I have two big mainstream editors from different houses interested in Midnight Rain as a mainstream novel. I’ll need to propose changes along lines they have suggested and submit a fifteen-to-twenty-five page outline of the story as it would read when revised; that plus the current manuscript would give them enough to decide whether they wanted to buy or not.
I’m going to go for it. It is not — yet — a shot at the Big Time. But it is a shot at a shot a the Big Time, and I’d be a fool not to give it everything I’ve got.
