Beauty Of A Woman Blogfest, hosted by August McLaughlin features some wonderful posts.  All about women and beauty, you'll laugh, cry, and relate to every woman's entry in some way.  I stumbled across it accidentally and wanted to share. 

Author, Matt Hofferth posted an interesting article cataloging the differences in book length.  Here's the long and short of it...get it..the 'long' and 'short'...(giggles at unintended funny)
  • Novel - Anything larger than 40k (so 50k is a safe assumption, it seems).
  • Novella - 17,500 and 40,000 words.
  • Novelette - 7,500 and 17,499 words.
  • Short Story - Up to 7,500 words. Anything under 1,000 can also be referred to as Flash Fiction, which is a subset of the Short Story.
What is your favorite story length?  I enjoy them all....

  Novellas are growing in popularity from what I'm seeing.  They're fun, easily devoured in a night or two, and usually inexpensive.  I've read a number of them in the past few weeks - I'll be posting reviews! - and will continue to do so.  That being said, I don't think the novel is going anywhere soon.  I gravitate toward long novels, probably because I tear through books at an alarming rate, never wanting the story to end!  Well, the good ones anyhow... What do you think?

  1. I mostly read novels, but I enjoy every story length, too.

  2. Agreed, Pepca. Novels will most likely always remain my favorite, but novellas are at times the perfect diversion. Thanks for stopping by!
