Kindle Singles

I just realized I've made exactly three posts in one year.  Not so hot.  Can't promise I'll be better, but I have gotten more writing done of late.  While I fear I'm always going to have incomplete projects, I have turned my focus for the time being to short stories.

Have you heard of Kindle Singles?  This is Amazon's short collection of fiction, articles, essays and just about anything else that doesn't fit traditional genres.  I figure, what the heck? It's not self-publishing because they have their own criteria and editorial staff to select what they sell.

And, they sell it.  From between 99 cents to 3 or 4 dollars and from what little research I've done it looks like the author gets a say, if not complete control over price.

So I'm working on some short stories to supplement my growing list of published titles.  I've had a bit more success in the last year as well.  Check them out over there----------------------->

So what do you think?  Is Kindle Singles the way to go, or do you know a better way?

Hey, if Kraft Singles can be a marketplace leader, why not Kindle Singles.

Seriously, I have no idea. So much of Kindleword is free (including my book) I just don't know how the pay-for-content part of it will ever succeed.

Meantime, I'm still trying to figure out what is this "major airline nobody's ever heard of" that you fly for.
