I used Bat Dude in a recent story just to avoid that particular pitfall. Better to play it safe. Readers will know what you mean.

Because of this, I've been hesitant to attempt a short-adventure-of-the-week series, featuring the same characters in the same world.

I actually write a short story and offer it for free weekly on my blog. THey range from 1000-4000 words. It's called Wilson's wednesday. I'm writing this weeks at the moment.

I will be the first to admit that my first couple of title had serious issues. Poor editing, formatting, and cheap covers however I did fix them. I have said publicly on 3 podcasts the same thing. Over half the reviews on my book 1 are god awful and to that effect. Most are about length. Not story. Many like the story. They like the progression and the frequency of publication. One thing to take into account is I put a new one out at least once a month. In august I had 3! I am very busy. Writing is hard. My covers past book 4 are original in most of their aspects. I have 2 books 2&3 and my trilogies that are stock art. Even the big boys use stock art. The trilogies make me laugh because author Mackey Chandler just used the same one I do and his new book looks exactly like my 3 trilogies. Great minds and all that. It is possible to make money in short fic without it being a scam. I just paid the IRS four figures so that is validation. We should be supporting each other as authors not tearing each other down or pointing fingers. A really good friend and fellow author gave me some really good advice when I first started doing this. YOUR BOOK YOUR BUSINESS  I try to live by it and help anyone who asks in my own group. Later

Maybe the publishers/authors simply have...gasp...people willing to pay for their books?

There are people who spend $8 on a cup of coffee. Just because I personally wouldn't do that doesn't mean others won't if they perceive a value in it.

Assuming they are actual real stories, it bothers me that some people just assume anyone doing well at a price above 99 cents must be doing something shady. People buy for reasons other than low price all the time. That is why things like $12 tubes of toothpaste exist.


Thank You Julie. It is about perceived value. When I got into this art of writing I broke all the rules. Short fiction? $2.99? Actual sales? Crazy talk! But it worked. Regardless of what people think, I did zero advertising or click farms or anything against TOS for books 1-4. Why is it when someone does something good that people on here try to tear them down and accuse them of breaking the rules? I did my first FB ad for book 5. Three easy step to making it work. 1. Kick ass cover the best one you can get. 2. Good plot located on the first page. DOn't make the reader search for it. 3. frequency. Publish your books in a timely manner.  That is pretty much it. Yes many of my titles have crappy reviews. I dont care. I really don;t read them. most are upset with the length- but they still buy the next one regardless. Book 1 (Forgotten Engineer) is the title they love to hate. Everyone slams it but they still buy. It came out on Feb 18 2016 (this year) I have revised it 4 times. Its better, cleaner and reads better. DId I make it longer? Nope. in 7 months it's sold 2,222 copies with 250,000 pages read. Right now I have my shortest ever title up. I wrote it as a prequel, a tease at a new series I'm working on. I wrote 3 chapters in 24 hours, dropping each chapter to my editors as fast as I wrote them. 10,000 words. I bought a pre-made cover and slapped it together and uploaded it in less than a day. I spent more time on the title than I did the writing. It's now a #1 book in short fiction. Crazy.  that is what 20bks to 50k is all about btw. Authors helping each other to succeed.   Later.

I posted my new title. I had a wild hair to write a prequel for an upcoming book (oct) that i have yet to write. It was totally unplanned. I wrote three long chapters 10,000 words in under 24 hrs bought a pre-done cover and put it up on Amazon. As I wrote I dropped the chapters to my betas.  It came in at 55pgs so I did some thing I have never done before and sold it for 99cents. SO far I'm doing fairly well.

i dipped my toe into the paranormal world. I have a UF series starting up in OCT but this is sort of an intro to it. Instead of my weekly Free SF short Story I released a paranormal one.  https://tspaul.blogspot.com/2016/09/now-for-something-completely-different.html

I bought it an am still playing with it.  8)  SO far I like it. I keep a file of possible book ideas and I ran what I had thru it. The big Idea I had for next year is a not so much but by playing with keywords I found a possible money maker. So for me, that was worth the money. they have a 30-day money back deal. GIve it a shot.

Lots of Germans like to buy English books to improve their language skills.  I sell well in Germany without translated stuff

I was under the impression that this sort of thing was against the TOS? Not that I care about reviews

I would be willing to have a go at something like this. I write a lot of short fiction. Let me know the deadlines and the basics when you have them.
