Writing Books/short love books


No one is a expepert at love.  And I really don't read at all.  However, short stories I tell off the top of my head I have found I can hold the attention of 20-25 people at a time with leaving them wanting more.  Some of which are strangers.  So, can a book form from short story lines or ideas?

Short fiction and book-length fiction have their similarities and their differences.  Book-length fiction can afford to be much more involved, with intricate story lines that short fiction simply can't do.

But the easy answer to your question is yes.

Collections of short stories are sometimes put into book form, too, but generally only from well-known authors.

For four years, I taught a series of fiction writing classes in Sacramento, CA.

BA in fiction writing.
