For those who don’t know, QuarterReads is a site where readers can buy short stories for only a quarter. What’s great for the authors of these stories is that $0.22 goes to the author. Usually, it seems like for other sites the pay ratio is the opposite of that. In addition, if you really enjoyed a story, you can tip the author $0.25, $0.50, or $1.00. If you are interested in reading great short stories – and helping out their authors – I highly recommend you checking out QuarterReads. This may be a bit biased, but here are six stories I suggest you take a look at. 😀
