Why Novellas are the New Awesome

GritAndGraceCoverNovellas are so cool these days. So awesome.

Before I started writing I had never heard of a novella. I had to look it up. They’re roughly 10k-15k words, so they’re around a fifth of a short novel. They aren’t short stories. Short stories are capped at around 5k. When I was first trying to publish stories, I found absolutely no outlets for novellas.

Grit and Grace Cover Reveal

GritAndGraceCoverMy new novella, Grit and Grace is coming soon and now it has a cover. It’s a story written in the same cyberpunk western world as Justice in an Age of Metal and Men, but it follows new characters exploring different parts of Texas.

It’s exciting. There’s action. Also, guns. I’m not going to go into a lot of detail quite yet, but here’s a quick description for you to think about:

Winston Brand is a bounty hunter, but his day gets complicated when he wakes after a battle he doesn’t remember. By the looks of it, it’s not a battle he won. All he knows is that Goodwin is paying good money to track down a girl. There are other hunters, too, so Winston hardly has time to ask himself the question:

Why does Chester Goodwin want his own daughter back Dead or Alive?

Grit and Grace is now available for pre-orders via Amazon.
