Ep 103: the Quick Delightful Novellas

On this Episode of Buzzing about Romance Becky and Leah are joined by Podcast Contributor Carolina as they break down the Novella. They also briefly talk about Category Romance and Anthologies. We talk about we like about Novellas. We also share some of our favorite Novella Authors with you.

Category Romance.   

Category romances are short, usually no more than 200 pages, or about 55,000 words. The books are published in clearly delineated lines, with a certain number of books published in each line every month. In many cases, the books are numbered sequentially within the line.    

Anthology 

17th century “Collection of Blooms”  Anthologies were very much a part of East Asian culture as a way to compile poetry.  
a published collection of poems or other pieces of writing. In genre fiction, the term anthology typically categorizes collections of shorter works, such as short stories and short novels, by different authors, each featuring unrelated casts of characters and settings, and usually collected into a single volume for publication 

In genre fiction, the term anthology typically categorizes collections of shorter works, such as short stories and short novels, by different authors, each featuring unrelated casts of characters and settings, and usually collected into a single volume for publication. Alternatively, it can also be a collection of selected writings (short stories, poems etc.) by one author 

Novella

The term Novellino comes from 1353 Italy.   

 A novella is a stand-alone piece of fiction that is shorter than a full-length novel but longer than a short story. Novellas incorporate many narrative and structural elements of novel-length stories, but they often focus on a single point of view. 

This is based on the US based writers of America…  Novellas are short novels, from 17,500 or 20,000 words usually up to about 40,000 words, or about 100–200 pages.  Technically there is no universal definition of a Novella  

Novellas will not always be divided into chapter
