to be aware of the Library rules regarding new stories and the editing guidelines, found here (http://www.dimensionsmagazine.com/forums/showthread.php?t=8201) and referenced in the sticky at the top of every archival forum.
Stories posted elsewhere can indeed wind up in the moderation queue indefinitely. Yours has now been located, merged into a single thread, formatted, edited and posted to Recent Additions.
As an aside, its very interesting and should IMHO be a hit.
