For the budding writers

Amazon shorts is a new service where users can buy short, previously unpublished works (2,000 - 10,000 words, fiction or nonfiction) to read immediately from authors.

I don't know how useful this is to all of you, but I suspect it could be a nice vehicle for selling all the wonderful short pieces of work you write to keep in practice - so long as they aren't published elsewhere.

[EDIT]
Found by humourcide:
"We are accepting work from a diverse group of authors. In order to be eligible for participation you must be a published author with at least one book currently for sale on Amazon.com."

So I guess that's less helpful than I thought, although elanya at least should qualify.

Bum.
Still, it's worth asking if they plan to open this up to non-published writers.

I don't know if I would - it isn't under my name... it might. I could ask, anyway :V really it is a way for them to sell more of their books, I expect!

Hmmm dunno, I'm in Something Wicked which is SOLD on Amazon, but it's a short story and not a book, so I guess I don't qualify. But it's a good idea, I'll tell Em's brother who's on there too.
