IAF Highlight: Should Indie Authors Go KDP Exclusive Or Go Wide
< 1 day ago
Ep#66: This week we’re showcasing the session between Pippa DaCosta and Susan Kaye Quinn. If you’re wondering about the pros and cons of being exclusive with KDP or going wide with as many retailers as possible, our show hosts will explain which model works best in different scenarios.
Susan is exclusively KDP and Pippa makes her books available in as many outlets as possible and they deliver insights and experience from both ends of the spectrum.
Topics Covered in this Fringe Highlight Session:
Perma-Free Book Promotion Strategy
Net Income on Kindle Select vs. Wide Distribution
Does your distribution model increase the risk of being pirated?
What are the benefits of a mixed distribution model?
Box Sets in Kindle Unlimited
Author Collaboration on Box Sets
Do the benefits of Wide vs. Kindle Select change depending on how many books you have out?
Pippa DaCosta @pippadacosta is a hybrid author. Before securing a traditional publisher, she published the Veil Series (a x5 book urban fantasy series) independently in 2014. She has also published two science fiction books, with more planned for 2016. Pippa is traditionally published with Bloomsbury and Random House Germany. Her work has been featured in the Galaxy Chronicles anthology, part of the Future Chronicles series. Pippa continues to independently and traditionally publish her work.
Susan Kaye Quinn @susankayequinn is a rocket scientist turned speculative fiction author. She writes young adult science fiction, with side trips into adult future-noir and sweet royal romance. Her bestselling novels and short stories have been optioned for Virtual Reality, translated into German, and featured in several anthologies.
