To Do KDP Select, or Not
I have been having a hard time making a decision.
So now... I come to you.
Have you heard of it?
If you an avid e-reader, or indie author, no doubt you have. It is Kindle's newest platform. Through KDP Select, ebooks are available in a lending library. A fund is set each month, and depending on how many times your book is borrowed, you get a portion of that fund. There are options to set your book to free for promotional periods, and Select helps to publicize your book more than before.
I think the only downside is that if you choose to do KDP Select, you cannot e-publish your book anywhere but Kindle.
The only other location you can digitally get PN at the moment is Nook. And to be honest, I make much more sales via Kindle than Nook any day. It wouldn't affect me much in that way. But I could lose some potential Nook readers.
So, should I do it?
As I said, I may lose potential Nook readers. But at the same time, I could pick up many more Kindle readers in the process. Decisions... decisions decisions decisions...
I am looking for your opinion. Please... do share!
