A great blog post to balance the media hysteria surrounding the new payment scheme for books borrowed through Kindle Unlimited.
KINDLE UNLIMITED ENROLLMENT NUMBERS
With the July 1, 2015 changes to Kindle Unlimited comes much anxiety among KDP Select authors.
But before you press your PANIC button, maybe you should consider this novel idea: Check the numbers.
That’s exactly what I did, and you can, too:
- Visit Amazon’s homepage.
- Hover your mouse over Shop by Department, then hover over Books, and select Kindle Books.
- See the number listed with the Kindle Unlimited filter.
- Click the Kindle Unlimited filter. Now check the numbers in the categories.
- Copy/paste the numbers of interest into Microsoft Word, for example.
I did that on July 1, and I’ve done that periodically for several months so that I can compare the numbers.
There is a lot of talk about authors possibly leaving Kindle Unlimited, but you don’t have to guess. The data is in plain sight.
ARE AUTHORS LEAVING KINDLE UNLIMITED?
