Should You Be Writing Short Fiction?
Consider this. If you write a novel of 70,000 words, you can write ten short stories of 7,000 words in the same stretch of time. Or three novellas of 10,000 words. Your payment for KU “reads” (ten per cent of the ebook) will be the same either way. So your choice is to write one ebook, and get paid just over a dollar for a borrow and read, or spend the same amount of time and energy on shorter fiction. With luck, you’ll make more money, because you’ll get more borrows.
