I do feel like I need to re-do my prologue/chapter one though. Lot of people read that far and no more unfortunately. But that's good to celebrate too in a way. Shows me where I need to work to get better. ^_^
Congratulations. It's actually fairly common for people to read just the first chapter and decide the books not for them. I think the typical drop off from chapter 1 to chapter 2 is on the order of 30 to 40% of readers. Doesn't necessarily mean anything's wrong with it. However, it never hurts to update if you feel it's necessary.
Congrats! And yeah, with Chapter One being the most read, it will also be the most dropped no matter what. Still, some fine-tuning can never hurt. I know I've redone my first chapters several times over the years.
