Amazon’s new Select Program, Kindle Unlimited launched in late July.
The initial response from indie authors seemed to be panic. I read a lot of negative words flying around the interwebs at the time, especially on kboards.
Some people however, took to the challenge of the new sales tool and have reported good success. There is still a lot of people unhappy with the program with a large number of authors reporting their sales dropping heavily since it’s launch.
Now we are a few months in, I thought it would be interesting to get the SPRT listeners opinions on the program.
Have you noticed sales dipping?
Have you tried KU for yourself?
How is that going, if so?
Is Amazon evil? (okay maybe don’t answer that one)
I’d love to hear from you guys now we’ve had a while to let the program set in.
I also thought I’d share some of the better posts on the program (for and against) that I’ve read since it’s release.
