I finally submitted my novella for review. We will see what becomes of it. I have never written a novella before, but I’m glad I was encouraged to write this one, because it’s a story I have been wanting to tell for a long time. There may also be another novella in my future.
The novella is a Gothic, creative non-fiction piece of work. IF I move forward with another novella, it might be a gritty crime story.
Overall, most of my newer work does seem to be leaning creative non-fiction, or narrative non-fiction. I don’t think that’s going to stop, and I think I’m only going to embrace it more. I am a former journalist and a research scientist by day, and what’s always been more meaningful to me personally are stories grounded in truth, and historical fact.
What’s next? A large body of work that’s due from me…asap, that I can’t really say much more about. Also, my next novel in the Chicago Saga series. I do have a few short stories due this summer as well, and an essay, but my priority is going to be this large work and Chicago Saga Book 2.
Also, I was interviewed on the Something For Nothing Podcast. You can listen to that here.
Thanks for reading.
