Thanks so much to everyone who commented on my last post and helped me choose a RITA category for The Firebird. I was glad to see I'm not the only one who finds it difficult to figure out just where that book belongs!
But it was great to read your comments and your reasoning. I've left the comments open, but the entries for the contest start today, so in keeping with the two-to-one majority of your votes, I'll be entering The Firebird in the Paranormal Romance category, where the guidelines are as follows:
Novels in which the future, a fantasy world or paranormal elements are an integral part of the plot. In this category, the love story is the main focus of the novel, a futuristic, fantasy or paranormal element is blended with the love story, and the resolution of the romance is emotionally satisfying and optimistic.
Thanks again for giving time and thought to this. We'll see how my mutt of a book mixes in with the Purebreds :-).
