Novella is done!

First draft of the new Alex Verus novella is finished!  It ended up being 33,000 words (for comparison, the average Alex Verus novel comes in at between 90,000 and 100,000).

The novella’s currently with my beta readers, which is the first step in my editing process.  Once it’s fully edited, checked, and proof-read, I’ll format it and make it available for sale on the Kindle Store.  At the moment I’m aiming for a release date that’s around the end of the month, i.e. at Halloween (this novella’s a little darker than usual for my stories, so it feels appropriate).  We’ll see if I make it!

    A little darker than usual oh God o_O.
    Meaning all that White Rose stuff will look like child’s play.
    Heh. Heh.

    Always glad to see more of Alex. Came to your series as a Dresden fan looking for a side dish. Ended up preferring Verus.

    Looking forward to the new novella. With the delay concerning the new series until late 2023, are you considering doing another Novella. I remember you mentioning having several ideas for novellas; including looking at Variam and his master.

    Will there be an audio book version? I hope!
