Why is Amazon KDP Select not the best fit for my books?
Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) or Kindle Select is a program run by Amazon. This is where authors and publishers publish exclusively with Amazon, otherwise, Amazon gives price consequence with loss on royalties. This ecosystem works well for some kind of books. However, most New York Times or USA Today bestsellers are published on all possible platforms.
Publishing on one platform exclusively could be an easy answer to many publishing topics and issues. But if your goal is to build your publishing business for the long term, we recommend something different. For the long term, it is better to rely on more partners.
With PublishDrive, published authors earn 2x more with our wide network. This is a good reason to start exploring other markets!
Publishing on other platforms can be overwhelming and you can make a lot of mistakes. But, it is worthwhile if you decide to commit to a wider audience globally. PublishDrive is your partner for that. Publishing with PublishDrive on global markets is a long-term game, just like your publishing business.
