*  If your novel is recommended for publication, the $50 fee will be credited toward your publishing fee
*  If your novel is a good story but due to errors -  inconsistencies*bad grammar*poor spelling etc - and cannot be considered for LCP publication at this time, we will reconsider once your full manuscript has been edited.

Correcting your manuscript now will prevent costly delays in processing your manuscript for publication. Therefore the basics are:
  1. The word count on novels should fall between 55,000 - 100,000 words. If your novel has a larger word count, please contact us.
