Amazon has unveiled a new initiative dubbed “Kindle Singles” – snacky novellas or essays from thought leaders. The mini-books will range from 10,000 to 30,000 words and will be priced considerably lower than full-length titles.

Amazon describes Singles as being “twice the length of a New Yorker feature or as much as a few chapters of a typical book”. The company says its looking for serious writers, thinkers, scientists, business leaders, historians, politicians and publishers to help fill its ranks.

The company has not yet announced a specific price range for the Singles. If you’ve got something you think should make the cut, fire it to digital-publications@amazon.com for consideration.
