Anyway, I heard about it and thought I'd hop in and check it out.
Although the program sounds good, what's up with the lower royalty payments? HUH? Why would I even consider something that pays less than the KDP program.
Something sounds a little fishy to me. Can anyone tell me why it would be worth losing out to higher royalty payments?
1500 so what.
AMS ads...so what
Oh, and only certain genres can apply.
Gee, that leaves out me. Well, maybe for some stuff I've written. Thought about it for five seconds.
I'm not sold. I won't ever be sold... Unless of course I get a movie deal out of it (we can all dream).
(five year deal? yeah like what really does that afford you? limited marketing, I'm sure, since amazon will own the rights).
If you are a good writer and know it: Stop leveraging lower prices for your labor. I mean really, stop it. If you're a great writer then people will buy your stuff. They'll become a fan. A true fan will be salivating as he or she waits anxiously for your next book.
At some point folks, you have to realize that you are worthe it.
Just think how horrified your fans would be to find out you weren't getting hardly what they were paying for. Icky.
I'd rather open my own site and let my fans donate what they thought my stuff was worthe. Just because you self publish does not mean it's unworthy. Actually, it means you care enough to do it right.
So, what do I have to say about this? Well, its an easy task.
Fans: Don't settle either. Writers trust your worthe. Readers enjoy our hard work. It's always been that way. Middle men just need to go!
But thanks to Amazon for providing a big platform for us newbies...without you, all would be lost. i love to share royalties with Amazon. They deserve it. But, why don't we just make the Kindle Scout program a little more worthy?
Fellow writers and readers: Love to you all and have a great night!
By the way
I don't even mind giving out my stuff for free. At least I know it's worth the read and worth the leads. Tomorrow you can get a copy of Inhumanity for free.
Because I enjoy writing not only for myself, but for you too!
