Re: How did you decide the genre?

Yeah, classification is lame, but it IS required... the book HAS to be placed somewhere in the store, right?

Paranormal YA romance sounds fine to me as a genre! "Sophisticated paranormal romance" doesn't.

Re: Lost - Possible Spoilers!

They'll have a lot to answer for in 2 hours on Sunday, but like Nathan said, I think J.J. Abrams might have to disappoint us for the first time, with semantics and half-baked answers.

I'm sure we'll have plenty of time to whine if we aren't happy after the finale :)

Re: TRINITY, a novel (#3, revised)

A researcher trying to find the cure for cancer thinks he found the cure for cancer in/similar to Mayan blood. Mayans, at least some of them, then steal his research, destroy his lab, and kill his fiancee because they believe his research on their virus can tell them what caused their wipeout in th...

Re: TRINITY, a novel (#3, revised)

Doesn't plunder mean "to take by force or wrongfully"? So a plundered lab would mean someone WANTS his research for themselves, not destroy it? Or did I misinterpret what a word means again? I tried hinting at how the research would change the fate of a conflict, but it took too long. His research i...

Re: TRINITY, a novel

I think I wanted to stubbornly stay attached to the original form of the query because I'd worked so hard on it, but I realized I worked hard on the same variation, just with a slightly different flavor.

I'll get back to brainstorming and post a new one when I feel ready :)

Thanks!
