Novellas are on the Rise

One of the latest trends is an increase in the popularity of novellas.

It used to be that novellas were a tough sale. Often publishers and agents would only take them if they were paired with other novellas to create one long book or were embedded in a collection of short stories.

Ebooks have had a hand in changing this for the better. Novellas now are easier to sell because the market has changed. Reading on cell phones has had a particular impact because the shorter form is better suited to that style of consumption.

If you’ve been hanging onto a novella because you heard the market wasn’t buying, take it out of the drawer. See what happens when you send it out to agents and publishers today!
