Turning Short Stories Into Novels

As I’ve been doing my final read-thru and editing on the first chapter of The Wheel Of Fire (tentative title), I got to thinking about the short story I finished and whether or not I should start to stretch it out to be a novel or work the third Talia novel. While I’m going to try to sell it as a short story, there’s a lot of things that take place in 9k words and in some ways it feels rushed.

Would it make a good novel? There is the possibility of it being that, especially since the character isn’t such a “good girl” like my others have been. There’s no real redeeming qualities to her, but she’s still an interesting character. This is where I’d love to ask for opinions. Would people like to see me keep this short story as a short or work to stretch it out into a novel? I’m sure I could do so rather easily.

I’ll let you, my followers, help me decide that.
