Joseph J. Wood (JosephJWood) | 6 comments Hi.

So I have a piece that's about 10,000 words. I figure this is too long to be sending out to short story magazines, for a couple of reasons. And the story itself shouldn't be cut down and shouldn't be any longer - it can't stretch to novel length.

So I figure I'd publish it myself as an ebook, which would be priced as "Pay What You Feel."

I'm pretty much set on this, so I was just wondering if anyone had any experience in any area of this. I've published a novel on Kindle myself so I have a little experience of publishing and marketing.

So what do people think?

Would be good to hear specifically about anyone's experience with PWYF e-book sites (both uploading and downloading) and any advice on reviewers (are there reviewers for 10,000 word books?) But any advice or ideas or anything is welcome. :)

A.J.L. Zarychta | 2 comments While I don't have any actual experience on this, I would be interested to see what others think as well. I have some short-ish things that I've done as background pieces for characters in a universe for which I have several books planned, but I can't really send them off anywhere.

Also, there would definitely be reviewers for a piece of that length. I've seen short stories or serials of that length on Amazon, and you can review anything there.
