About This Club

A fan club for Stellar to chat about his stories


Fan Club
  1. What's new in this club
  2. Your stories are excellent and most of are waiting for the final series. Don’t delay, please.
  3. Many agree that 2020 will go down as the year from hell. Though tough to find the good within, we will endure what remains; and then upon reflection, I feel we will see the many outgrowths from challenges answered. I too have experienced the funk of the Covid confines but we are emerging as more is understood and as people are now demanding self determination. Hang in their mate, I suspect for many your works are too complex and intimidating to freely express comments with public confidence or without the fear of embarrassment from the many nuggets possibly missed or not yet connected;
  4. Just an update on what's going on with this. Some of you might be wondering why literally nothing has happened regarding the third book in 2020. The only mention of it has been this status update back in August. So, I'd certainly forgive you for wanting to know what's going on. Well, to put it bluntly, I'm not very happy -- for several reasons. So, I should probably be clear about this, as it's a mixture of stuff, but ... fair warning: Because I don't want this thread to be about my personal feelings and situation, I'm going to put it in a spoiler tag below. You can read more if
  5. It is done! Hidden Sunlight has been refined and given a fresh coat of quantum paint, and with this fairly time-consuming task completed -- subtle though the changes may be to some -- the author can rest easy without the nagging perfectionist impulses occupying his brain. With regard to the above quote, I'll make a decision on the sequel in the next day or two.
  6. No, not for me. I had planned to reread the series when I saw you were working on book 3. This is just a good way to get reacquainted with the characters.
  7. You might be surprised how small changes can alter the impact and tone of a scene, and the additive effect of a lot of such small things is where the difference in quality comes from. While it may not be obvious to some, from the author's standpoint, there are parts early on in Hidden Sunlight that make me cringe because of how I wrote them. Any time I went back to review the text for whatever reason I'd notice it, and immediately think 'I need to do something about this.' But really, do I need a ploy to make you get into it again?
  8. I'm so glad: Hidden sunlight was really sub-par in terms of style... NOT !! What on Lucere do you expect to improve?? I know, I know... the author is always right but is this just a ploy to make us re-read HS again ? 😉 And really don't worry about the notifications Keep up the good work. Happy to hear that you have it all planned out.
  9. Thank you very much for the warning, and it will be good for me too. I had decided to reread the first two books, and this way, I can read the first one again as you post the revisions.
  10. I have a PSA for any readers who follow my science fiction series. So, as a part of the preparation for Lucid Truth, I want the first two books of the trilogy to be presented at a standard of the highest quality. My readership, on seeing such a statement, might very well pose the question: are these books not already of sufficient excellence for your liking, Stellar? Well, yes, but also ... no. Though Veil of Shadow is, generally speaking, a book that I am mostly satisfied with, the same cannot be said of the first. In a nutshell, my style had matured a lot by the time I starte
  11. Thank you for such a wonderful compliment! I promise I will try my best to give a worthy ending to the trilogy.
  12. I have been reading the first 2 stories over the past few years (life gets in the way!). The silver lining to the current lockdown business has meant I finally have the opportunity to (sadly) finish your story, and what an amazing story! Hand on heart my favourite story I've ever read. Fantasy, super powers, space, incredible characters, action, and love. AMAZBALLs! So looking forward to this 3rd installment! Thank you for giving us this joy to read. xo
  13. I'm glad about your decision. Your stories are well worth the wait anyway
  14. Currently, this thread is purely informational; to state the book's title, and that I am beginning work on it. It will be some time before you see the first chapter posted, but I wanted readers to know that it is happening and is out of the theoretical phase and into the planning phase. Simply put, I am now doing something about it actively, and make no mistake, this will be a major exercise for me as there is a lot that I need to conceptualise and organise for this final part of the saga. In the broadest possible manner and without any kind of spoiler, you can expect to see these things
  15. Here we come to it, at last. This is the Official Discussion Thread for Lucid Truth, the sequel to Veil of Shadow and Hidden Sunlight, and the series ending to the Aspects of Dawn trilogy.
  16. It's been three months since the poll went up, so I am using the current results as a decision, as it constitutes a majority opinion of those readers that wanted to express one. For further information on what this will entail, please check the new forum post about the upcoming book.
  17. Just found the "Club", TY. I've voted (I would have many, many times if I could!), so to paraphrase Oliver in "Oliver Twist"... Please sir... may we have some more!?..." Norrin.
  18. I voted for the third book in the Hidden Sunlight/Veil of Shadow series. Gonna have to reread those stories again.
  19. As I note above, I don't have a preference, or I would have made the decision myself already. Asking me to go with my passion is like asking a parent which child is their favourite. I don't have one and I don't intend to choose at this time.
  20. Thank you, though it needs to be said that if I had a strong opinion in the first place, then I never would have posed the question and just chosen something myself. It makes little difference to me which order I write them in -- I know what's going to happen in both series regardless -- which is why it came to a poll of readers to find out the popular view.
  21. While I have a deep appreciation for the interest in what the readers want, I also believe authors need to follow their own inspiration first. Your strength and comfort of creativity may be neutral between the two stories, but if not, I encourage you to go first with your passion; for there is where I think you’ll flourish without fatigue. That said, I must say Spirit of Fire is what holds my interest more at this time. In all fairness, I have just re-read both stories from beginning to end of posts; a welcomed task, for these stories are of my favorites of all the stories I have read, an
  22. I went with Veil of Shadow, more because I think you might need to let your muses marinate on just how to continue, or finish, Spirit of Fire. That said, I truly believe you should work on what you feel is trying to come out.
  23. I voted for Veil of shadow, probably because more time was spent on character development with Shay than with Torsten, and that made him a more immediately likeable character. Also, it was the first story I read from you so there was an element of surprise and amazement about the plot and about your style which could not be as prevalent in a second story. That said, I will happily return to Spirit of Fire whenever you write the sequel
  24. One of the biggest questions that the sequel will address (whensoever it should be written) is how much of Araziah is still Araziah, and how much of his personality is divine and/or 'the mad god'. The two are melded -- permanently, I might add -- but what does that mean for who he is? I am genuinely curious how you did imagine the story ending. I'm sure most thought it was probably going to wrapped up nicely with the 'good guys' of the Order getting their victory and the war being 'won' in that fashion, but how did you think it would go? It's a little weird trying to undercut the mental i
  25. You are right, it was quite a draconic ride. It wasn't the ending I had imagined but it is full of promise for what is to come. The one aspect I cannot yet see is Araziah and Tosten's relationship in the future. Granted, many things may happen when magic is thrown in the mix, but Araziah's new status seems to complicate matters quite a bit. On to vote for what you should write next.
  26. I never managed to care about the characters in Spirit of Fire (at least the main character and his long haired dragon "friend") and stopped reading it half way through for that reason. Instead I reread the Hidden Sunlight series, so I would Definitely like to see that continued (and concluded). I hope I am not alone here. I guess I would also read something else entirely from you, but it would be a bummer to have to wait another couple of years for the conclusion of the Hidden Sunlight series.
