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Amazon shorts is a new service where users can buy short, previously unpublished works (2,000 - 10,000 words, fiction or nonfiction) to read immediately from authors.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