NOVELLO PUBLISHERS is not currently accepting submissions.

However, we plan to open to novella submissions (stories between 15K-25K) for both our main line as well as our SQUID SALAD PRESS bizarro imprint in the Spring of 2014. NOVELLO BLUE, our new noir-thriller imprint, is by invite only.

Check back here in early 2014 for updated information.

We have finished the final round of edits on our first full-length novel, to be released under our new NOVELLO BLUE imprint. HARD is a sexy noir-thriller by L.L. Soares, a wicked cross between BOOGIE NIGHTS and PULP FICTION with plenty of dark surprises thrown in. Killer cover image below by Julia Sevin. Looking for a late October, 2013 release.

We've also received three stories (so far) for our 2014 anthology, tentatively titled THE GRUESOME TENSOME: A TRIBUTE TO HERSCHELL GORDON LEWS. This anthology features authors who not only love the legendary cult film director, but who are capturing the campy, fun, and gruesome essence of his films into short story form. Authors include Jeff Strand, Gregory Lamberson, Jordan Krall, MP Johnson, Garrett Cook, L.L. Soares, William Carl, David Hayes, Mark McLaughlin, and John Skipp. The title will change if the final author count does. More news to follow...

New Title Now Available

Peter N. Dudar's insane novella BLOOD CULT OF THE BOOBY FARMERS is now available as a trade paperback. Order right here:
Some early reviews:
"The twist at the end is one I never saw coming and absolutely loved...BLOOD CULT OF THE BOOBY FARMERS is one book you seriously need to add to your horror collection."
-Monster Librarian
"If you took the brains of Edward Lee and Russ Meyer and threw them into a blender, the resulting tangy beverage would taste an awful lot like Peter Dudar's BLOOD CULT OF THE BOOBY FARMERS."
- L.L. Soares, author of LIFE RAGE and ROCK 'N' ROLL
"If you are a fan of those old horror grindhouse films, BLOOD CULT OF THE BOOBY FARMERS is a must read. It’s a masterpiece of extreme fiction."
-Horror World

Our FIRST full-length novel

We're THRILLED to announce our first full-length novel:

L.L. Soares and Novello Publishers are doing something different. And it’s not horror.

A young porn star.
A former cop.
His ex-wife, who tortures people for a living.
What do these people have in common?

Well, one thing is for sure. It’s HARD.

HARD. The first literary novel from L.L. Soares. Coming from a new imprint of Novello Publishers in May of 2013.

Just wait and see what we’ve got in store for you!
