So, instead of stubbornly continuing to subject myself to the query, partial, full, six-months from start to finish rejection dance I've been doing, I've concluded that for whatever reason, DO-OVER just doesn't do it. In another time, perhaps it could have. In 2009, no.
I've started a major rewrite to turn it into a (don't gag) romance. That's one category that consistently sells more books than any other. Escapism, anyone? I've read enough romances to become familiar with the genre's required elements and I'll see whether mine can fly or crashes and burns. Regardless, I'm happy to be back in Alex and Diego's world. I missed them.
