I'm a Canadian author currently writing short stories. (I've discovered that my novels fizzle out after 100 pages... but I can pack a heck of a punch in 8-16 pages!)
I'm pretty new to the Amazon community, but I decided to jump into the pool of Kindle publishing. Yesterday, my story His Story was published. Now I'm not sure what to do.
Do short stories sell well on the Kindle? I priced it at $0.99, which I thought would be a fair and pretty low price... thoughts?
Does promotion of short stories vary from novels?
Any useful things to point me to? Eg. links, resources, lists of things not to do when you're a newbie author to avoid having people send hordes of flying monkeys after you...?
Should I be giving away short stories, and if so, how? (I assume I get someone's email address and send them a PDF copy... I'll even autograph it, hehe. :D)
Thanks so much... looking forward to getting into this and actually understanding what I'm doing, haha.
Author of "His Story" and assorted other unpublished pieces. ;)
