Focus Group Part Two

I should really update more often. Eh.

So at this point, some of you have copies of the manuscript for Jack's Inferno. This is what I like to call the extended fluff version. Still needs one final edit to kill off the unnecessary dead weight, most of which is the by-product of trying to up the word count at the last minute. There are still a few sentences that need to be reworded. My earlier drafts had a tendency to got bogged down with pretentious psuedo-literary gibberish that got away from the proper tone of voice in the narration. At some point along the way I discovered the difference between, "I'm writing a book. This is how books are written. What eloquent prose I have." and "Hey dirtbag, got a story for you. Sit down and shut up." But of course, these are minor details. All feedback is appreciated. Criticism will be taken into account, and most likely ignored unless I happen to agree. After all, it's still my book at the end of the day.

That's all for now. Stay tuned.
