Amazon Unveils Kindle Singles Category: 30-90 Page eBooks

Today Amazon unveiled a new eBook format, Kindle Singles. While no examples are being sold on the site yet, the bookseller hopes “serious writers, thinkers, scientists, business leaders, historians, politicians and publishers” will contribute shorter works.

Here’s more from eBookNewser: These new books, which are categorized as between 10,000 and 30,000 words –or about 30-90 pages– will have their own section in the Kindle Store and be priced less than a typical eBook. Amazon did not yet say how much these works would cost, but perhaps $.99 –the typical price of an iTunes single– would be too low.”

Kindle Content VP Russ Grandinetti had this statement: “Ideas and the words to deliver them should be crafted to their natural length, not to an artificial marketing length that justifies a particular price or a certain format,” said , Vice President, Kindle Content. “With Kindle Singles, we’re reaching out to publishers and accomplished writers and we’re excited to see what they create.”

What do you think? As eBookNewser notes, at least one author has already tried the single format.
