Completed final revision of “The Guarding,” the first sci-fi manuscript in my Revelation Trilogy. The final story synopsis is on my website under downloads. Starting my strategy to contact fiction agents interested in partnering with me in the long-term building of my franchise.
I have decided to tighten up my manuscript and increase story tension for this mystery-thriller-SF novel in the latest revision. My "trim-up" revision is currently underway and includes the addition of two characters (one major and one minor), as well as two more subplots while at the same time reducing text wherever possible.
My writing has been on hiatus due to two deaths in my family. However, I have still been actively adding ideas to my notebook, and I am once again at my writing desk daily. I am finishing a short story for submission to spring contests while I am also revising my novel manuscript. This manuscript is undergoing some serious changes with the addition of several colorful characters (both to help and hinder my protagonist) as well as additional subplots. At the same time I am tightening the text to increase the tension.
Just added another sci-fi short story entitled "Mirror, Mirror on the Wall" to the download page on my website (saclark.com). Let me know what you think about this one. Working on a third sci-fi short story for contest submission. SAC
