Why so expensive? Where are my gems going??

12 gems per chapter is too much considering it would take 8 hours to gain that many without paying. I wish the clock auto reset after 4 hours if you don’t check in. Also, I’ll watch videos to earn gems and they don’t stick! The app will say I don’t have enough when I do and if I close out of the app and go back in the gem I’ve earned just disappears. It’s also hard to exit a story sometimes. It won’t allow me to hit any of the top buttons and I have to force the app closed. The pictures you pay for are obviously not made for the story you’re reading and rather stock photos that are applied accordingly. One time the photo was intended to be someone’s home but was really a picture of the inside of a furniture store with random pieces of furniture everywhere including a bed right next to what would be a living room. I like the app but I know I’ll get frustrated and delete it eventually.

Chapter releases & Gems

Honestly, this app has interesting and awesome stories. Enveloping you into the story and piquing you’re interest even more, to continue reading.

But, if a new book comes out, there should be an every week, new released chapter. For example, every Wednesday, 2 to 3 new chapters of the story will be released on every Wednesday. There should honestly be a deadline because there is one story that I know about (don’t know if there are other stories with authors that do the same as the one I’m trying to read) that I’ve been waiting weeks (about to be a month, no kidding) for a new chapter and nothing is released. I don’t want this app to lose customers because I honestly believe it’s such a good app with great stories, but to be completely upfront, that’s how you lose customers.
Hopefully, you guys can fix this. It would be much appreciated.
Also, the reduction of gems would be nice. There are some people who can’t really afford to buy gems because they don’t have enough money. So, please, reduce the amount of gems needed to be wasted for each chapter and each picture & video. Thank you so much for taking your time to read this and I hope you all take care.

Love it just wish for books to have second parts to them...

I love Lure, just wish it didn't take so long to get gems or even if you keep it the same amount of time but offer more gems then. Having new chapters not costing some much to unlock...12 gems each chapter is a lot. Would there be anyway to be able to write to the author or for the author to announce when new chapters will be updated, or if there will be a part 2 to the story. I love Devils Appetite! I was so disappointed when it ended and found out there wasn't another book on what happened to Selena and Nicolo. Was hoping there would be another story about their future.

Is there anyway to put on here a way to message the writers or a way for them to make posts. To let us the readers know when new chapters are coming out and if there will be a second story. I just finished "In Love with My Kidnapper" I want to know if there is a second story or that was it...
