A Letter from the Navigator Council reads...
Hey everyone, things are wrapping up here and I wanted to send out a final thank you and postmortem message on the contest and Stellar Drift.
Going into this I didn’t think I would get as much response as it did, and I took a crack thinking ’why not?’ It was great to see the support from everyone and the book garnered more pre-orders than I figured. Thanks to everyone who chipped in, the book hit the top 5 spots pretty earlier, but there were some strong contenders and unfortunately it didn’t make it into those top 3 spots. The whole thing has been a good dry run on marketing and networking within this space and it certainly won’t be the last time you have to put up with me hawking my material all over the place...
For Stellar Drift, the plan going forward looks like this- I’m wrapping up some final details on it now, winding down the chapters I have and picking at edits here and there. The entire manuscript is going to be sealed away into a drawer somewhere where it will cook for a few months in my head. It will definitely rise again, I am way too caught up in the characters and setting to ever let it go. At that time I’ll put on another coat of paint, maybe fix up the trimmings and do some reshingling. From there I’ll be querying it around to some agents and hopefully land who one is interested enough to get it to market. So you certainly haven’t seen the last of this ever evolving /thing/.
As for now, if you’re interested in hearing about it again, or checking out some of my other work coming out in the next few months, you can follow me on these accounts:

And check out my overall portfolio here: https://arstp.com/about/
What you can expect to see from me in the coming months:
-zine publication ripe with short fiction and some visual art
-short fiction publication in magazines, I have a few pieces being shopped around right now
-other smaller projects that will pop up here and there in various forms, most of which will probably be promoted through the twitter account
That’s what I got for now. Thank you so, so much again to everyone who chipped in, I do believe you’ll be receiving a refund as Stellar Drift fades from his site.
As always, if you are another writer and want to connect, swap work, and sharp advice, feel free to drop me a line on any of the above accounts.
See you soon . . .
