The Lost Prologue…

Before submitting the manuscript for ‘Provider Prime’ to literary agents and publishers, I was undecided about whether to include a prologue. After some intensive research it became apparent that agents in particular dislike the notion of a prologue intensely, especially if it is essentially nothing more than an information dump…

I decided not to include it in the submitted manuscripts or in the finished work as published. When housekeeping some files on my PC the other day I read it through again and quite enjoyed it! I then thought maybe it would be a good idea to include it in the blog and let readers decide for themselves whether it helps or hinders their understanding of the narrative. It does give a little more background into Delere Secos and the Latere Volgis in particular. There are no spoilers as far as I can judge and if you’ve been bold enough to read Provider Prime already, it may tempt you with a little more ‘future history’ – the Prologue is written from a vantage point several decades past the events of the novel itself.
