Any plans to expand Pale to a novel like you did "Limbless Bodies Swaying"?
Possibly. I started a novella expansion a few years back, but some of the subplots aren’t very unique. For example, one of the characters is on a road trip to unite with her sister; it’s the familiar “travel to a loved one” scenario done so well in Brian Keene’s The Rising and several other zombie stories. For the “Pale” novella or novel to work, I would have to change that entire subplot, which, as of now, takes up about fifty percent of what I’ve already written.
Currently, I’m invested in other projects, other novels, but that doesn’t mean, somewhere down the road, I won’t come back to the “Pale” expansion. I’ve always wanted to find out what happens to Nathan after (spoiler) he escapes the farmhouse, so . . . maybe I could combine his story with that of the characters from “Suzy Polenski’s Panties” and just scratch the other unoriginal subplot. Who knows?
