Thanks! But I feel that my second draft will blow the first out of the water. lol. I'm changing up a lot, adding more premise to it, more characters, and trimming a good bit. Seemingly, I don't know how to write a book under 100k words. lol. It's VERY hard for me! lol.
Oh YEAH I'm splitting it up into two books! lol. The next one will be "Time With Seleste-Fate." It's an in all conclusion to the story, which I've worked my butt off working on a perfect ending. lol.
ANYWAYS, I got to ranting there. Sorries! lol :D

I do have faith in Wes! haha. He makes me drool, he's so yummy. haha.
