The first article in Ed Charlton’s column for IndieReader.
Before you have a printed book, you have a manuscript. These are different things, connected but distinct, like a butterfly and a caterpillar. Some indie authors get confused between the two. They have unrealistic expectations of their manuscript. They expect their caterpillar to fly.
Theo Kingman inherited a problem: great-uncle Teddy’s unpublished memoir of an impossible life in the fabulous place called Aleronde. What are Theo’s motives for selectively sending chapters to his childhood friend and publisher, Curt? Why does Curt find some of the descriptions so disturbingly familiar?
In copied letters, collected emails, office notes, and of course, the pages of Uncle Teddy’s own manuscript, Ed Charlton pieces together a tale of empire, conquest, slavery, betrayal, romance, adventure, and mystery. Is it speculative? Is it even fiction at all…?
The Problem with Uncle Teddy’s Memoir will be published later this year.
