I'm polishing up an old novel. A generous friend just read the manuscript and pointed out inconsistencies and a few out-of-order scenes that I'm in the process of fixing. The story has been essentially complete since the 1990s and once had an agent but not a publisher. One small publisher did say he wanted it, then went out of business instead. After that, one thing led to another--you know how it goes--and for a long time I'd largely forgotten about the project. So I'm going to self-publish it soon. You could call it an ethnic murder mystery, since the protagonist is a Cambodian homicide cop. So whatever else readers might say about it, they're not likely to call it trite.
