By the way, can I just say how awesome you guys are? Angels and Assassins has accumulated over 100 reviews in a month, and I do look at them and take down any constructive feedback I come across.
I’m just checking in as I haven’t posted in a while. I’ve been working on a few different things that I’ve been giving my full attention (especially since they’re paying my bills lol).

“Where is he, Syd?”
