The first round of beta readers has read Soulsmith in its rough, unpolished form, giving me a new handful of cracks to fill in before the second wave seizes it in their filthy jaws.
And just listen to the praise from these discerning, steely-eyed critics who have analyzed the book thus far:
"Soulsmith was really good, and I loved the conversations between Lindon and Yerin, but it's so fast-paced and there's so much going on that I couldn't take a break and I couldn't breathe and it really stressed me out."
"Your characters sound slightly less like they're quoting dubbed anime at each other."
"You have to write a romance this time, Will. You can't avoid it. Don't hang up on m--"
"This was the best unreleased, half-finished book based on Chinese mythology and written by you that I've read this month. So far."
"Stop using me as the butt of all your jokes. I'm a real person, and I have real feelings."
