Nomadic Novellas


The guidelines are pretty straight-forward, we’re looking for stories of novella length. We’re mostly interested in science fiction, but we will consider fantasy. Other than that, the theme is basically up to you. All novellas will be released in both print and e-book format.


Length: The SFWA defines a novella as being a story between 17,500 words and 40,000 words, and that definition works for us. If your story falls between those lengths, then you can submit it here. If not, please look at our other guidelines.


Payment: We will pay $50 in advance against royalties plus 3 contributors’ copies. In addition, the author shall receive 25% of all profits made from the book…paid quarterly once the advance has been earned out.


All works must be completely original. We will not consider any stories that are AI created or AI assisted. We do not want to see anything that AI has been involved in, so don't send it here!


Where to send your gems: All submission should be sent to editor (at) nomadicdeliriumpress (dot) com. We think you can figure out the real address. Your subject line should read “Novella Submission.”


Other important info: All submissions should be sent as .doc, .docx, or .rtf files. We will respond within two months. All submissions must be original works. We will not publish works based in other people’s universes…of course, a universe of your own creation is just fine. We will not consider reprints or simultaneous submissions.

Any questions should be directed to the submission address above.
