Thinking I’ll write a Novella

What do you think? As Blood & Soul creeps every closer to being unleashed on the public, I’ve begun to outline the next book in the saga – the working title is “Out of Oblivion” – and yes! it is epic and awesome or I would not be writing it.

During a meeting with my good friend Dale Young, he suggested I write a short story or a novella from the same world but outside the series of books I have planned. The purpose being to give it away either by publishing it or getting people to sign up on my blog/website for a series of entries and give readers a taste of my style.

The story won’t be drummed up just for promo purposes. I already have two stories within the world of the Creed of Kings Saga that I’ve been chewing for quite sometime. I have a full time job so it takes me a long time to generate a solid story. I have confidence that both of these stories are compelling enough and should be written at some point. Both have great concepts.But one of my worries is that it will sprawl into yet another epic as I strive for awesome.

Bottom line is I’m giving the idea of writing a short story or novella serious thought. If I can control myself and keep it simple, it would also help with a feeling of accomplishment. It would be gratifying to actually write and publish another story fairly quickly. Let me know what do you think?

    How will it hurt? If for some reason it does spin off into something epic, so what! You got epic. If you finish it as a novella, then great! You did what you wanted. Either way, it works!

    If it turns epic it defeats its purpose. I really think I can do it 20 to 30K words.
