The SPOTLIGHT IS ON “INSIDE ROOM 913!”
First, thank you
My latest book, Inside Room 913, is one of those odd books that are difficult to place in a specific genre. Some call it a mystery, some refer to it as a suspense novel, and others categorize it as crime-fiction. It is, however, none of those, not by the true definition anyway. Yet, the book has elements of each of these genres.
When the writing of the book began, I’d planned on a short suspense, a mini-mystery – a novella. I wanted a book that most people could read at one sitting. Less than one hundred pages was my goal. Then, as writers are sometimes known to do, I didn’t know where to stop and kept writing. The further I got into the story, the more I needed to tell.
By the time I’d finished the rough draft, it had grown to well over 200 pages – not exactly a mini-mystery. Then, the editing process started and the page count did come down,
eventually settling at 155 pages in the print version.
The point is, when writing, the book sometimes takes on a life of its own – at least it works that way for me. I’m never sure what’s going to happen or where we are going. Sometimes, I’m just as surprised as a reader by what unfolds. Which is probably why I ended up with a book that doesn’t quite fit into any genre! But for those who NEED to know a book’s genre, I’ve decided Inside Room 913 is a short, crime-fiction, mystery, suspense novel.
