I’m roughly a month into my first month of Kindle Select and I have been diligently recording details of my progression so that I may provide a detailed report at the end of the 90 day period. During this time, I’ve been keeping track of KDP Select’s Lending Library payout announcements from Amazon and calculating the numbers to see whether my participation in KDP Select puts me at an advantages or a disadvantage. I did a KDP Select Terms and Conditions post a few weeks back which covered the legal pros and cons of the KDP Select program. Today, I wanted to cover the numbers side of the game.
Breaking it down as simple as you can go, the following people are the types who will likely benefit the most from participating in KDP Select:
1) If you are a new author looking to try to get some exposure in the market place.
2) If you price your books under the $2.99 (70% royalty) threshold.
3) If you are Amazon.com
