If this is a good definition (from paul_m_jessup) of urban fantasy (and I think it IS):

Urban Fantasy currently has a template, and currently holds the big blockbusters. This time it's young women (strong) fighting monsters, and romantic/sexual subplots. The young woman is Urban Fantasy’s Chosen One.

Then why doesn't CAMILLE'S TRAVELS ring a bell with any other agents? It fits the mold exactly, even with the romantic subplot. Sigh.

I am also thinking of pulling the demon-conjuring scene in MIRANDA'S RIGHTS (the one in which Miranda's nemesis makes the fatal mistake of not bidding peace between them so mote it be, and thus the demon plans to zap her next time) out of the middle and making it a prologue. Hate to do it, because so many people advise against prologues that are out of chronological order and not from the POV of the heroine and are SO TANTALIZING. But maybe it would give people the idea that THIS IS FANTASY and WILL HAVE FANTASTICAL TROPES somewhat earlier. Hmm.

What, you have never seen such a scene? )
