Before too long I’ll be looking for home for my novella, “The Bazaar.” Kindle Singles seems like a great place to start. Basically, Kindle Singles fuses Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing service with an editorial process. It’s geared specifically toward material that doesn’t fit into conventional formats, like the novel.
From the Kindle Singles website:
Anyone can submit original work to Kindle Singles. We’ve showcased writing from both new and established voices–from bestselling novelists to previously unpublished writers.
We’re looking for compelling ideas expressed at their natural length–writing that doesn’t easily fall into the conventional space limitations of magazines or print books. Kindle Singles are typically between 5,000 and 30,000 words.
A Kindle Single can be on any topic. So far we’ve posted fiction, essays, memoirs, reporting, personal narratives, and profiles, and we’re expanding our selection every week. We’re looking for high-quality writing, fresh and original ideas, and well-executed stories in all genres and subjects.
Of course there’s still some revision left to be done. In the meantime I’ll be working up a pitch.
