I received an email today from Amazon. They wanted to inform me that two of my digital books were also found on Barnes & Noble and needed to be removed. I knew they were there and had read the KDP Select information when it first came out, but I didn’t pay much mind to it. It seems they are cracking down on this and contacting authors to enforce it.
Did I take them down?
Absolutely. Amazon has been my main source of sales, publicity, and promotion, and the B&N guys just aren’t as popular. Even my own readers report they either have Kindles or use Amazon’s software compatible offerings, and most say they prefer Amazon for a majority of all of their purchases (of any kind — not just books). So with all of this in mind, it makes sense to remain exclusively on Amazon. Their free promotions alone got three of my books in front of over 700 readers, and that’s something difficult to do on my own.
