Amazon Announces “Kindle Single” Format

Amazon has released a new eBook length format called “Kindle Singles.”

A Kindle single is defined by Amazon’s press release as “Kindle books that are twice the length of a New Yorker feature or as much as a few chapters of a typical book.”

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.
