Agent Day One: "Do your best to fall within the range of normalcy."

I'm on page 41 of my "how to land an agent" book.  So far, so good.  I know why I need one.  After over 20 years, three manuscripts and several anthologies, I am familiar with the practice and point of not being read.

I have two long novels (A Woman's Body Was Found There and California Wasn't Good For Us) and was tired of rejections pointing to the length of my work as a marketing problem (who reads long novels), so I set out to write a short one.  It turns out my 143 page Urban Nizhóní is 57 pages too short.  I should "Do your best to fall within the range of normalcy."

Falling in the range of normalcy is not my strength and there is very little I am willing to do to change that.  Anyone who has read any of my work knows that much.

Yeigo (Yéego).  Harder.  Give it strength.
