I'm settled back in at home, mostly well-rested and back to my regular lunch-time writing hour. The opening scene of "Wholesale Goods" has been rewritten and I'm happy to say that there is only one instance of the word "was" in the narration. Only eight more scenes to edit and then I'm tempted to call it done and send it out.
I still don't have a market in mind for this. I should spend some research time on that. Given my confusion on sub-genre labels, I'm not quite sure what this would be classified as.
