From the Grit City Publishing guidelines:

GCP accepts novel-length work (65K+ words) and novella-length work (variable word count). Your story does not have to be serialized for submissions. If accepted, our editors will help you with the transformation.

EmotoSingles must be at least 6K to 10K words in length, the minimum of one Emotobook installment.

We encourage you to experience already published Emotobooks. You must first read the free How to Create Emotobooks handbook. Learn the story telling style & structure. Become aware of how the emotional representations fit into each story.

Note: If you do not have a presence on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+, you are not taking your career seriously and GCP is not interested. 200 followers are required on each.
