It is finished. The final edits have been done. My novella will be out on November 5th.

You might have questions:

Novella? What novella?

I’ve written a 20,000 word novella. Actually, it is more of a novelette.

nov·el·ette – /ˌnävəˈlet/


a short novel, typically one that is light and romantic or sentimental in character.

What’s it about?

It’s a lesbian, sweet, holiday romance. You can read about it by clicking here or visiting

So, it’s erotica? A sex book?

No. Emphatically, no.

While there is bad language in the book, that is the only reason it would get a PG-13 or R rating if it were a movie – Potty words.

Sex is suggested and implied, but never spoken about or described. I leave that people who want to write erotica. I just wanted to write a cute, heartwarming story, so I did…under a pen name.

Why under a pen name? You embarrassed to be writing that kind of thing?

Not at all. It’s a business strategy.

It is kind of like how we see Nora Roberts on a book and think, “Okay. That’s a romance book.” Then, we see J.D. Robb, and think, “Okay, that’s a thriller.” Nora Roberts and J.D. Robb are the same person, but readers know what kind of story they are going to get from the author by which author voice she uses.

I am hoping to cultivate a collection of holiday, sweet romance novelettes, novellas, and novels that tell stories about all kinds of relationships, couples, and groups.

What is the pen name…author voice?

Lily Dae.
