I heard back from my editor about Pixeldust! She actually really likes it, which is a huge relief! Yes, there are parts that need fixing, but overall she says it's her favorite of my books so far. I'm really glad, because I was kinda worried it was just a weird mess, haha. I probably need to start thinking more highly of my own work.

Here's what she had to say about it:

“Pixeldust” is a deep dive into the exciting and enthralling world of video games. Plot twists abound as our heroes experience the virtual world of ​Heroes of Avonell, ​even while everything they know about the game threatens to come apart at the seams. With multiple new worlds to explore and an ever-increasing list of opponents to defeat, this is a fast-paced and exciting read that artfully incorporates powerful themes like personal identity, empathy, and the power to change -- as well as a villainous plot for global domination, of course! 

That being said, there will be a pause in new chapters of Worth Searching For as I revise Pixeldust and get it ready for my proofreader to look at. I know, Chapter 3 of WSF ends on a pretty cliffhangery note. If you don't want to wait to find out what happens next, you could always read the story as it appears in the Neopian Times, or my second revised version on Pharazon's petpage (his full Neopet name is ArPharazonTheGolden *cough Tolkien nerd cough*), but honestly I vastly prefer this third revision, and please don't ever read the cringey Neopian Times version or you will never respect me as an author again.

I'm super excited to move forward with Pixeldust, and I hope to have it published sometime in July!
