Oh, you're back! Pretty cool stuff, huh?
Personally, one of the things I really wanted to sort out on this trip was the whole "where do the Women of Willow Bay go next" dilemma that has been haunting me for dang near a year. It's not that I don't have plenty of ideas, but I'd sorta gotten stuck on one of them and for some unknown reason was unable to release it. So, in addition to dealing with more life stuff than I've dealt with at one time in my whole life, I was spinning my metaphorical wheels as a writer.
Small Town Summer boxed set, it's great! And be sure to head over Amazon and pre-order her other one--A Heartwarming Christmas, which is a Christmas boxed set due out October 13. They are both fantastic examples of novellas that get the story told in fewer words than a full-on novel.
In the spirit of Liz's post yesterday, here's the question I'm putting out there to all of you: Full-length novels or novellas or hey, even short stories--do you have preference? Would you rather read short and quick or do you want to wallow and get deep into characters and story? And writers, talk to me--have you written novellas? How'd you like the process? Did you feel you got your story told in 40,000 words or less?
