Writing Short Fiction

In the indie community it’s often said that the best way to make money is to write novels, specifically in series of three or more books. But what about writing short fiction?

From short stories to novellas, there are several different types of short fiction. Each offers not only a different reader experience from a full-blown novel, but they are also a different art form to create. Join the guys as they discuss the ups and downs and writing and selling short fiction.

The Career Author Podcast is a podcast where co-authors J. Thorn and Zach Bohannon share their struggles and successes as full-time authors, advice for improving your writing craft, and honest discussions of what it takes to build a successful career as an author.

In this episode, you’ll discover:

  • The different types of short fiction
  • How writing short stories is different than writing a novel
  • Whether you should submit stories to publications
  • The difference in marketing short fiction versus novels

Also, Zach recommends a book about writing and marketing short fiction.
