Kindle Unlimited

I’m sure, if you follow independently published authors, you’ve probably heard this before.

I won’t go into great detail on how I’m not convinced this is the best way to hand down royalties to authors. It would work if everyone was online all the time, but not everyone is, so pages get missed, etc…

Off my soapbox…

I’m thinking of pulling all of my novels from Kindle Unlimited. Yes, I make some money, and that’s great, but if the pages read are not accurately calculated then it does little good for the author.

What are your thoughts on KU? Do you prefer picking up an unknown author via KU, or do you like to download the sample and judge the book that way? Would you be less inclined to purchase a book if it is not also available on KU?

Thanks for your help.
