Why do You Purchase Short-Story ebooks?
If you haven't heard, I'm having another short story of mine coming out this summer. It was a easy way for me to explore writing contemporary YA Romances.
With the ebook revolution the short story is making a BIG comeback. And I love it, and purchase many of them.
THE COMPANION short story:
This type of short ebook read is a companion short tease that is connected to the plot line of a larger full book series.
I usually will pick one of these up if I want to see if I may be interested in a series.
SHORT STORY SERIES:
I love these. I read these when I'm going to be at the Doctors office, or want to read on a lunch break. If there is more than one book in a short story series, I'll by the first one and if I like it, I'll purchase all of the rest that are readily available.They are follow the typical series flair. Either they are all about the escapades of one character, a continuation of the first book, or contain similar theme or settings.
These are part of a serial or soap opera type book. It ends with some resolved issues but also with a cliff-hanger. I tend to try out the first 2 and only stick with it up to 5 then I want resolution. But that's just me. These tend to do really well if done correctly.
DO YOU ENJOY THE SHORT STORY ebook offerings?
