Last week, I received notes from Christoph Paul, my book editor.
Also, I talked to Christoph on the phone.
Currently, I am working on my novella Booty Holocaust.. Thinking she’s going to a Posterior Reduction Facility, African-American Stacey Weaver finds herself in a booty concentration camp. In this world, a big and round booty is outlawed. Why? Because scientific evidence proves Gluteus Hippomaximus Disorder Disease (GHDD) causes violence and sexual promiscuity. The main symptom of GHDD is a big round booty. GHDD affects mostly women of African descent including Latinas.
A novella is shorter than a novel. While a novel usually contains 35,000 to 80, 000 words, a novella contain 17,500 to 40,000 words.
The editor and I both agreed Booty Holocaust may be around 25,000 words.
Because I do not have the patience for writing a novel, writing a novella fits me fine. I attempted writing novels in the past. Either I never finished them or found myself disappointed about the finished project. Now, I have independent publisher New English Press willing to work with me.
Time to get to work.
