November Signature Feature: Circumnavigation By C James


Cia

665 views

This month we begin a brand new feature to promote our Signature Authors. Instead of the computer background each month, we're going to promote the featured Signature author's story with an ad banner that will run in Stories. I'm also adding a banner that works for personal signatures on the site for the authors and their fans to use to help promote their feature! This month, we start off with C James!

Length: 1,082,090

 

Description: Trevor, through little fault of his own, finds himself with few choices. Desperate and hunted, he decides that his best chance is to head out to sea on his boat, for a circumnavigation of the Earth. His boat, Atlantis, is a fifty-five foot cruising catamaran, bequeathed to him by his mother prior to her mysterious disappearance. Come along for the ride and explore with Trevor, as he discovers many things, not the least of which is himself.

 

Story Reviews:
Jess 30519 says... What an amazing adventure! What a great story! It is wonderful how you have managed to maintain the pace and energy throughout all 158 chapters. And I cannot imagine how many hours you must have spent in researching so many details, scientific, geographic, nautical and all the other aspects that make this such a compelling piece of writing. I have been a sailor all of my life, owning and chartering mostly monohulls but an occasional multihull, and at no time while reading "Circumnavigation" did I encounter a wrong note or false premise. Amazing!

 

Thank you so very much for writing this story! I thoroughly enjoyed it and am kicking myself for putting off reading it for so long, but I'm glad I did wait for a time when I was able to enjoy it properly. Thanks again!

 

Miles Long says... I had to thank you C James one last time for such a thrilling adventure ride. This was my second read, I enjoyed it so much the first time I couldn't stop to comment (it was too damn compelling) but I promised myself that I would go back, because a story this well thought out and researched deserves reviews aplenty and all the likes GA will allow me :lol:. Thanks again to you and your team. :2thumbs:

 

Melethen says... I am terribly sorry it took me so long to read this wonderful, suspense filled story. For several months I have been addicted to it and finally finished it today!

 

Thanks for spinning this tale and sharing it with us. I know I am rather late since the story was written several years ago, but for some reason I put off reading it until now,
I really can't thank you enough. :worship:

 

NK says... I have read, and re-read all of your stories. I have enjoyed each one, but Circumnavigation is the best (in my not so humble opinion). I hope that you will continue to write, so that your readers can continue to enjoy your work!!

 

Sandrewn says... CJames
From the beginning to the end. Thank you ever so much.

Great story! One of the first ones I read when I came to GA. I'll admit one of the characters frustrated me to no end, and I kept hoping she'd be killed off. The suspense had me staying up later that planned a few nights, so I could read more. The descriptions of places visited left me wanting to pack my bags. Anyone who's spent anytime aboard a sailboat will fall in love with Trevor's adventures.

Er...the length is wrong. You've listed the views, not the words.

 

I did wonder when I saw that number...

I've read Circumnavigation too, and it's EPIC !

This story was a wondrous ordeal for me. It put me through the wringer, and I went gladly. I have so much respect for the supreme effort it must have taken. I would love to make another comment, but it would be a spoiler. I bow to the writer of such a tremendous work.

Definitely one of the Greatest feats of GA writing, it will take you several months to go through it, so if you are like me and stuck in the snowbound in the winter, open it up and grab some hot cocoa.

Several months?? Don't we want everyone to read it by the weekend and do a book report :P

 

This story is definitely a ride. One of my favourite CJames stories. The fact that CJ posted this story weekly over what I believe was over 3 years, is a testament of the dedication he put into this story. Definitely worth every moment spent reading it.

I agree that this epic rang true as a sailor and in every other way. 

 

Wish this attention would bring the Goat back to the herd.

It would be so cool to meet him :) I've already read Circumnavigation and I've become a fan of his.

      Mark Arbour's story, Odyssey, was Monday's Signature Feature. Did you grab your copy of the signature banner so you can share your love for Mark's story? If not, you can do that here! Today we're featuring a great excerpt from the story that shares Mark's great ability to create a vivid world for Mark's main character in the series, George Granger, to explore. Why did Mark pick this story to feature?
       
      Mark says:
      My favorite story is: Odyssey, from the Bridgemont series. I'm really proud of that one because of all the meticulous research I had to do, and how carefully I had to plot out the timeline. I had to get my hero from England, around the world via Indonesia and India, and to Egypt in time for the Battle of the Nile, all of this in 1798. I know CAP is more popular, but that story is my best effort

      Valkyrie's story, Alex's Legacy, was Monday's Signature Feature. Did you grab your copy of the signature banner so you can share your love for Valkyrie's story? If not, you can do that here! Today we're featuring her chosen excerpt.
       
      Valkyrie says: This story started as my response to Prompt 305, although the characters existed before I wrote the prompt. Even though they were created as peripheral characters in another story, they captured my heart, and I wanted to learn their whole story. There's a tie-in to The Hollow Hills, and anyone who can find it earns a gold star. lol I picked this excerpt because it shows the connection between Sam and Alex. It also shows Alex's playful side and the romanticism that's a main feature of the story.

      Cynus's story "From the Cup of the Worthless" was Monday's Signature Feature. Did you grab your copy of the signature banner so you can share your love for Cynus's story? If not, you can do that here! Today we're featuring his chosen excerpt.
       
      Cynus says: I chose this excerpt from chapter 10 for a number of reasons. It not only offers a view at the high stakes involved in this organized crime story, but it also shows a number of different connections between the characters, most importantly the connections between Nobuyuki and Viktor, between Nobuyuki and Masahiro (Nobuyuki's father), and the connection between Masahiro and Daisuke (Masahiro's second-in-command). It also offers a view of things to come, but without spoiling the ending, as this scene comes from just before the midpoint in the novel.

      Mann Ramblings' story, So Little Magic Left, was Monday's Signature Feature. Did you grab your copy of the signature banner so you can share your love for Mann's story? If not, you can do that here! Today we're featuring his chosen excerpt.
       
      Mann Ramblings says: I chose this scene because it sets the stage for a change in Rath and Shawn's roles, blurring them and sending them on a new direction.

      Cassie Q's story, Geeks, was Monday's Signature Feature. Did you grab your copy of the signature banner so you can share your love for Cassie's story? If not, you can do that here! Today we're featuring her chosen excerpt.
       
      Cassie says... I like the excerpt because really shows what kind of person Mikeal is like, how he has to think about things for a long time and how something as simple as a kiss can throw him for a loop. It shows how attracted he is to the other boy, even though he's afraid to admit it. One of the things about the story that I like so much is how much Mikeal starts to come out of his shell and becomes more confident when he and the green haired boy (his name is Adam) start to date and fall in love.
