You may recall that last Halloween, the sedulous Benjamin Trube challenged me to write a romance novel for NaNoWriMo – 50,000 words, finished by November 30. If I managed it, he would personally record an audio book of whatever I had written.
Well, I didn’t make November 30, and we ended up dropping the word requirement to 25K. But I did, in the end, cross the finish line.
A few weeks ago I handed Mr. Trube a copy of my “romance” “novel.”
“Novel” is in quotes because 25K words is pretty damn short for a novel. And “romance” is in quotes because the book is pretty damn ridiculous, as you might guess from the title: The Desirable Man Who Entered a Relationship with the Heroine Despite Occasional Setbacks Described Herein.
I took the liberty of mocking up some covers.
Direct image links: front cover, back cover.
Early reader feedback has been positive and incredulous. It’s not publicly available yet, but I’ll keep you posted.
Worth it just for the back cover!
Haha, thanks man!
The best part of this post is definitely the J.K. Rowling quote. I spent a good minute laughing when I read that one.
Let me tell you, she wields a mean Avada Kedavra…
