A VERY detailed and informative article 😀
I recently began a new blog series, Writing and Publishing Tips From Authors Around the World, to help writers. The twenty-fourth contribution to this series is by U.S. author Hadena James with her new article about the importance of diversifying your retailers. Hadena has written and published nineteen books in four series. Stay tuned for more great articles by Hadena! Coming soon!
How To Diversify Your Retailers by Hadena James
I am a huge proponent of not just publishing to Amazon (even if your book is only $0.99). In one year, I more than tripled my sales by using other distributors. However, I often hear two things:
1. I won’t earn more money outside KDP Select.
2. I have no idea where to start.
Here’s how the royalties break down:
Amazon 35% for $0.99-$1.99, 70% for $2.99 and higher.
B&N 40% for $0.99-$1.99, 65% for 2.99 and higher.
