Update: I’m going all in. Everything except the novella’s should be on KU now, the novella’s will be on next week after I make some cover tweaks. It’s scary going Amazon exclusive, but I’m going to give it a good six months to see if it was the right decision or not.
As soon as I heard about Kindle Unlimited I felt giddy with excitement. A chance for readers to devour as many books as they want in a month? Sounds fantastic. While I can’t partake as a reader (it’s currently only available to US customers), I certainly can offer my books in the pool of reading choice.
But to do so, I have to enrol them in Kindle Select, which means they need to be exclusive to Amazon for the enrolment period (90 days at a time). I’ve not been a fan of amazon’s exclusivity clause before now, but this new program has got me excited enough that I’m going to test it out.
I’ll be enrolling everything except the Desperately Delicious series of short stories (Update: Desperately Delicious is in now, too). That means my novels: Trance, The Feathered Lover, Feathered Bliss & A Feathered Child will be included, as will my novella’s The Brute and In His Sails. Also the new novella’s in the Bad Boys series (coming over the next few months) will also be enrolled.
Depending on how well they do (or don’t do) I’ll decide after the 90 day period whether to keep them in or put them back up at the other stores (Update: I’m giving it six months to be fair). Obviously I need to see what is best for me financially, but I also need to know what is best for readers, too. So I don’t know if I’ll continue at this stage, but I’m quietly optimistic. The Kindle Unlimited program just feels like it’ll be a success.
What about you. Do you like the KU program?
