So, yeah, the finalized version of the Random Freight Tables for d20 Star Wars is set, still waiting on a great artist to get back to me about the cover art (this person already said yes to the interior piece).
I also made a lot of headway on the Stronghold Builder's Addition project; the cover is set, the interior layout, all the tables, etc. I'm waiting on some permissions for interior art pieces and then it will be set. You would not believe how difficult it is to find a good "well" piece (you know, like a water cistern? the most important thing in a community?)
My Professional Guide for d20 Star Wars died of art implosion. Too much text, too little art, too little motivation.
In other news, I got an automated rejection the other day from a literary agency. It even apologized for being a mass rejection note. This is for my 575 page novel, which I am trying to find an agent/publisher. My wife loves the story, and so do I. It is something I would read and say "That's pretty good." The characters are smart, funny, naive, etc., and the highs and lows are interspersed on an epic journey of flight, fight, and finally acceptance of who they were born to be. It is a lesson that everyone needs to keep relearning, because we keep forgetting it.
