Amazon's New 70% Royalty Option

Great news for those who publish their own works on Kindle. The announcement was made on June 30th that books meeting certain criteria, including a price between $2.99 and $9.99, will receive a higher royalty rate or 70%.

This new option will benefit authors, such as myself, who have the returned rights on previously published books.

I also read somewhere that Amazon's digital sales had surpassed print book sales. Another sign that e-books are here to stay.

While I love print books, as my bookshelves can attest, I've been purchasing all e-books since buying a Kindle. My husband is grateful.

With options like this I would seriously consider the self-publishing route!

It's the perfect way for my out of publication books to become recirculated!

Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog! Always love to have new visitors and make new friends!

I own one of the big Kindles and love it! I have loads of books down loaded and read and more on the way as well as lots of reference materials and blogs!
