I like novellas. Sometimes, I only have a limited time to read and I’m in the mood to finish a story. There are many Sunday mornings when I curl up with my Kindle and coffee and peruse the new novellas at Amazon.
I actually set out to write a few novellas on purpose because while some I’d read were wonderful, I was getting a lot of duds. I like a good, sexy story and so many were just… sex. I tend to like a story more if I feel an emotional attachment to the characters.
So for me, writing novellas is a challenge. It’s not easy to get a full story in 30k words, not easy to make a reader care for the characters.
Thing is, I love a challenge.
But for any readers who stumble upon KITHRA, REPLICANT, etc, and wish for longer work, I write that too. 😉 In fact, there will be a bit of news coming up about one of my longer works-which is a little over 100k. (It’s not an erotic romance, though.) I love delving into a longer story and building character growth as much as I love the challenge of shorter work. So, I will be writing some longer erotic books, too. Sometimes, a story has to be that way. For instance, CATALYST–the third Kithran Regenesis series– is already longer than the first two in the series.
Truth is, I like writing both.
Oh, there is news! The release date of REPLICANT is April 17th!
