Introducing GRAVE MARKERS

We all know that every story has its own length, a set number of words needed to tell the story it needs to tell. Some are very clearly short stories -- under 10,000 words -- while others that require more (20,000 words or more) are novellas or novels. But what about those in-between stories, the stories that fall awkwardly between the 10,000 and 20,000 words.

Recently we've been receiving stories that fall into that category and we were at a loss as to what to do with them. Too long for an anthology, but not quite long enough to stand on its own as a short novel (novella), these novelettes often fall through the cracks and it's a shame because often they are quite good but publishers just don't know what to do with them. That's why we decided to launch a new line: GRAVE MARKERS.

What's a GRAVE MARKER and how will they differ? Those stories accepted to the GRAVE MARKER line will be published as stand-alone offerings in digital format only. Early the following year all of the GRAVE MARKERS published the previous year will be compiled into a print collection of novelettes. We expect the competition for this line to be fierce, as we will only be accepting 4 to 6 novelettes during the course of the year, so send us your very best.
