Quaking Soul Update # 4

Monster

Quaking Soul is still a monster. Period. But the monster’s not quite so surly anymore. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still bad mannered, but not as full of teeth and bite. The story’s also been through a second round of beta reading and I’m currently finishing up edits after beta feedback number two. The honing… Continue reading Quaking Soul Update # 4
