The Joy of Novellas

What I’m writing…

For the past two months, I’ve been working on writing more short romances. The first one is a modern romance with magical elements. It quickly grew beyond my early estimate of about 20,000 words which would have been twice as long as Better Latte Than Never. Now it’s hanging somewhere above 30k, and I have a second piece around the same length that will pair up with the first for a novella length series. I’m so excited about this series and I can’t wait to share it!

I’m really growing to love the shorter formats. This includes books in novella and novelette lengths. It is easier to plot and write, and it happens fast enough that I don’t get bogged down by too many plot bunnies. It allows me to get through more books both with writing and reading. And that means more happily-ever-afters for everyone!

What I’m reading…

Right now, I’m reading the ARC of One Week in Hawaii, by these lovely ladies and really enjoying myself. That comes out May 19, but you can get One Week in Wyoming in the meantime if you don’t want to wait.

Roane Publishing also has more anthologies like Accidental Valentine. Check them out if you are looking for more to read in shorter sittings.
