I’ve slated another book for release this year. It’s currently in third draft, an enrichment draft where details will be fleshed out and the character’s arc enhanced. The current word count is 21,000, well into novella* territory, with about 80 pages of text, not counting front and back matter. The book has been workshop tested in first draft.
Synopsis: A timorous traveller finds himself in a strange and treacherous city without a map. He also discovers that his language school has instructed him in the wrong dialect for this city.
* For the curious, the definitions of fiction works are as follows:
Flash Fiction: up to 1,000 words
Short Stories: 3,500 to 7,500 words
Novelettes: 7,500 to 17,000 words
Novellas: 17,000 to 40,000 words
Novels: 40,000 or more words
