    nice can you also make a list of characters? sometimes I get lost after reading 30+ chapters. You do need an editor though to take your writing to the next level.

    • I know. I’m looking for one right now. An editor that is. Also there’s the character’s index. It’s updated every 4 chapters. It does not have all of the characters since the beggining though. Only the most importants and the ones that had just appeared.
