stand-with-nouvella-v02

In August, there was a successful Kickstarter to “Shut Down Nouvella”. Don’t worry, we’re not going anywhere.

 

The people behind the Kickstarter, Globo Books, are as out-of-touch as any major publisher these days. They fear what they don’t understand. They want to shut us down because our books are too short, our authors & stories are too diverse, and we just don’t belong in the Gentlemen’s Club that is modern publishing.

 

So Globo Books wants to #ShutDownNouvella on November 14. They’ve convinced their backers to post photos of novellas about to be destroyed. And honestly, they’ve gotten pretty creative with it:

While we’re thrilled with the extra attention their misguided Kickstarter generated, we hope you’ll #StandWithNouvella on November 14, and post pictures and videos exhibiting your love for medium-form fiction.┬áLike these:
