Teymour Shahabi (teymourshahabi) Hello fellow authors / readers!

I'm just about to release my debut novel, a self-published young adult mystery titled "The Secret Billionaire..." And I have one final editing question for all of you! Do you say "toward" or "towards?" I'm getting all kinds of conflicting responses from online references -- and my own instincts -- and so I thought I'd ask the only people who matter: other authors / readers!

The situation explained at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ME_Nn...

Please let me know!

And I found this cool article online that explains it as "toward" is the American English version and "towards" is the British English version.

^^ that's not quite the same as the one I originally found, but it goes over the same thing.
I also had an issue with to/toward, editing is always so much fun :P
