Notes from my Book Editor

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.

About Patrick Scott Barnes

Most of Central Florida knows Stone Crazy (Patrick Scott Barnes) as a poet. Yet, he also photographs, DJ and blogs. The rest of the time, he's guzzling booze in a Central Florida bar.
