What do you think is minimum length to self-publish a book on Amazon? 50, 75, 100, more pages?

ANSWER:

There is no minimum length to self-publish. i just self-published a 51 page book. Blake Crouch just self-published a 10 page short story as a kindle book.

The world has changed. Instead of this being a “pick me” world its become a “I pick myself” world.

There’s a myth that a book has to be 200 pages. Publishers gave us this myth. But publishers don’t really exist anymore. They are zombies and they are slowly dying out.

Most books should be magazine articles. Most magazine articles should be short columns. Most short columns should be 140 character tweets. And most tweets should be silent.

Make the highest quality book you can, without thinking of word-count, and publish it.Sincere voices will always rise to the top.
