I’ve put Kraken into the KDP Select program on Amazon. This means it’s free to read if you’re a member of Kindle Unlimited.
I had conflicted feelings about this, because I know many readers, like me, want to support an alternative option to Amazon, and one that offers a variety of formats. Plus, Smashwords is DRM-free, which is a big hairy deal.
However in the last six months I sold 17 copies of Kraken on Smashwords. Don’t get me wrong: that’s 17 more copies than I ever thought I’d sell for cold, hard cash (or for an intangible, somewhat imaginary, socially-agreed-upon concept of “money”, for that matter). But it does mean I don’t feel like I’m depriving the masses of their right to tentacle porn by making it an Amazon-exclusive title.
So anyway *shrugs* I thought, let’s try it, yeah? If you are a member of Kindle Unlimited, or you have a friend who is, the adventures of Cy and Will are available to read for no money down, no future payments, no credit, no chargebacks.
