How cool is it when all the words can line up into a nice run in a post without too much effort. And today is Locations lore day. And since one of the words is actually the name of one of my favorite clubs we’ll do that — Aspect.

Aspect is a dance club that features a bar, a multi-tiered dancefloor. It’s owned and operated by Maxwell Slattery. His best friend Andrew Morris aka Drew heads up the bar and has invested heavily in the club.

The club is is located in New York City in the Meatpacking District on West 16th Street between 8th and 9th Avenues. There are bars located in the vicinity in the real world, but Aspect is a purely made up bar.

Aspect has no real theme to it. There are are lots of purple and blue neon lights — the color scheme being purple blue and black. Now that we are talking about it, we see a galaxy painted on the ceiling and on the walls adding to the aesthetic.

There are some standing barstool tables, but it is first and foremost a dance club covering two floors. There is a stage where live performances play but usually is host to the DJ station. The layout of the dance floor around the stage allows for some cozy dance spots for intimate encounters. The coat room is a great place for those awkward introductions, or a distracted getaway.

Aspect shows up in the first book. As a teenager it was our go to club as they allowed in underage folks as long as you weren’t drinking which we weren’t. Just dancing. And it helps if you can persuade easily. Mia is very good at getting her way — not quite telepathic or empathic, but her gift is the ability to persuade others into doing things — even if you don’t want to. Which is probably why I was such a deviant — Sage too.

My name is Nox Sétanta. I am first and foremost a fictional character escaped from the mind of my creator AJ. In layman's terms I'm a magic wielding monster hunter born to my human mother and my Venatori father.

    1. It is. We have two other clubs with names that I’ve been too. One is near Aspect but we never see it in the story. At least not mine. If AJ writes Jaxen and Blake’s story you might get to see Flit. And then there is Frozen — which is a vampire bar in a made up city founded by vampires. Opps another one is Fangtasia — a rip off of the Sookie Stackhouse novels (or True Blood) which is also a vampire bar, that one you might see in a short story. Or other medium.

      1. honestly, that much doesn’t matter. I have 28 mysteries written out and they’re worthless to me. Focus on just one tale and market and publish that. Then build it book by book from there with your publisher. That way you’ll do well instead of wasting time.

      2. The problem is that AJ needs to write in order to not get bogged down with life. So we can’t just stop at one book. We have 5 in the hole that need editing. And that doesn’t include the 3 or 4 she’s written that won’t see publishing at all except maybe to a blog

      3. Oh, Nox. I’m sorry AJ is the same me. My poor sleuth Holly gave me a lot of love and friendship as we wrote her 28 mysteries. She got me through a lot of tough times and then I failed her by never managing to get her published.

        I hope AJ can find away to get you published beautifully, Nox. I’ll help if can.

      4. That’s great. I’ll happily read for AJ. Does she have a Beta reading questionnaire to hand out? Its helpful to focus readers attention on the things she’s wants answering. I can email her the one I have it helps.
