The chick I was waiting for was taking too long and making too many excuses, so I parted ways with her. I got a couple more estimates from artists I like for cover art, but they wanted $,2000-$3000. I'd like to see whether or not my writing interests anyone before I spend that kind of money on a cover. Bought this one for $35 from James over at Humblenations.com. I like the color scheme, and I think it captures the theme and soul of the book.
Getting good feedback on Polarized. None of the criticisms I agree with are anything I can't fix in revision. The predominant feeling I'm getting is, "good writing, descriptive, but I don't know how this ties into the plot." That's fine. It's a mystery in many ways. I'll let them know how it ties in when they see the end.
