Just what price to you set for a short story?

The answer is – there really isn’t an answer.

It gets debated a lot but a concrete answer never gets settled on.  One of the big challenges is that there are plenty of people out there who offer novels at $0.99, or even for free, and of course then readers ask why should they buy a short story when they can get a full length novel instead?

I’d say because short stories are better, but I may be accused of bias.

For myself I go the following way.

Novels at $2.99

Novellas and novelettes near novella length at $0.99

Short story/novelette collections (2-3 stories) at $0.99

Short story/novelette collections (8-10 stories) at $2.99

But what works for one person doesn’t always work for everyone.
