Interesting: When I posted the deal to PM, seeing as how I never saw the novel as a mystery/crime project, I clicked "Debut" on Publishers Marketplace's drop-down menu under genre, where to put things, how to categorize the project, the deal. Funny, then, how THE PLUNDER ROOM wound up under "mystery/crime." That might be because Ruth Cavin, my fantastic editor at Thomas Dunne Books, is known for her work with mystery/crime novels, as is Thomas Dunne Books, where I'm tickled to feel so at home. And I've already gotten a couple of responses from the PM posting. Which is tickling, too. One from an agent, whom I happen to like. He even went so far as to comment that Ruth is fantastic, yet another reason to like this particular agent. Even though I still have no agent. And while agents do continue rejecting my work, which also seems to be neither a mystery nor a crime at this point, on the drop-down menu of Life, it's nevertheless pretty amusing.
