Fantastic new website for short stories at the lowest price!!!
Have you ever wondered whether short stories will sell? If the readers really like to buy these small bits of fiction that seem to be more and more popular? I know that novellas are appreciated, but they normally have from 15,000 – 20,000 words. I’m talking about a story with 5,000 – 15,000 words…a short story.
Recently, I wrote a short prequel to my new Romantic Suspense series “Vegas”. I called it Partners and in this short I wrote the introduction to my characters, the backstory if you will, to the hero and heroine that would be the two main people featured in the full-length sequel Roll the Dice.
Not expecting any great sales, I nevertheless felt it would be a significant addition to the series as a whole. Seems I was right. Many of the reviewers stated that it was short, but on the other hand, the comments were positive and showed that the readers followed through and bought the next book.
Let’s face it. People today have such a fast-paced life. Most women work a full-time job and still have a home and a family to look after. Therefore their time to relax is shortened. So they read on their tablets, e-readers and phones. I guess not having to struggle through a novel of 300 – 400 pages is an advantage.
So... there are more and more of the shorter stories available to fill the demand. As an author, I’m thankful to be able to get a break every so often and produce something that’s fun and fast.
****Speaking of fun and fast, I’m working on a ‘bridge’ story (short of course) which will cover the time between Roll the Dice and the next full-length Vegas book called High Stakes Gamble. This short is called Vegas Rift, and for those of you who have read the series, it will describe Detective Aurora Morelli’s life after she becomes a killer and before her newborn daughter is kidnapped by a vicious baby snatcher.
Available next month on Amazon.
