To KU, Or Not To KU? That Is The Question.
Almost one year ago, I made the decision to pull all of my books off of Amazon Kindle Select, and give it a try making them available on all vendors. What this meant to you, my awesome readers, is that my books would no longer be available on KU (Kindle Unlimited), but they would be available on iBooks, Nook, and Kobo—among others. The decision was not an easy one to make (I agonized over it for a good month), but my thinking at the time was that I wanted my books to be available to everyone, not just Amazon readers.
So, here we are a year later, (yes, I know, I can't believe it's been that long either), and I have been re-thinking my decision to pull my books off of Kindle Select. To be completely transparent here, I just don't get a lot of sales on the other vendors. And I think that's because Amazon, and particularly Kindle Unlimited, are where the readers are for my genre. Romance readers are voracious, as I know, because I'm one of them. They go through 2, 3, 4 books a week, sometimes more. So KU makes sense for romance readers.
That being said, as of today, my books are all back on KU. I sincerely apologize to any readers I have gained on these other venues, but I have to do what's best for my business. And this is a business for me. It's how I make my living and pay my bills. At some point I may decide to publish wide again. It all depends on the market, but for now I'm staying on KU.
Thank you all, so much, for your continued support and readership!
I am so grateful for all of you.
