Maybe an even better question would be…do short stories
sell at all?
To be honest with you all, I don’t have the answer yet. To be even more honest my short Meeting Kate has sold so far 50 copies, not New York bestseller list stuff…but I do believe we are moving and penetrating markets with short stories through the kindle platform. Yes people live busy lives, and busy people tend to have little time to read. It is there that we need to connect with our target markets. Those busy people whom a short read of an hour are enough to spend on lunch or sit through a boring commute.
Money vs time
There is another side to writing shorts stories and fiction. Writers can churn out shorter work more often opening up various revenue streams…however, there is still that burning desire to actually write that best selling novel.
Anyhow I am busy with my follow up short story…I will keep you posted.
For now, please hop over and get yourself a copy of my short story Meeting Kate and help out a struggling author…
