So you're thinking of writing a story or are in the middle of doing so and you're trying to figure out how to get it out to the world. You no doubt enjoy reading yourself and have recently tried or have a digital reading device of your own. Then the answer is right in front of you!
Amazon's Kindle, the Barnes and Noble Nook and other e-ink devices have made reading on electronic devices a common way to read. And with the iPad and tablet devices, more people are reading eBooks than ever. And because eBooks are so easily accessible on these devices, people are exploring all kinds of genres and trying various titles they wouldn't normally go to a regular store for.
There's never been a better time for writing a novel and finding an audience for it. The Kindle and Amazon's marketplace has made it possible for independent writers to self-publish and get their work in front of people who love to read. Even novellas and series-based stories have been very popular for readers just because of the fact that it's so simple to get titles instantly on their device.
Short stories have never had a better format than as digital ebooks. With the advent of viral videos as entertainment, people enjoy getting their entertainment in bite-sized pieces. As an author, a short story is also a great way to explore what you write about and get feedback on your work sooner compared to longer-form writing.
If you have visuals that go with your story, digital devices and eBooks allow for that as well. The improvement in technology for tablet devices is making visuals look better and better, comparable to the quality printing we are used to. For children's books, tablets are great for kids to engage with.
As more people have been reading comics in recent years, more of them are selling as they become easily accessible on digital devices. If you're a comic creator, this is the perfect time to publish your own comics. From a graphic novel to web comics, across all genres – superhero comics, alternative press, manga, etc. People are exploring the different ways they enjoy their stories and comics are getting the attention they deserve!
Telling stories for specific genres has always been a great way for authors to build a regular audience for their stories. Whether it's crime and mystery, romance, sci-fi and fantasy, adventure, etc. If there is a particle genre you enjoy writing, once you make a fan from the first story they read, it's guaranteed they'll come back for the rest of your library of work.
