More Authors Upset With Amazon Kindle Unlimited

December 28, 2014



Kindle UnlimitedNow that we have a few months of payouts behind us in the Amazon Kindle Unlimited program, some authors aren’t as happy as they thought they would be. The payouts have been lower than folks were thinking. (Remember when I warned you about this?) Some of the popular authors are pulling out of the program. You can read some of the news here.


Authors with less name-recognition are faring better and are picking up new readers. Kindle Unlimited makes it less risky and expensive to try new authors. The picture looks even brighter for less-known authors, since the big names are dropping the program and lessening the competition.


Check out the books that are still in the Kindle Unlimited program.


As always, you are in charge of your own writing career. You need to weigh the options and make decisions that are right for you.

At the moment, my Kindle Unlimited recommendations still stand.

  • Put shorter books in Kindle Unlimited
  • Create more shorter series books
  • Bundle the series into a longer book that is not in the program
  • Keep a close eye on your statistics
