Kindle Unlimited – Sorry, No.

Last month, Amazon announced Kindle Unlimited.  I would love to have my books available on Kindle Unlimited, because I think subscription services (Netflix for Ebooks) are the wave of the future, and are especially great for discovering new authors such as myself.  My books are already available on Scribd and Oyster.  Sadly, I can’t do it.  In order to have books on Amazon Unlimited, they have to be on Amazon Select, and therefore exclusive to Amazon.  I would have to pull my books from not only Scribd and Oyster, but also Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and iBooks (where I sell twice as many books as I do at Amazon).

For a much more detailed perspective on Amazon Select, read Mark Coker’s article on it here.  For a reader’s point of view about the availability of ebooks, read MrsJoseph’s blog post here.
