KDP Select Update

So, the figures for the first month are in, and according to Amazon there was an overall total of 295,000 borrows. Which means that for each borrow an author earned $1.70.

Amazon have increased the pot for January by another $200,000 giving a grand total of $700,000 to be shared among all the borrows.

Most of you will remember that I put Breath of the Earth (the good book) onto the Select programme. I used two of my free days, which seemed to generate some interest, with 350 total downloads over those two days. While this is nice, it’s nowhere close to Again, which massed over a thousand on it’s first free day.

I think that the difference here is that Again was listed in a popular genre, while Breath of the Earth doesn’t contain a single vampire, werewolf or angel.

That said, since BOTE offer ended, there has been a renewed interest in it, with a handful of sales each day.

I’m planning on using another free day next week, hoping to get some more downloads from all those folks who got a Kindle for Christmas.

Until then.
