Mike, sorry bu t i really liked Mike Donald’s SciFi thriller, and though UPLOAD looks promising, i think there’s only room for one SciFi themed, in the spirit of conveying our syndicate’s true genre.
Cheers all! thanks for the help.
Nope didn’t get the bell nor the Email this time :(
You’ve earned $10.00 in new credits on Inkshares! This money can be used to purchase any of our books. Make sure you claim each credit so you can put it to use. Here’s why we thought we’d throw some money your way:
Mike Donald clicked a link you shared and ordered BOOK TITLE on Inkshares. Keep on sharing and help turn this book into a best-seller!
I GOT THIS: Mike,
We’ve got you down as a Reader of BOOK TITLE We’re processing your order now, and if a funding goal isn’t met by Jul 11, 2016, we’ll issue a refund the next business day.
As a reminder, you’ll be getting: An ebook, access to drafts and updates from the author.
Inkshares has also gave NAME a $10.00 credit because you were referred by that person.
BUT THE AUTHOR OBVIOUSLY DIDN’T GET ANY CREDIT. So, despite what you may or may not hear...the site is buggy as hell.
My fellow Thriller Night Syndicate members, I appreciate your biographies. I live in Rochester NY where I teach Anatomy & Physiology at a local University. My children are all in college now and their growth has allowed me time to delve more seriously into the creative writing I have done all my life. I am impressed with the authors listed as your favorites in all your pieces but I will openly admit that my writing is influenced by films as well as novels, action-adventure films to be specific. Movies like the Jason Bourne series, Mission Impossible, and of course James Bond have all helped me form the plots and characters within my stories. I enjoy similar television series, 24, Alias, Nikita, Person of Interest, Sons of Anarchy. I enjoy stories where the characters are pinned against circumstances from which they must make a decision to act in a manner that is often violent to resolve their situations. The best plots involve a big problem, like saving a business, a family a community or the world with the infusion of more intimate personal problems, the safety of a loved one, a valuable cherished object or a personal secret. I like dialogue that is crisp and clear yet also nuanced and thought provoking. I like action that is purposeful and essential to moving the story forward not just used to fill time and space. I like secret’s that unfold slowly and only after the reveal do the clues, which were there all the time, make sense from a changed perspective. I like to see the downtrodden rise and the mighty fall with neither of those trips being easy or easily accepted and understood by characters that never saw the approach of their changed predicaments.
Novelists that have inspired my writing include Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, Tom Clancy, Raymond Benson and a special acknowledgment to Mark Greaney whose Gray Man series helped me find my character’s voice.
My novel, Tears of the Assassin, will be coming forward as a draft very soon and I’ll be very grateful for your time and energy spent reading the chapters. I benefit from critical remarks. I have found the best editors, are frank about what they didn’t like or found confusing. Their honest assessment helps me see my writing through the reader’s eye. With a new perspective I can adjust passages, wording and whole sections to better convey the story. Editing is the key to good writing. As an author I strive to write from my imagination while seeing the story from the reader’s eye. I look forward to sharing this experience with you. Thank you.
My vote would be Transilience this month because the story seems well developed, has an interesting premise (detective on Mars, nice genre split) and a limited amount of time left. Next month I'd do Hesse's Equipment because it's a really interesting premise that has strong potential and I like the opening. Both are strong examples of thriller. The only reason I picked Transilience is because Hesse's book has a longer funding period and I think we could do it next month (and should since he's a member, I really do agree with endorsing our stuff).
I'm less interested in endorsing Piper's story only because it feels a lot more like SciFi and that's well covered on Inkshares IMO.
