I'm about to plow through revisions to my next novel in the queue... my stand-alone literary novel. And rather than start by fully understanding what a literary novel is (because who really knows that anyway?) I'm learning by writing. But I do have a baseline.

DOGWALKERS is about a wealth disparity-based society, and the relationships between the people in that society. Poor VS Rich. Poor VS Poor. And Rich VS Rich.
