So maybe you have the ability to write something really well
Kindle Singles is full of some short fiction and nonfiction that really puts condensed ideas out there, for you to read for only 99 cents.

And interestingly enough, they are accepting submissions. The fine print here being that it has to be a work from somewhere between 5,000 and 30,000 words. So more than a magazine article, but less than a book.I was thinking of writing a proposal to amazon about something I could write for them. And if your piece is chosen what a great way to get some exposure.

So check it out.
