I have currently finished writing my first novel titled 'Timelines in the Sand'. It is a romantic fiction written in English, set in Malaysia. Right now, the novel stands at 37 chapters and 136,000 words, and has been self edited five times.
My next step is to get a professional editor to go through the novel and secure a publisher to help me with my effort to self publish the book. All funding will be used to pay for the editing process, cover design, eBook setup, printing, marketing and other costs that may incur in the process of realizing my lifelong dream to become a published author.
Who am I?
My name is Clarence Kuna. I am currently involved in the performing arts industry in Malaysia, and has appeared in numerous theater, TV and movie projects. I am also teaching speech and drama to some international schools and drama clubs around Kuala Lumpur. Funding is very limited for me and it has been a struggle, but i still manage to make time to get this book done and it has been a great pleasure to go through this journey, and I would really love to share this journey of mine, and the story that I've written to the masses.
Here's a synopsis of the novel:
"Hope's a miserable thing, but it's still hope." - Maria
A string of strange and intense circumstances brought Sal and Maria together, and though Sal's cold and broody demeanor was a tough hide at first, Maria managed to thaw his icy heart in the three days they spent together. Chemistry was set and sparks flew all over, but there are things behind their life curtains that they haven't revealed to each other, and once the curtains are drawn, there's no turning back. How will it change their view and perspective on each other? And if they have the chance to go back and change everything, will it make a difference?
"You end up loving a girl, and then what? You people always have difficulties with choosing the right attire for a simple evening out, and none lasts at least 6 months on the shoe rack. Economic wise, Vincci is having a gala time, but I’d be damned if I ever wanted someone who likes pink high heels but decides that she likes the black better and then grows to an indecisive decision of choosing both and ends up buying none because Hush Puppies next door is having a sale." - Sal
