Kindle Unlimited – Unleashed

The Netflix of books launched today! Welcome Kindle Unlimited. I guess.

I realize that sounds kind of cynical, and I guess it is. It isn’t a bad service, there are some well-known authors and great books on this thing. Tolkien was listed, as well as J.K. Rowling, Suzanne Collins, and many others. So I’m sure it’ll be a great value.

Disappointing though, that they chose to go the KDP Select route for self-published authors. Not surprising, but a letdown nonetheless. Maybe it’s the toll they extract for letting us publish on their platform for free. Although they DO cut a nice cut of the profits.

I applaud the arrival of another avenue for authors, any author, to be seen by the reading public at large. I do have to wonder how much ‘new’ exposure this will generate though for indie’s, because of the whole Select business. Time will tell, as it does.
