If it was fiction it would be a Novella, but I'm not sure if that applies to nonfiction. Look forward to the book(let).
Yes, it is strange that in the nonfiction arena, there is no analog to "novella'.

I think book or booklet is fine. Let us know when it's available. :yes:
When I think of 'booklet' I think of a pamphlet :lol: So yeah, I'm publishing a pamphlet :bounce:

I really, really recommend that you both watch The Queen's Gambit, on which my pamphlet or booklet is based. I know you'll like it. Only trouble is, it's Netflix.

I'd be happy to send you both a free copy when my thing comes out.

They did. Gave it 3 stars, said it kept hem scrolling but they complained about the editing and the pronouns.

I think you scored number three too harshly. Why don't you have an Avatar?

Worked for Thomas Paine.

I've got Netflix. I'll try to catch it.

Actually I'd prefer to buy it and influence the sales figures. :D

I agree, it was a real, uh, scroll turner. What was wrong with the pronouns? They preferred amateurnouns?

He complained that they were "psuedo gender neutral" :conf: . But at least he called the story entertaining.

I wonder what bona fide gender neutral is.
