Kindle Unlimited also called KU is the “Netflix of ebooks.” It costs readers $9.99 a month to get unlimited access to over one million ebooks. So, is it a good idea for your book to be in Kindle unlimited?
To help answer this question we are going to talk with a true professional author. Writing is her day job. She’s up before the sun, putting words on the page before her kids wake up. The early writer publishes the book and she has published fifty books first with a big five publisher and then as an indie author. I am excited to welcome to the Novel Marketing Podcast, USA Today bestselling author Lacy Williams.
Now before we jump into the episode I should mention that Lacy has a free download of her ebook “the smart indie: basic publishing plan”. You can download it at www.lacywilliams.net/novelmarketing. We will also have a link in the show notes
