Whether you're writing fiction or non-fiction, drafting an eBook, audio book, blog, video essay or something a little more traditional, it is almost impossible to improve your craft or create an objectively good final product without the knowledge and opinions of others
Making both his novel and YouTube debut in 2012 Will Jordan, or The Critical Drinker as he's more widely known on the internet, is one of the many media and film critics who have seen their popularity exponentially increase in the wake of Star Wars Ep 8: The Last Jedi. A born and proud native of Scotland, "The Drinker" will treat your feelings with as much tender loving care as he does his liver 12 hours into a standard pay-day weekend. If you are a connoisseur of tough love as much as you are a lover of the objective analysis of media, then he is the Jordan you will want on your team as you learn to criticize and improve upon your own projects.

Making his YouTube debut in January of 2015, Shad Brooks' primary channel now holds over 1.3 million subscribers with 200-600k regularly viewing as he educates the masses on Medieval European cultures, customs, weapons, and common myths and misconceptions. The latter of these being some of his most popular topics as he debunks and scrutinizes popular media's use of armor, weapons, tactics, and common stereotypes inspired by or directly pulled from the time period.
Shad is also a self-made success story outside of the internet. As an independent author Shad utilized the momentum from his then 800k+ subscriber base along with the assistance of Ingram Spark to launch his debut novel "Shadow of the Conqueror," a high fantasy story with a magic system that is as unique as the chosen point of view for the protagonist.
