Honestly, it's getting to the point that if or when I get an acceptance, I don't know if I will be happy about it. Relieved, maybe.
Bad side, the number of agents in my list is dwindling fast. So I should add more.
Here's the question: What would be the definition of Gay Lit?
The reason I ask is that one of the major characters is gay. It does play a major part of the plot. I never actively pursued agents of that genre.
Why not? That's harder to say. The main reason, I never thought of it. The character that is gay, that came out in the writing and really brought some points together after it did. It's not a big deal to the people close to him (except for one, and its a bit ironic when you read it).
Also, I don't want people to focus in on it. For me, being gay for him was just like the piper knowing everyone. It was part of their character. Nothing big, when I wrote it.
But I have had some people tell me to send it out, because he is one of the heroes of the story. I can see the reasoning.
Readers more familiar with the genre, what do you think?
