The Lipless Gods is the third novel I've written, or, finished; I'd be more apt to anoint it in those terms.
I like to think of writing in terms of finished or not-finished. If you added up all the unfinished projects, then I'd be somewhere around 10 or so novels. And if you counted the 2 versions of Lucid, I've finished 4 novels (the less said of novel number one, The Colonists, the better).
TLG is a crime novel. A rural setting. A big city mob gunman beaten and abandoned and blackmailed into helping a kid desperately seeking a vanished classmate.
Lucid went out to 100+ agents; no one bit. TLG went out to roundabout 90. 3 agents gave it the sniff test. 1 agent is still sniffing. In the interim, I'm all geared up to go the Smashwords route.
