Amazon Introduces Singles Classics

amazonFrom Amazon’s press release:

Kindle announced the launch of Singles Classics–a way to make iconic articles, stories and essays from well-known authors writing for top magazines and periodicals available in digital form, many for the first time. Readers can now enjoy easy access to hard-to-find and long-lost articles and stories written by some of their favorite authors. Singles Classics are priced from $0.99 and available for free to Kindle Unlimited subscribers. To discover Singles Classics visit www.amazon.com/singlesclassics.

Launching with more than 140 essays and stories, Singles Classics includes works from writers like Susan Orlean , Norman Mailer , Gloria Steinem, Lawrence Wright , Margo Jefferson , Gay Talese and Chang-rae Lee, and short stories from best-selling authors like John le Carré and Kurt Vonnegut. Singles Classics features memorable work originally published in celebrated magazines like TIME, Vanity Fair, The New YorkerRolling Stone, Esquire, The Atlantic and Playboy. From magazine cover stories that defined a generation, to award-winning articles that challenged the status quo and short stories by revered writers, Singles Classics pays tribute to the lasting power of the written word.

“Some writing is meant just for the moment, but much of it–the best of it–is worth reading and rereading,” said New York Timesbest-selling author Susan Orlean . “Singles Classics finally gives us a way to enjoy those timeless pieces. As a reader, I’m thrilled to have access to the stories that mattered the most to me and ones that I somehow missed the first time around. As a writer, this is a really exciting innovation. It’s a chance to revitalize past work, to introduce it to today’s readers, and to give it both new immediacy and a true permanence.”

“Today’s readers might never have the opportunity to discover great works like Ron Rosenbaum’s ‘The Secrets of the Little Blue Box,’ Marcelle Clements’ ‘The Dog Is Us’ or TIME Magazine’s legendary 1966 cover story ‘Is God Dead?,'” said David Blum , Editor of Kindle Singles. “With Singles Classics, we are making these seminal works easy to find and afford – by a student writing a term paper or by readers in search of short works by the writers they love.”

Kindle Singles launched in 2011 to showcase great fiction and nonfiction between 5,000 and 30,000 words – compelling ideas expressed at their natural length. Now with Singles Classics, readers have access to the articles and stories that have shaped decades of conversation and thought.

With Singles Classics, writers and publishers sell their previously published work via Kindle Direct Publishing , which will earn them up to 70% royalties from the sale of every copy and allow them to retain the rights to their work.

Customers can download and read Singles Classics on their Kindle E-readers, Fire Tablets, and the free Kindle app for iOS, Android, PC and Mac. To learn more about how Kindle helps you read anything, anytime, anywhere visit www.amazon.com/kindleapps.
