Really?

Good wisdom from Sarah Hoyt Amanda Green (CORRECTED – I originally misattributed this to Sarah since I found it on her Facebook) about the new Amazon / Kindle Unlimited royalty set-up. The old system over-rewarded short and episodic works.  The new set-up awards pay-outs based on page views, so short works and novels each receive a fair pay-out based upon their length.  Novels don’t get screwed over any more.

But some people see Amazon as evil and unfair, no matter what.  I see a well run business whose business model currently aligns with my publishing goals, therefore they are my friend.  Once that no longer applies, I’ll move on to something else.  Until then, I take the word of anyone who says Amazon is screwing me over with a hefty grain of salt.  Who should I believe?  Random internet author paid by a third-party publisher whose profits are affected by Amazon’s model?  Or the people that gave me tens of thousands of dollars for my pulpy fiction?

Really?.

    • Oooooooh. Whups. I arrived at that article from Sarah’s Facebook and directly linked from there. I didn’t see anything indicating it was Amanda’s. I’ll fix it! Thank you.
