Mara Purl – Guest Blog Post
Novels, Novellas & Novelettes — Which is which? Which should you write?
Hosted by the Anne R. Allen Blog — About Writing, Mostly

Mara Purl guests on this nationally-known and widely followed blog about All Things Writerly. Drawing from her own experience writing the Milford-Haven saga (which includes novels, novellas, and novelettes), and siting examples from the classics to contemporary colleagues like Anne Perry, Diana Gabaldon, and many others, Mara takes you on a ride through these distinct forms of fiction.

Enjoy and learn!
