August 23, 2005's New Venture Given The Short Shift By Seth Godin

Seth Godin writes about the announcement that is going to charge $0.49 per short story, and he does not like the idea. I disagree with Seth, I think that while short stories or fact articles may not work for Seth in the marketing field. I believe that shorts really work for fiction authors. If we did not have short stories many of Charles Dicken’s stories would have not come to light.

I also think that short stories are a great way for authors to start a word of mouth campaign about their writing and get paid for it. Look at online music and short exerts from artists, customers try out the music and then go back to buy more if they like what they hear, I think the same applies for writing. Well it does not really matter what Seth or I think, the market will decide.
