Thank you so much to the ladies at Book Lovin’ Mamas for having me here today!
I absolutely love to read—clearly, or it’s unlikely I would be a writer. While I love reading full length novels, my schedule doesn’t always allow it. Sometimes I just want to read something bite-size and get a quick happy ending (that sounds dirty, but I don’t mean it that way lol). Luckily there are so many fabulous novellas available now. When I first started writing (before so many types of ereaders hit the market), the only novellas I found available were either from erotic publishers or in print anthologies from traditional publishers.
Now, things have changed and traditional publishers are putting out novellas in digital format only (yay!) which is awesome for many reasons. In fact, novellas are pure awesome and this is why I enjoy them so much:
1. I don’t have to buy a three or four-author anthology anymore just to read one author.
2. I can read an entire novella at the end of a long day and get my HEA fix.
3. Many authors are now releasing novellas in between their full length books, giving readers more to read in their favorite series’.
4. I’ve found that novellas tend to be more character driven since everything has to be written very tight, especially the external conflict.
5. Lower prices!
What about you? Why do you like novellas? Leave a comment and be entered to win a print copy of Primal Possession (US only), my upcoming release in the Moon Shifter series! In the meantime, Lover’s Instinct (a novella!) is out now.
About Lover’s Instinct:
Lupine shifter Nikan Lawless has it bad for Esperanze Cordona, the sweet and curvy woman who only views him as a friend. But when Nikan is assigned to act as Esperanze’s bodyguard during a weekend education conference, he knows it’s the perfect opportunity to seduce her off her feet—away from the pack.
To put his plan into motion Nikan cancels one of their hotel rooms, giving them time to get to know one another in a whole different way. But when a man from Esperanze’s past shows up in need of help, Nikan must shield her from a group of dangerous rogue shifters, all while trying to prove that they’re destined to be mates.
A little about Katie: I’ve been reading romance since a young age—ever since I discovered my mom’s hidden stash. Luckily the addiction stayed with me into adulthood. I write paranormal romance and sexy romantic suspense for Carina Press, Harlequin Nocturne, and NAL/Signet Eclipse.
