 New stretch target

There are three writers, two editors, one general editor, two designers, and a marketing and sales professional working on Novella Express. It's very easy to know what to do with the extra money ― pay everyone more. Money will go first and mostly to the writers Siné Kang, Ja' Licia Gainer and Sean McNulty. The designers have been paid market rates, but we have offered them bonuses if a certain amount of sales were made ― their work is beautiful to us and makes our project come alive.

Sin  Kang

Sin  Kang's masterful novella rouses the readers mind in concepts and thoughts that will preoccupy a mind long after the book has been completed. Through witnessing the discussion between a mother and son, a son's whose voice is ignored, and a mother whose ignorance is forced, we come to understand that the long discussions of Mother and Son on the page is merely an example of the discussions we wish to have with our friends, our loved ones, and ourselves.

Ja' Licia Gainer

When Two Lives collide, they find that through their love and time together, some wounds can heal. Overcoming their problems was never going to be easy. But through each other, Joanna and Dante will certainly try.  From Ja' Licia Gainer comes a tale of love, family and betrayal.

Sean McNulty

What's the Moose, Munter? is the crazy sad tale of the cartoonist, Munter, living out his days in the city of Dublin, forgotten and anonymous, haunted by an alcoholic past, and the ghost of a Japanese rock star. While investigating this ghost, Munter meets and befriends Nobuko, a bereaved woman with a fierce drinking problem of her own. Their adventures bring them to late cafes and pub quizzes, as they roam the streets with the pale and the pole-axed, with God, Chinese philosophy .... and a moose ... whatever that is.
