  2. Thank you so much for mentioning me! It means alot! I’m extremely excited about the movement of cellphone novels in North America and will do my best to make this happen. I have to apologize for the lack of updates on the winksite however, because things have been busy, there are now 200 more chapters available to read on textnovel mobile I’ll try to keep my winksite updated too though.
