I am pleased to report that I have finished the first draft a new Penric & Desdemona novella. I have a potential title, but I'm holding the door on that ajar for a trifle longer in case some better notion or word-string turns up at the last.
Present draft sits at about 43,000 words, on the longer end of the wide range of things called "novellas". This somewhat artificial category means little more than "longer than a short story, shorter than a novel", but is officially defined by people who need exactitude as a story between 17,500 and 40k - 45k words. From the reader's more practical point of view, that translates to something like a quarter to half the length of a novel, unless the novel being envisioned is a door-stopper.
Anyway, the tale takes place a bit less than a year after the events of "The Prisoner of Limnos", and trends more to the action-adventure side than mystery or romance, this outing. The internal-chronological and the publication order happen to match, though I don't guarantee that will always be the case in future stories, if any.
Still to go are the final edit (a maddening phase) and devising a cover and vendor-page copy and such-like tasks. No, I don't have a projected pub date, but I'm hoping no more than a month, maybe. We don't put up pre-order pages for these original e-works; whenever it goes up, at the usual suspects, it may be bought.
