"But didn't you just publish a book?" I did, but I always have something going on (like my serials). I'd like to keep it under 40k words, but I said the same thing about my last book. And that one was 63k.
I'm currently focused on a novella set in the same series and town, but the MC, isn't Evan this time; it's a park ranger who is exploring the dating scene. She's essentially a late bloomer, but was aware of her sexuality for years. She just never acted on it until her late 30's, having been career focused for so long.
