After thinking about it for a while, I decided I should continue work on one of my better pieces of writing. I only wrote up to the second chapter, but I have spent the last hour and 20 minutes reading over these chapters and adjusting where nescessary. I have also compiled a small plotline which details enough for me to write about. On average each chapter holds about 7 pages in size 11 Garamond font, with around 4,500 words. with these estimations, I can safely say my book will be around 98 pages, with around 63,000 words. So, a "short novel", if you will.
I'm not sure what the conversion rate is between a standard 'slightly smaller then A3' sized novel compared to my A4 calculations above, but either way I'm considering this piece of work a "short novel" for casual readers.
So far I've received completely positive feedback on the storyline of these two openings chapters so far from around 10 people and so I hope this (very small) trend continues. 9 of the 10 people wanted me to sell them the rest of the book, whereas the 10th person gave me their details and to let them know when I'm publishing it. Once my book is near completion (possibly around Easter next year) I shall post a few dates up here when I'll be promoting my book around my local area. Online sales won't be for a while after, once I know how successful the book will do in Britain.
No details of the book's storyline, topic or nature will be revealed on here - or anywhere else - until it it successfully copywritten under law globally to prevent theft of my characters, situations, ideas and concepts.
I will be posting a teaser chapter of my 'work in progress' over on deviantART once it's ready, so you can head on over there and read about it and give me your comments either on there (if you're a member) or on here if you are not.
Good luck with your book! I wish I could read it, but it's a good plan to not post anything on a blog, that's just asking for it to get stolen. » alexsedotcx
