EPISODE 26: Writing and publishing short fiction

Welcome to the Rage Against the Manuscript podcast. This episode is for you if you love writing short, but you don’t know what to do with your stories or how to fit short fiction into your writing career. I've loaded you up with ideas to get strategic about short fiction!


Listen on Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts.

In this episode:

  • Why short fiction is awesome and you should embrace the unique skills needed to write it.

  • How to define short fiction, and why the novellette is complete BS.

  • Seven zillion ideas on what to do with your short fiction as part of a wider author backlist.

  • How to build a successful author brand focusing entirely on short fiction.

  • Pricing short fiction for maximum sales and awesomeness.

    So many authors stress about pricing short fiction. It’s honestly not that hard. Take the price of longer fiction in your genre, whack off $1-2, there’s your price."
