Amazon announced on April 13th a new writing opportunity for US writers
through their Kindle Direct Publishing program called Kindle Vella,
twisting the word “Novella” for fun.
Should you as an author try this platform?
Kindle Vella is structured with short (500–5000 words) episodes
and a "Token" payment system that authors receive 50% of the proceeds for
(though there is no clear information on what a token is worth).
Have you ever wished you had gotten in
at the start of the Kindle Books phenomenon?
Kindle Vella likely hopes to compete in securing intellectual property that has been tested,
that then can be turned into television series, films, and games.
Kakao, a major South Korean internet company is hoping to acquire Radish,
one of the largest serialized fiction apps used by independent authors,
and that has recently changed its payment terms to pay authors
significantly less for their work for the same reason.
