Lots of great news!
The Seventh Aspect is now an Inkshares staff pick! It’s also received a recommendation from none other than our fearless leader, and Inkshares CEO Jeremy Thomas! (I certainly didn’t see that one coming). To say I am humbled and grateful is an understatement.
I’d just finished another big round of edits on the posted chapters right before he sent his recommendation. So keeping your drafts updated and improved pays, folks. You never know who is lurking.
In honor of this fun occasion:
1. I have a long professional history in showbiz, so I’m a sucker for dream casts. I’ve decided to share my dream cast for the main characters in chapters 1 and 2. Here’s the kicker: I’m not posting their character names. So that means you’ll have to read to figure out who’s who.
2. There’s a reference to an infamous 70’s horror film in chapter 1. Our main extraterrestrial character has a thing for human sci-fi and horror media. So bonus points if you catch it and know what it is. It’s funny, I promise. Similar funky references will be sprinkled throughout the story.
Two more chapters are on the way. You’ll get to meet more of our alien researchers, and maybe even travel to another dimension. Mmmm....dimensions....
As always, if you like what you read, please leave a comment or review. Thanks so much again for your interest. It means a lot.
I’ve revised the first two available chapters! I’ve added some details and passages that provide a little more context for what is going on, and tweaked several things. I was fortunate enough to get some wonderfully constructive feedback from both DraftShares and some offline readers that have really helped. Please take a look and share your thoughts if you feel so inclined. I highly value all of your opinions and impressions – good or bad.
The Seventh Aspect is at almost 100 followers! If you like what you read, please share, recommend, or leave a review. I’ll be posting the next two chapters soon. Thanks so much for your interest. I really appreciate it.
Howdy Again All!

Holy Crap! I got my first review - and it’s a good one! I’ve revised the synopsis and ‘About the Book’ sections. And the first two chapters are up for critique as a part of DraftShares. So please have a look and share your thoughts. If you don’t, the Men in Black might show up at your door… with pie. But is the pie a lie?
Thank you so much for your interest in my book. The wait is over! I’ve posted the first two chapters! The Seventh Aspect is being reviewed as a part of DraftShares. So when you have the time, please have a read and let me know what you think. I would really appreciate it. Leaving feedback for authors on their Inkshares drafts can get you entered into a raffle for all kinds of fun prizes. I’m looking forward to hearing all of your thoughts - good or bad. Don’t worry. I’m a big boy. I can take it...I think. Thanks again for your interest.

Thank you so much for taking an interest in my idea. I have posted a synopsis! I’m in the process of writing, and will be sharing the first chapter soon. This is the first time I’m sharing details about the book with the “outside world.” I would love to get your feedback and first impressions. So, if you feel so inclined, please take a moment and share your thoughts in the comments. Thanks again.
