Beth Daniels first went Indie with her backlist, then added a couple stories that were new but “overlooked” by “intelligent” editors. You know the type. Obviously short sighted. In any event, she also began writing in different genre niches under new pseudonyms and knew that in the Internet era of self promotion that to kick start things, and prime readers for novel length tales before the traditional publisher released something, there needed to be other, shorter stories in the same fictional universe. The first “born” of these was the Prequel Novellas in her Raven’s tale world, followed by Covert Cog novella length cases for her Weird West Steampunk teams to solve. In 2021 she’s gone in yet a new direction, mixing mystery with romantic comedy and the paranormal world for a set of stories written totally for rapid release and not tied to any of her other series. While she has 30+ novels to her various names, in her Indie world there are now 9 novellas tied to two different series worlds plus 8 (and growing) short stories setting up yet other series worlds. All under the flag of “rapid release”. Visit her at www.RomanceAndMystery2.com, www.JBDaneAndNiedDarnell.com, www.WritingSteampunk.com, or at www.Muse2Ms.com.
