Amazon Singles and The Atavist were two relatively early examples of the emergence of short-form content being monetized at prices that wouldn't work in the print supply chain. Apple has just announced a similar initiative called Quick Reads. In fact, when Kobo was created, it was called “Shortcovers” in anticipation of this trend which has, since then, gained steam. Short-form publishing challenges conventional book publishing economics but it offers opportunity to deliver timely content quickly and to satisfy authors, two objectives most publishers see as valuable. This is a subject we think every publisher needs to be thinking about and we’ll assemble a panel of people who have gotten started with it to discuss it.
