Man, Is The First Half Of This Novel Too Long

by Shelt Garner

Well, things are going really well with this novel but for one thing — the first half (the first act and the first half of the second act) is going to be way too fucking long (at least in scene count.)

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo was too long for a first novel, too.

But I have a viable explanation for why this is and it all leads up to a really good pay off. And, it’s at least possible that I could split the thing into two if the story is just too long. It might require an editor to figure out how exactly I would do that, but it’s not out of the realm of possibility that that could be done.


Very pleased with the story I’ve come up with.
