Any chance you'd be willing to quit your job and become a full-time author? Based on this story, you could make it. (In fact, you should consider pulling the story and selling it to kickstart a new career or side-career.)
Just caught up on LUCID. Great story. Looking at the last few chapters, the release rate seems... infrequent. Is there a reason the releases are so slow atm and can I expect it to pick up again at some point?
