A Curious Orb

A year after I began, the first draft of – A Curious Orb – is finally complete. It is a historically-based Science Fiction story of a boy who inherits an ancient artifact on his eighteeth birthday. For generations the orb has been passed down from generation to generation. Considered a curiosity, the four inch silver sphere has never done more than open like a flower to present a blue button, which when pressed does nothing–until Daniel.

The journey he is sent on defies distance and time, placing him smack in the middle of a bronze-age revolution. The people he meets and the troubles he helps them solve will change his life more than he could ever have imagined.

I am very proud of this book, my seventh attempt at creating a story any sci-fi fan can enjoy. Editing is in progress as well as the artwork needed for covers and promotion. The cover included in this post is the current iteration to date. I am not done yet, but I am so close – stay tuned.

Re-envisioning Christophers Journal

How do you make a story about a young man trapped on a deserted starship interesting? Whatever it takes.

I have given away hundreds of copies of this short story and received two reviews. So I asked myself why. I did everything I could to make the story hold a reader’s attention and still it appears I failed. My sister, who is an established author, read the story. She told me it was boring.

When there is one MC, and a ship, it’s difficult to make the tale memorable, so I did the only thing I could think of. Added another character. Have you ever tried to weave another character into an established book series? I have. It’s hurts the brain.

Completely revised, I am confident this story is a compelling prelude to the Al Clark Series. Included are four drawings to use as reference while reading the series.

Best of all, Al Clark-Christopher’s Journal is FREE almost everywhere!
