2802 I would also like to introduce The Chronicles of Abigoth, an ongoing series of novella length paranormal thrillers... each one a little thrill ride in a paranormal amusement park.

Enjoy!

2802 You think you're weird with your kindle.... check this out.

I of course write on my computer but I find proofing very difficult on a screen... its not the glare but for some reason i just cant see the errors or awkward passages. so i print out the pages and edit paper and pencil... lots of waste, dead trees and costs.

Enter the kindle. I find i can see the errors and awkward passages on the perl ink sccreen. So now i read my kindle while sitting at my computer. when i find a mistake, etc it goes into the word processor. So no more wasted paper.

For actual reading for pleasure I still prefer a book when at home, but love the kindle when i am out and about... and its the cheapest lightest one for me (and i have both the little touch as well as the big DX whatever it is).

cheers

2802 Yep, all about the coffeeshop and atmosphere. And honesstly i do like buying printed books from time to time so I would buy more than coffee. Would also be nice if they supported some of their local indie authors with readings and promotions... god knows they have all the lists then need to make that work

2802 How odd. It could also be the margins. If its an ebook the author can do all kinds of crazy things to make the book page could look longer. Some people wont buy an ebook for more than 0.99 if it isnt a full length book.

2802 Pretty much just length, but with length other things change like the level of complication of the plot and the degree of character development.

Some people define a short story as anything less than like 7,000 words. I have seen definitions upto 20,000 words. A novel tends to be at least 50,000 words with most near or over the 70,000 mark. So that space between short story and novel is the wrelm of a novella.

So a title that is between say 20,000 and 50,000 words would pretty much be considered a novella by most people. Thats like 70 - 175 pages which the author can do a lot more with than less space.
Books for $0.99 (897 new)

2802 Hmmm, as an author I find this question very interesting. It takes a special gift to write a good short story... not sure I have it. As a reader I prefer a novella length to full length novel.

That being said, I love shorter dialogues (like plato) as well as shorter mythological stories or proverbs, so maybe i need to think more about short stories.

I think a poll would be intersting with this question to get some quantifiable info.. ok so Im goint to toss a poll out there. Hit the poll section about 5 minutes from now if you want to cast a vote!

Cheers
