I finished but have not submitted by fifth short story of the year. I've been looking for an appropriate market, but haven't found one yet. This is what happens when I write a story without a specific market in mind.

For the no obvious market stories---Do you ever contemplate publishing them via Kindle? Either as a single story or with a couple of others.

This story's too short to sell as a stand-alone via Kindle, and I haven't enough other unsold stories like it to bundle it into a collection.

On the other hand, I have done this with other stories. The Spicy Confessions series I released as Rolinda Hay consists of bundles of four or five stories each. Most are original unsold confessions mixed with a few reprints. Sales are sluggish. The combined sales of all four titles: 34.

That did nothing to make me feel hopeful.
