A reference, of course, to the old Eagles' song, Lyin' Eyes.
My novel on submission (through a reputable agent), a PI novel, has gotten nothing but rejections so far. Kind words from the editors, but rejections nonetheless.
My questions to Crimespacers: Does the fact that my main character is a private investigator severly hinder my chances of getting published? Is the private eye essentially dead in the current publishing world? Would I be better off changing the character's occupation, calling him something else?
My agent still (very much) believes in the book, but I'm kinda freaking at these initial rejections.
