5 Stephen King Kindle Titles for Less Than $4 Each Including a Timely Piece on Guns for Just 99 Cents

Amazon.com today announced that the best-selling and iconic author Stephen King has published a personal essay — “Guns” — available exclusively in the Kindle Store as a Kindle Single. This essay highlights one of the compelling features of Kindle Singles—they allow top authors to publish their works quickly. “Guns” is available now, and exclusively to Kindle customers in the Kindle Singles Store for $0.99

“I think the issue of an America awash in guns is one every citizen has to think about,” said King. “If this helps provoke constructive debate, I’ve done my job. Once I finished writing ‘Guns’ I wanted it published quickly, and Kindle Singles provided an excellent fit.” 

“It’s exciting to offer a way for a brilliant writer like King to publish quickly, and to reach a large audience of loyal readers and new customers,” said David Blum, editor of Kindle Singles. “King finished this essay last Friday morning, and by that night we had accepted it and scheduled for publication today.” 

Like all Kindle books, Kindle Singles are “Buy Once, Read Everywhere”—customers can read them on their Kindle, on the web with Kindle Cloud Reader and on free Kindle reading apps for Android, iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Blackberry, Windows Phone, Windows 8, PC and Mac. 

Launched in 2011, Kindle Singles are typically between 5,000 and 30,000 words. Too long for a magazine article and too short for a book, Kindle Singles allow ideas to be expressed at their natural length. Writers can learn more about submitting their work for consideration here.

Here at Kindle Nation Daily, we’re glad to see a bestselling author like King showing increasing signs that he and his various publishers (including himself!) that he gets the fact that readers should not have to pay exorbitant prices for Kindle books. Of all his full-length books in English on Kindle, the only title currently priced above $9.99 is the pre-order for Doctor Sleep, his September release revisiting the characters and territory of The Shining.

 And although many of King’s most ardent fans love him as the master of the 1100-page narrative, here are four shorter tomes that come in at prices anywhere from $1.99 to $3.79:
