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.
