As the debate over self-publishing versus traditional publishing rages, authors are quietly uploading their eBooks to websites such as Free-eBooks.net, Smashwords, Kindle Direct Publishing platform, and Lulu – to name a few.
I saw an article yesterday on the Guardian UK website in which Dalya Alberge discusses Ian Rankine’s suggestion that there be tax incentives given to new writers. Traditional publishing meant for authors an upfront advance on their book’s sales. An advance from your publisher 10 years ago could probably make a sufficient dent in your mortgage. These days, it might cover one month’s rent.
Amazon.com announced the Kindle Direct Publishers Select program on December 8th; at least, that was when I got the email. The email itself is typical KDP email, bland and featureless but the message it delivers sounds enticing. Let’s examine it in a little more detail.
On the face of the offer, you get to promote your book on Amazon.com for free for an unlimited number of 5 day periods throughout the time your book is enrolled in the KDP Select program.
Your book gets a share in a fund allocated by Amazon.com for all Select participants.
