Amy Tan Says Writing For Digital Medium Is ‘Liberating’

Author Amy Tan published her first e-xclusive story this week as part of digital imprint publisher Byliner.com’s new fiction series.

The author talked to The Sacramento Bee about writing the short story “Rules for Virgins” for the digital medium. She said: “This is the first story I’ve directly written for e-publication, and I found the form liberating because there was no word-length limitation. I likely will do more.”

The story came out on December 5th and costs $2.99. GalleyCat explains more: “Readers can find it in the Amazon Kindle Singles store, at BarnesAndNoble.com, as a Quick Read in Apple’s iBook store and in the Google eBookstore. According to the company, this will be Tan’s first fiction publication in six years. Tan’s new novel, The Valley of Amazementwill be published by HarperCollins’ Ecco imprint.”
