Today I have the pleasure to announce the fact, that the first chapter of the Wormworld Saga was read 250.000 times. It has been online for 26 days now and to reach this number of readings in that timeframe is a huge success in my eyes. I have prepared a top 10 of the countries, the readers came from:
Just to make things clear: I'm talking about 250K reads instad of readers because I know that a lot of people might have read the first chapter two or three times. And everytime a reader shows the first chapter to a friend and loads it up, that counts as a read. However, for me the number of reads is a good metric because I know that every read causes awareness af some sort and if someone reads the Wormworld Saga 5 times I consider him to be a big fan. And a big fan counts for 5 casual readers anyway. ;)
So, what we can see is, that the U.S. clearely leads the top 10 which I very much expected to happen. The launch of the Wormworld Saga was clearly aimed at English speaking countries and it's also no wonder to find Canada and the UK on top of the list. The high position of Germany surprises me a bit but on the other hand there were some newspaper articles and also a radio program promoting the project here so that will most likely have caused the awareness of the Wormworld Saga in Germany.
And that leads me directly to another announcement! From now on, the Wormworld Saga Online Graphic Novel is also available in a German translation! You simply access it from the Wormworld Saga Homepage
My goal for the next months is to see more dark green spots on that world map. Therefore I'm currently working on providing you the translations that fans of the project are already working on. Currently there are 7 languages in the works. If you also want to contribute to the project by translating the Wormworld Saga into your mother language, please have a look at the contribution page on wormworldsaga.com and use the contact adress provided there.
The next translation will go online on Friday. It's a cool one!
