Good to go.

Got The Manic Pixie Dream Girl Murders back from Lara, my editor.

She was fine with it.  "A Duncan McGeary story, but with much more sex? What's not to like? :)"

She didn't have a problem with the sexual politics of it.

"And I didn't think the sex was gratuitous or overly explicit. It seemed just right to me in a book about succubae. (You might warn your fan base, though, in case some of them have more delicate sensibilities than I do. lol)"
I'm trying to figure out how to do that.  I thought of having a tagline of something like, "A Sexual Thriller," but I don't want to imply that it is porn, either. I've been getting comments about how my violence isn't over the top and that I don't use the "F" work too much, so this might be a bit of a changeup.
But it is what it is.  I went through her editing yesterday, and I think the book is more of less ready.  I want to go through Linda's beta-reading of the book, as well as what the writer's group suggested, but there are no big changes I think need be made.
It's ready to go. 
I'll polish it up over the next few days and offer it to Ragnarok and hope they can fit it in sometime before the end of the year.  
Good to go.
