The Shortish Project is a new publishing program dedicated to short novels -- original fiction from 75 pages to 200 pages (or so) in length. (Or about 14,000 words to 42,000 words or so.) 

Our standards are high, but the Shortish Project is open to all styles & genres. We encourage everyone to join in!

Titles published by The Shortish Project are distributed in paperback and ebook editions. The process is streamlined and designed to support each author's own marketing plan. We can move fast or slow.
