Goodbye to KDP with New Publisher Contract
I have been so busy these last few days I’ve barely had a moment to blog, so now I’m ready to grab a moment to sit, take a deep breath, and update you on my latest shenanigans.
Well, it’s been an exciting week. Shortly after my interesting excursion to the “Amazon Academy” event, I was given the chance to join a publishing team by the name of Charlotte Greene. After some discussion it looks like a good opportunity for my books which thus far are distributed by Amazon and benefitting from their KDP select agreements. Currently, I am in the middle of looking at the contractual terms of this new proposal which includes having my current three title’s re-published and in the publisher’s catalogue by the Autumn.
As I understand it, ( and I doubt this is an instant procedure) but the doors open to my books being made available in Waterstones, B&N, Blackwells to name a few. Basically, the physical world book shackles and restrictions are off! On the flip side of this deal, I will have to opt out of the Kindle Unlimited and Kindle Edition Normalised Pages Read (KENP) deal that I currently have, and are contributing to my monthly Amazon income.
But alas, I’m all for the excitement of new ventures and as we know when one door shuts, another opens. My books will still be available on Amazon and I will still benefit from those sales whilst the novels are re-published as second editions under the new publisher’s imprint.
Watch this space. I hope to come up for air soon again after the next marathon sprint of paperwork.
