In my search for agents, I've been seeing a lot of, "...looking for stories that transcend their genre..." This is my first rodeo. I'm just trying to make sure my MC makes it out the front door without forgetting his pants. In fact, I'm not really sure what it means to "transcend a genre" much less how to do it. Guess that's why I haven't gotten any acceptance emails yet, lol. Seriously, though. Can anyone think of how a story transcends a genre?
