Novellas – Why Readers And Authors Love Them
What’s a novella? I hear you cry. While most authors are familiar with them, a lot of readers don’t know that what they are, even though they have probably read at least a few. The easiest explanation, simplistic though it is, is that a novella is longer than a short story, but shorter than a novel. The commonly accepted word count of novellas ranges from 20 000 to 40 000 words (although some say 50 000 and I’ll go along with that, as my novella An Affair With Danger is 46 000 words).
