Probably because I was thinking back then the same thing I'm thinking now; Could Jhonny do with a love interest? Sure. Does he need one? Not really.

I've been too lost in Prison Architect for the past like, 20 hours to do any writing, even though I want to lol.

In other news, I re-installed the free Photoshop trial and found a random concept book cover for Terminal Illness that I made over a year ago (it's too big to put it in the forums). I couldn't open the .psd file after the free trial expired, so I just forgot about it until now, lol.

Interesting that the title on the forum and your working title are different. It's a little red, but its impressive how the background matches the description of Yerba Buena in the story.

As for the background, this is the picture I used (or at least one similar to this one): http://u.s.kqed.net/2014/02/27/treasureislandcrop.jpg

I only named the short Terminal Illness because I planned on a main character getting infected, but it just never happened, so the title doesn't make sense. Another reason I changed it is because a shorter title looked better for this particular cover, lol. Like I said, it's just a random concept thing I made when I was bored.

Oh, I thought it was called Terminal Illness because Jhonny has cancer.

That would make sense if the cancer was actually mentioned in Terminal Illness, but it wasn't a story element until Lingering Nightmare, which takes place years and years later.

It could be justified that at the time Jhonny is a sick **** mentally. Then further as a sort of foreshadowing to him being a sick **** physically later on when he gets it all together mentally.

I like that analysis. It has more to it than a generic-ass generic title like the one on the concept cover.
