Previously, the online retail giant paid those authors who published via the Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) on the basis of how many times their books were borrowed. Under the new plans, scheduled to come into force on July 1st, authors will now see their income based on how many pages of their books were read by borrowers.
The move has been welcomed by eBook authors with a dedication to creating quality content who feel that the new system encourages the better written books which would otherwise have been paid the same as those deemed to be more poorly written; if a reader begins a book but decides they don’t like it and stop reading early on, the author will earn less than if the reader loved the book and read to the end.
For more information about the new payment system, you can find a detailed explanation in this Amazon announcement.
For those of you who are already established eBook authors, you have the potential to earn more money from your work but if you haven’t yet branched out to electronic publishing and you have found yourself surrounded by hard copy work, we have a solution.
