Short and Sweet by Morgan Mandel
I don't have anything like that kind of patience these days. I enjoy reading full length, but not lengthy novels, of less than 400 printed pages, and write that length as well.
I'm also getting into the swing of reading and writing novellas, which run one-third to one-half the length of full length novels. They're short and sweet, with just enough words to tell a story and bring it to conclusion.
Novellas seem to be catching on these days, so I designed Her Handyman with that preference in mind. It was a challenge, yet fun to tell the story of two very different individuals: a down-to-earth handyman and a rich, quirky artist. For special effects, I added a crazy canine. I enjoyed the experience so much, I'll be doing another in the short and sweet mode!
If you also prefer novellas, you can find Her Handyman for 99 cents on kindle at
Right now, I'm also offering Forever Young: Blessing or Curse for 99 cents at
