An update on the blog:

As our regular readers and subscribers may have noticed, posts for the blog so far this year have been few and far between. Despite my best efforts to keep the blog up and running, I am sorry to say at this point I must temporarily take a reprieve from reviewing at this time. I apologize for the inconvenience, and do plan to return to blogging as soon as I am able, however for the present time I will be unable to take on any new projects, or to complete any current projects within our usual time frame. I believe I have been in touch with everyone who currently has a book in queue, however if I missed you I sincerely apologize, and can easily be reached by email (epicbookquest@protonmail.com) or here on the blog at any time.

So sorry to do this guys, but I felt that after such a long time without posting I owed everyone an explanation of sorts. Thank you everyone for the understanding, and hopefully I will be able to get back to blogging within the next few months.
