I recognised your username as soon as the notification came up. Yes, it is I, of KH13 mythology. It has been quite some time since the days of Pokemon Showdown!

I hope you do check it out, especially with the game fresh in your mind. The introduction to the book has a summary of the story in broad strokes, but nothing really compares to the true experience first hand :)

Haha, I didn't expect to be recognised at all so that was nice, and yeah I haven't gotten very far in the game but have absolutely enjoyed what I have played, I did read the preview however and I enjoyed your writing style quite a lot!

And just for the record I'm definitely not as bad at Pokemon as you might remember :ROFLMAO:

Hey, peak KH13 days, of course I remember. I haven't played Pokemon Showdown since 2016 so you're very likely a lot better than I am now anyway!

Glad you liked what you read (even if it was just my foreword on getting into Final Fantasy) - I also put out content via my website (www.ajexmi.wordpress.com) that is free, and you can follow on Twitter/Facebook for updates (Ajexmi/Ajexmi Arts). I hope you do get around to finishing FFIX though, would love your feedback on the book.

Wow, this is a great book! Thanks for sharing it here, otherwise I might never have known about it!
Thank you for reading it! If you enjoyed it, please do leave a review on Amazon/Goodreads when you get the chance. It helps the book appear more often in recommendations so other people can find it too :)

I congratulate you, I want to read. I love this book so much that I have already written an essay, which remains to be corrected and sent for review by my teacher. The company https://edubirdie.com/correct-my-essay helps me with editing and correcting my text and I hope it turns out very good.
