I think I hinted a while back that I was working on a secret project. Well, it’s no longer a secret. I’m scheduled to write two novellas this year. This is while my next novel makes its way through the publishing process.
I have my ideas for both novellas in place, but I’ve only developed the first one well enough to discuss. In it, a YouTuber investigates the disappearance of a popular couple from Hollywood’s golden age. There is also a missing screenplay and a mysterious painting. Of course, it wouldn’t be a book of mine without something uncanny or surreal. In this novel, two characters are drawn to the power of reflections and are unsettled by what camera lenses do to them. Maybe not the pithy sales pitch I need, but it was enough to get me writing.
My first deadline is April 30th. I don’t know if I’ll make that of not. If you’re interested in more detailed progress reports, I’m sharing updates and early drafts over at Working Writer.
