Amazon launches 49 cents Shorts service

Posted on Tuesday, August 23 2005 @ 01:39:48 CEST by

Amazon launched a new service which enables publishers to sell short stories, are even alternate chapters or singles scenes from novels, for 49 cents each.

This service is called Amazon Shorts and will solely be delivered digitally.
"Amazon Shorts will help authors find new readers and help readers find and discover authors they'll love," said Steve Kessel, Amazon.com's vice president of digital media. "We hope that by making short-form literature widely and easily available, Amazon.com can help to fuel a revival of this kind of work."

Publishers have always had a hard time selling and marketing the single, short-form work -- the novella, or the novelette, or the even shorter "novelini," he said.
The Amazon Shorts don't need digital right managements software and they can be viewed as a webpage that can be printed, a PDF file that can be downloaded or you can opt to e-mail the story as e plain-text message to your e-mail address.
