[Kindle Unlimited] – Some answers

by Britt Malka on July 22, 2014

Yesterday, I wrote to you to tell you about the opportunity I thought Kindle Unlimited was. You can read my mail here:

http://brittmalka.com/kindle-unlimited-doom-or-opportunity/

I received some great questions from a friend and subscriber. Let's just call him G. And I'll bring his questions here as well as my answers. I hope they'll help you, too.

"While during the past few days my email box has been "bombarded" by messages about this new Amazon's promotional Kindle program, your email is the first and only one that explained in clear details the relevant points to consider."

Thank you

I could say more about it, but the email is already long.

I'm wondering how it will affect popular authors like Leighann Dobbs, but I guess time will tell.

[Kindle Unlimited] – Doom or opportunity?

by Britt Malka on July 20, 2014

By now, you've probably received and read the email from Amazon about Kindle Unlimited.

I got it Friday afternoon, shortly before Shabbat, but I had time to listen to some of the debate in a Kindle group I'm in.

"OMG, I'm out of KDP now."

"Amazon just killed KDP."

"This is horrible for authors."

Yes, even some of the big guys panicked...

What is it all about?

"Kindle Unlimited is a subscription that offers you unlimited access to over 600,000 Kindle books and over 2,000 audiobooks with Whispersync for Voice. You can keep up to ten books at a time and there are no due dates."

Authors will be paid from the KDP Select Global Fund. Historically, authors have been paid around $2 per book that was borrowed through that system.

July 16, 2014

Yesterday, I bought a product called "Psychological E-mail Writing Formula" because it’s an area I love to discover more about.
I know that chances are you don’t have a list, so I decided not to tell you about this product, but…
While I was watching the bonus video, I thought of you.

[Dimesale] – Erica Stone: The Monetized Life

Rockets over Haifa

July 11, 2014

This morning, 3:24 am, I woke up to the sound of a siren.
Nah, it couldn’t be…
I woke up my husband (who claims he was awake, but I he wasn’t) because even though rockets have been raining down over Israel more than normally recently, then here? At Haifa?
We both listened.
There could be no other reason for [...]

There are a few things I disagree with Google and a huge part of humanity about.
One of them is video.
I find it highly overrated, and I prefer to read rather than watch.
But what can you say?
The facts are that:

Forrester Research has reported that: "The chances of getting a page 1 listing on Google increase 53 [...]

Scared

July 4, 2014
Thumbnail image for Scared

I’m terrified by escalators.

Pure panic

Normally, I avoid them, but sometimes it’s not possible.
Like back in January where we visited our son in Tel-Aviv…
No choice… I had to take the escalator up, so I bumped up on the first step, my heart pounding so loud that I could hear nothing but "boom boom" myself.
I was breathing [...]

[Kindle] Join the number’s game

July 1, 2014

How ambitious are you?
Do you want to join the growing number who makes a comfortable sum of money with Kindle books?
I’ve always believed that it was a number’s game.
The more books you put up there, the better your chances of getting a winner. Or two… or three…
In other words, if you only publish one book, [...]
