    I really appreciate how you make these progress pages. As you say, this makes it easier to wait for something, and it also shows your readers that you care about your project by showing us your progress and process.

    Good job! It’s a great OLN and I’m glad I read it. At first I hesitated, but after 2-3 chapters I couldn’t stop reading anymore and I can’t wait to read next volume. Also, since it’s such a great series, I just recently made a wikia site with the information about the series and hope it will help more people to learn about it. It’s still under construction but you can see it at http://the-devils-spice.wikia.com/wiki/The_Devil%27s_Spice_Wikia

      Thank you for making the wiki!!! It’s absolutely awesome! Your help in spreading the word about TDS is greatly appreciated.

      I’m glad you enjoyed the story. Volume 4 is chugging along. I’m currently drafting chapter 13.

      Your wish is my command.

      Doing the PDF doesn’t really take much time, at least compared to writing (Yes, I’m the author, not the translator. I hope that doesn’t put you off from reading) the story. I can’t believe volume 4 passed 80 thousand words. The usual light novel goes around 50 thousand, so this was a significant undertaking.
