I met Irvine Welsh yesterday!
I am looking for advice/opinions on short stories. I am putting together a short story compilation e-book and I’m not sure how many words is acceptable. I don’t mean that I want to abide by any literary rules but rather I wondered what’s the least amount of words a reader would deem acceptable, given they will have parted with money for the book?
I am still some way off actually publishing the stories so I’m thinking ahead a little.
I don’t know if there is such an expectation but thought I would check beforehand. I wouldn’t like to gain a reputation for short-changing people.
Does anyone have any experience of short story e-books, whether it is as a writer or a reader?
I would love to hear from you.
