After getting comments back from the editor, I've decided that Lucifer's Odyssey needs a full redraft of most, if not all chapters. I've taken down the sample chapters and will put a few of them back up when I get through the redrafts.
I have rewritten the first chapter without the major info dumps in a way that I hope will increase the pacing. As for other updates, the short stories are up to 7,500 words total, and I haven't touched Dead Winter for a couple of weeks. I'll keep everyone posted on the progress, however.
