Your book The Temporary Detective was made available to the public in April, 2012. How well has it been received by the public so far?
As my tags indicate, my book is a little bit of a hybrid. First and foremost, it is an amateur sleuth mystery. But the back story of Isobel trying to break into show business, which will continue through the series, is very important to me—and I believe it’s what makes the book different. The publishers who read it were confused by the additional elements (there’s also a hint of romance between Isobel and James). I can understand why it would be confusing for them marketing-wise. It’s been a challenge for me, too! But at the same time, I knew I wasn’t going to change the book. I also knew that readers would mind far less than publishers that it isn’t a pure genre mystery.
Be generous, share!
