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.
Early reader feedback has been positive and incredulous. It’s not publicly available yet, but I’ll keep you posted.
