Still working on the final draft of my Sci-Fi-Rom, although I have made wonderful progress on my query letter and synopsis. Writing is a long process. Sometimes it hedges into geophysical time. This is my P2PC eon. Or is it a mere epoch?
Progress: The twists I added to the conclusion have met my critter's approval with flying colors. Ahhh, vindication. The tie-in to the previous story line was well-received. Although I was biting my nails that the twist in the final pages took the story too deep into the shades of darkness, it appeared to do the exact thing it was engineered to do--ramp up tension in the climax. My scheming appears to have worked well. Yea! :)
Why do I always talk of P2PC in vague terms? I don't want to give away some of the secrets of what may be future surprises for my readers. Unlike published authors, especially those writing series or sequels, my work isn't out there in published format for the world to see so the characters are unknown entities and this universe waits to be explored. When (*thinking positive thoughts*) P2PC is published, I'll have tons of cutting room material, character and elements to discuss (if my publisher says it's okay, of course).
Meanwhile, the unveiling must wait. (And it's difficult finding a tarp large enough to cover half a galaxy, let me tell ya.) :)
I'll be back soon with another update.
