It's now gone off to my NY agent (the LA agency loves it as a possible
feature), and we will see what we will see.  It's a contemporary mystery/noire
thriller with supernatural overtones, set in LA, and weighs in at just under
100,000 words.  With luck, we can get this thing out by the Fall, assuming the
planned auction goes well.>>

YIPPEE!!!!!  'Scuse the exuberance, but it's nice to hear that there'll be
something new in print.  I've learned that I want paper reading material that I
can refer back to at will.  Must be why I've begun collecting scripts whenever

Is there a working title?  And how do auctions work?

Thanks for the good news!

Yes, but until the book is sold I'm keeping the title under wraps.  It's not
that it's particularly special, it's just a good title.

In an auction, the book goes out to X number of publishers, who have until Y
date to respond with an offer.  Best offer gets it.
