I also talked to Tom Doherty, the publisher at Tor, about something else altogether. You guys know the Jacqueline Carey stuff, the Kushiel books? Extremely beautiful woman geisha-type (not actually Asian, more French, but that kind of attitude towards prostitutes) protagonist, high fantasy culture with lots of politics, and she's a masochist to boot, and involved with her gods -- kind of a cross between Laurel K. Hamilton's faerie princess books and Janny Wurts's Empire trilogy, maybe? This is hard to describe. Not quite actual erotica, but closer to that than romance, but really just mostly fantasy, woman-centered, fair bit of sex, but not in a lot of detail. Lush. Sensual. Complex interpersonal power dynamics, both in bed and out of it.
The reason I'm trying so hard to describe it is that Tom would strongly like to see more of it (I gather Carey's stuff is selling quite well). Specifically, if I can find more, he'd be interested in having me edit it. I'd be interested in editing it. A lot. I could use the work, and I'm addicted to reading this stuff. So I suppose you can consider this something of an open call for synopses of such books. To be followed by three chapters at request, to be followed by entire manuscript at request. I'm going to keep this all informal, because after all, technically, I'm not a Tor editor yet. Only if I find a book Tom actually wants to buy. :-)
So if you have such a 1-3 page synopsis, or want to take a stab at coming up with one, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org, with the SUBJECT line: TOR Synopsis -- [insert title]. We'll see what happens. Spread the word if you like.
