Tall tales and short ones
I seem to be downsizing these days. I used to write four-volume series, sometimes expanding them into 8 or 9. No more. Last year I started what I thought would be a YA book, and it stalled at about 1/4 the size it should be. Stories do insist on being their own length, as any writer will tell you. I put that one away, but eventually I realized that it stood on its own. I tried it on my fourteen-year-old grandson, who said it was a great story and kept him turning the pages: obviously he has inherited a fine taste in literature. I offered it to Robert Runte and Lorina Stephens at Five Rivers Publishing. Read all about it here.
