Thanks so much for the review! Sorry you found the AI art off-putting; obviously, we used as much illustration as we could get done in the Jam period, but we ultimately decided that the AI offerings were a better option than any other low-cost art we could find, such as clip art. We felt that the product looked better with art on each spread than with the text walls we were getting in the first layout. You may be interested to know that Gabe actually retouched each AI image (I believe); they're all human-AI collaborations.
Glad you enjoyed the writing! It's kind of my first effort at a mystery, so I'm grateful for the feedback. If I take another crack at the genre, I'll be sure to include more clue lines. Thanks again for taking the time to leave a review that is both encouraging and thoughtfully constructive.
