"Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" is the story of a ship of Joquari merchants being attacked by a mysterious new enemy they start calling "Zokek" since zo kek is Joquari for "no faces." (The Zokek have faces, but hide their bodies entirely, including their faces.) It starts out a bit slowly, because life on Joquari ships is usually quite sedate, but once the action starts, oh boy! I didn't want to put it down! I hope any readers (like beta readers) will feel the same way. And all this takes place in the Mindeodean universe, a universe where there's lots and lots of planets with life, but humans seem to be the only sentient species (at least in our galaxy, anyway).
I am so stoked! I'm gonna start planning that new story idea.
