Question
If you publish a book that contains a collection of short children stories that are between 2,000 and four thousand words, how many are you supposed to publish in a book? Would putting three short stories be too little or should you put at least five in there.  You need to have at least 24 pages with createspace.com

Answer
Hello - that is totally up to the author. If you have a publisher, editors, or advisors, they can help you plan the collection. These days people sell collections, as well as single essays and single short stories on e-publishing sites. It just depends on what you have that might make a good collection. Or, if you just want to publish one story, that is your decision.
Best wishes, write back if you want to discuss further,
