Short Story: Eternity's Ark

Post by JL Zenor » Tue Dec 15, 2015 4:18 am

Title: Eternity's Mind
Length, Draft and Language: ~4,000 words, third draft, English
Brief Summary: A zookeeper on a space ship has to defend a creature he fears from aliens who want to steal it.
Sub Genre & Keywords: Sci-Fi
Known Issues: None right now, but I may update this as I finish the first editing pass
Critique Requested: I want to make sure the story flows well and that the character is someone the reader cares about.
Critique Tolerance: Bring it! :D
Experience & Goals: This is my third short story that I'm aiming to publish. This has to be in to the publisher by the end of January to get included in the Sidekicks anthology, and I want time to be able to change it if the publisher has suggestions for me. So the earlier I get this back the better.
Method of Communication: Email. You can give your thoughts in a list in the email, or as notes in the file.

Send it my way if you can get it to me before the 22nd. (I'll have no internet in Delta.) I'd be able to get it back to you by Dec 30th. I think you have my email. :D
