This is based loosely off of Saderan's tut, and I am encountering a few problems:

I used an outer glow layer style on my land layer to create the blue shelf, but for some reason this glow is leaving off some areas of the landmass such as the small island at the tip.

I was also wondering if you all had any thoughts or suggestions as to my placement of forests and grasslands, (this is assuming a weather pattern where the rainfall comes predominantly from the east, if that makes meteorological sense)

I will eventually put in rivers, I just wanted to address these issues first.

Thanks ahead of time for any feedback, I will post more as it develops!
