    Never started a thread! Working on editing. I've got adverbs and passive verbs under check, but sticky sentences get me every time...

    New cover is coming along thanks to @Viergacht ... can't wait to see it...

    After another go-through, I'll stick it in Scrivener and get the ARCs sent out to look for other oopsies...

    Tightened up the game mechanics a bit as well as some other problems...

    It's a plugin. I paid $45/year, I believe.

    Think I finally worked out how to make the game mechanics more important/essential in the first half of the book and tie it to the end of the book. Finally! Heh.

    Overall, I think the extra polish will be worth it. Just a couple more minor fixes, and it's ready to go. Should have the new cover soon too.

    It's a modified version of Buick Grunge. I liked it because it had a futuristic yet tribal vibe that seemed to fit the setting.
