From 1st April until 30th July 2015 Pendragon Press will be open for novella submissions only.
As a life-long fan of the novella, I – Chris, the boss – feel that now with the likes of Tor in the US also publishing novellas, the time has come for this gem of storytelling to reach a wider audience, therefore after some thought on where I find Pendragon going, this is my plan for at least the next 12-18 months.
Our entire ethos is that we don't try too pigeon-hole what we publish – if we like it, we'll publish it – but as a general rule of thumb if your manuscript fits what we have previously published then it is a safe bet to chance whether we say yay or nay.
The preferred word count for a Pendragon novella is 25,000-30,000.
If we do say yay, then Pendragon will offer the following:
– First UK and Commonwealth paperback rights for 12 months with a one-off payment of £100 and 10 complimentary copies;
– Worldwide ebook rights on Kindle for 12 months with 60% royalty based on net sales.
If you are still interested, then email the first 10,000 words to pendragoneditor at gmail dot com.
