To Strebor Books International, they have a distributing arrangement with Simon and Schuster, so I hope like hell they'll ask for the full. I queried last month and got a 'The novel sounds interesting" response. They want ethnic characters, and they're a pioneer in street lit. My book would be more like Boondock Lit, it's laid in southern Arizona in Cochise County.

Regards,
Scott

Street Lit . . .
Strebor was founded by "Zane" a lady who wrote African-American erotica and found it so popular she started printing her own stories for friends. Then she started self-pubbing it and it took off big time. Then she founded Strebor and it did so well that Simon and Schuster tried to buy it, but settled for a distribution deal.

Regards,
Scott
