Seeking YOUR Novella!

Seeking YOUR Novella!

We are pleased to announce our plans for the second book, in what we hope will become a biennial series! Weathered Edge: Three Alaskan Novellas is a unique opportunity for novella writers to get their work out into the public and in the hands of enthusiastic readers.

What do you need to do to submit?

First, go to our “Submissions” link and read through the requirements.
Second, send us your writing sample along with a description of your novella.
Third, wait for a reply to your submission. ALL submissions will be reviewed, however, only those adhering to the submission requirements will given a reply. If you are unable to submit your work in the format required, but would still like to submit in another format, please contact us BEFORE you submit so we can help you get your submission to us for consideration.

Once your novella has been selected, you will be notified via email to begin work on the publication.

The submission period will be open from April 1, 2014 through May 15, 2014.

What you should know:

This is not a contest. There is no prize money or expectation of completed work without pay (unless you have already completed your novella). Three novellas will be selected and each writer will be given a contract with a proper royalty schedule.

A small advance will be paid with the first half of the advance paid out upon receipt of the signed contract and the second half to be paid out upon receipt of the completed, edited and press ready manuscript.

Details of the editing process will be discussed with each writer when the submission process is closed and the final selection completed.

If you have any questions about the novella collection, the submission process or anything else, please don’t hesitate to contact us at:

queries@vpdhouse.com with Book submission in the subject line.

We look forward to seeing your work!
