My agent (Tris) has suggested that better genres for Cooper's Moon and Blood Moon are Thriller and Crime. Thus the title for this blog. The issue of genre gets into the issue of the writing process as well. What it says about the process is something that I've discovered earlier: namely, that the process of writing is a fluid one. The genre drives the story.
As I am writing Blood Moon, the story line has changed several times. You're probably surprised at that. When you read a book, you don't think about the process that the author went through to create it. I never did. I have already dumped about 30 pages (at least) of Blood Moon and will probably dump some more. That's the bad news. The good news is I like the story more. Hope you do too.
I will be posting a new selection of Cooper's Moon in the next several days. So stay tuned for Cooper's latest Miami adventure. I'll look forward to your feedback.
Tris is sending out Cooper's Moon to more publishers shortly. Keeping my fingers crossed.
All the best,
