Mondays with Mel and Explanation of KDP Select

Happy Monday Morning! I know a lot of people groan at the thought but as someone who is self-employed, I usually work 7 days a week. I schedule days off, but a lot of time, there is something that pops up. I did a little Q & A on my FB page a couple weeks ago and decided to try doing it every first Monday of the month. If there is enough interest, I will start doing it every week, but right now, it’s just that first Monday. So, if you want to ask me something about my books, appearances, writing…head on over to my FAN PAGE and ask.

I have had a few questions about some of my reissues not being on Nook. Some of them are, but after looking at the data, I realized that I wasn’t breaking even on sales. After several months. So, while I was in the middle of my iron treatments and such, I decided to make it easier on myself to just put them in KDP select. I can upload a book there without paying someone to format it and I can earn money on people borrowing the book. More money than I was getting on other sites. To put the book in KDP select, I have to give Amazon exclusive rights. I probably won’t keep it in there forever, it renews every 90 days, but for right now, that’s where they are going to be for the next few months. To earn money off them, keeping them on Amazon makes sense for me. I know that upsets some Nook readers, but I have to look at costs, etc, and this works out better. All of my new releases will be released in regular distribution.

  1. Whatever works for you is good. Nook readers can always download Kindle Cloud or Kindle for PC and read the books there.

  2. I agree with Becki if it works for you, I’m all for it. One question what exactly is KDP, I don’t have a clue.

  3. I, for one, am disappointed about Amazon having exclusive rights to some of your books. I refuse to purchase anything from them. I hope your books eventually make their way to other Ebook sellers that will allow you to make a profit on them.
