about me

I have the dream. Do I have the talent?

**NO SPAM PLEASE**

----------------------------------------
The first 15 chapters of my epic-length novel "Embrace of the Spiral Arms" are available here. These take the book to about the midpoint of the story and provide more than enough content to get a good understanding of its scope, characters, plots, and problems, etc.

I do not intend on uploading any of the book beyond these first 15 chapters, the rest will have to wait for publication. But, please, do not let that dissuade you from reading what is here and, if you should deem the work worthy of your support, helping me to get it on bookshelves everywhere.

I hope you enjoy it.

Embrace of the Spiral Arms

Scott Andersen

The man she loves is in sight far overhead, unreachable. The woman he loves is stranded below on an alien world, hunted.


On a lush, unexplored planet orbiting an isolated star midway between two arms of the Milky Way, two civilizations—one spiraling into revolution, the other tipping into the vortex of political intrigue—clash at the cusp of discovery. And they are not alone.

Above the new world, the man she loves is unreachable. Below, the woman he loves is hunted. To embrace again they must confront their remarkable reflections, choosing between trust and loyalty, hope and terror, and war and peace, where the domino of each personal decision carries sweeping consequences.

Hi Lenny, I read 1-3 and 10. The writing flows nicely. The writing could be tightened up some but most unedited works share that trait. The early character development is done particularly well and that will, of course, lend greater force to the way the characters evolve as the book progresses. A... view book

The book begins with a quote by Pablo Picasso. A more appropriate choice could not have been made. Here is a writer whose word strokes splash vivid color across the canvas of the page with imagery every bit as subtle and daring as a grandmaster's painting.

My 2nd review here on authonomy and I am going to use what I learned from my first to make this one as useful as I can, i.e. opening the book in two tabs so that I can comment while reading. My comments are simply how the work strikes me as a reader. I am by no means an expert in anything. My intent... view book
