I confused Kindle KDP and Kindle Unlimited the other day. Here is the scoop on these two programs from Amazon. ❤

  1. I’m not sure whether the article got to whether it was bad or not for either of the programs. I understand they’re saying if your pages aren’t all read you don’t get paid or if the book isn’t read until six months later, there’s a postponement on the monies. But in the long run, if these drive the titles to the bestseller lists and get your story noticed, won’t that bring readers to your other titles?

    1. That is the thing. The article said that bestseller books aren’t in Unlimited. Truthfully, I see no plus for authors to use Unlimited. It’s all in the profit margins.

        1. All I know is that none of the authors I know have opted in on Universal. Since the changes the amount you make is minimal.

      1. I think that unlimited is great for authors if you are using it to drive initial reviews. If you are focused on only the amazon platform it make sense to use it to get as many reviews as possible in the start and then take the book off Unlimited at a later date if you really want to. The only time I wouldn’t use Unlimited is when publishing on multiple platforms.

    1. It is something to continue to explore. As it stands right now, I see nothing that would prompt me to list my book in Unlimited. I will continue to search for more information on this subject. ❤
