2014 Submission Stats

So, I started off the year submitting one novella, one short story translation, and one short story.  For reasons I’ll explain later, I’m going to stop submitting here for the year, but I thought I’d take a peek at submission stats before I close up shop.

It looks like I subbed these 3 works a total of 8 times and received 4 personalized rejections, 3 form rejections, and 1 acceptance.  Not too shabby?

SF&F Novella Guide

As a sort of follow-up to my Short Fiction Guide, I’m going to work on collecting places that publish novellas. Since, y’know, they’re hard to find if DIY isn’t an option.

For this list’s purposes, novella means 17.5k to 40k words.  Plenty of places publish novelettes, (up to 17.5k), novellas are trickier. So, here goes!

Magazines, Semi-pro & pro rates:

Asimov’s. SF. (25k limit) [website][submissions]

Electric Velocipede. SF&F. (40k limit) [website][submissions]

Fantasy & Science Fiction Magazine. SF&F. (25k limit) [website][submissions]

OSC’s Intergalactic Medicine Show. SF&F. (no word limit) [website][submissions]
