So, how long do you like it? Now, now, don’t be rude! 😉 I’m talking about book lengths and word counts here!
As I’m sure most of you know, I write a huge amount of variety. That includes in genre, pairing and book length/word count. I just love to work on different types of projects. Admittedly, I would like to write more full-length books, but that would mean writing fewer short stories and novellas, and I often write those either because I’ve been inspired by a call for submissions, or been specifically invited to a project, which is always lovely. There just aren’t enough hours in the day to take part in all the projects I’d like to, and write all the ideas that pop into my head.
Which brings me back to my question… what word length books do you prefer? I’ve been lucky enough to have a few releases out this year, with more coming, but they’ve all been short stories or novellas. My last full-length novel was (re)released in September of last year, and also a co-authored full-length novel was released in October of last year. I’m currently working on my next one, which I hope to release in the next couple of months.
So please let me know in the comments… what book length do you prefer, and why?

In a pirate’s lair, nothing is as it seems . . .
Shipwrecked! When Royce Hastings is found washed up on the shore of a verdant tropical island, he tells the natives he is a merchant headed for Mozambique. The truth, however, is far more mercenary. Noble by birth, the once favored Royce has lost his fortune and family; now he is a hired henchman on the trail of an elusive pirate. His “shipwreck” was a fake. He’ll stop at nothing to infiltrate the island and capture his prey. His mother and sisters’ lives depend on it.
The last thing Royce expects is to be captured himself. But the lovely young woman who tends to his wounds in the tropics quickly takes hold of his heart. Simone is the island’s healer, and her skilled ministrations not only awaken his soul but disturb his conscience. His path has been predetermined; his identity must remain concealed at all costs. Yet the passion he feels in Simone’s sultry, loving arms cannot be denied. With his loyalties torn, Royce must make an agonizing, unthinkable choice. . . .
Recently I had the last book in my Death Isle series (written as Kera Faire, my dark side) accepted by Evernight Publishing.
Called The Carpenter, it’s the story of Maddock and Mason. Both of whom have secrets. I’m hoping it rounds the series off nicely.
Of course never say never wink
I’m now inbox refreshing for edits and of course the cover. This series covers designed by Jay Aheer for Simply Defined Art are brilliant. My best Evernight covers ever.
I don’t know if it matters to you, but I do enjoy a good cover that hints and teases about the story it portrays.
These do. In spades.
Take them individually and then from one to the next. You see the way the follow each other, like the soft swell of the Loch the books are set on.
I just can’t wait to see The Carpenter cover… Watch this space,
love Raven x
