Short Stories

Over the years, I’ve written a number of short stories. Just little vignettes to get the scenes floating through my mine down on paper so I can concentrate on other things. You know, the important things like work and sleep.

I’ve amassed quite a few that have a definite beginning, middle and end. Alas, and many others, that are more like story starts. Great beginnings that can’t be wound up in a few pages. I’ve decided to take my complete stories, re-edit them and send them to Paperbox Books for publishing.

E-books are a great way for short-stories to be offered for sale. Without having to worry about printing costs there is no need to have a 5000 word story sell for the same amount as a 60,000 word novel just to recoup expenses.

Now the challenge will be finding an efficient way to market the stories and find readers. Not all the big distributors offer a section in their online stores for short stories, they’re lumped in with all the others. The should be interesting.
