A friend of mine likes to write but never seems to be able to finish writing a full length novel. He tops out around 7,000- 10,000 words. So he calls these his “short stories.”
I don’t know very much about writing and getting books published, but I wonder if there is any market for a collection of short stories? Or do those authors just sell their work to magazines?With printed newspapers and magazines going out of business all the time, is the market for selling short stories going to disappear, too?
