In 2016, Gregory Norris sold 54 short stories and 4 novellas. A full-time writer, Norris is interviewed on this week's Self-Publishing Podcast.
Whether you plan to write short fiction or not, this Friday's recommendation, Making Money with Short Stories with Gregory Norris, is well worth a listen. (If you want to skip the opening chitchat, start around 8:30, when Norris joins the podcast.)
Norris talks about paying markets for short fiction, writing a strong cover letter, how much you can earn at short stories, and how the form differs from novel writing.
