Huffington Post: The Future of Indie Authors and Kindle Unlimited

Two Drops of Ink: A Literary Blog

Editor’s Note:

I found this article this morning as I was researching news about literary agents. Mark Coker is one of the founders of Smashwords.com, one of the best indie publishing platforms available. I have used both Smashwords and CreateSpace (Amazon’s self -pub), and both have their strengths; however, I would say Smashwords has the easiest interface with a huge list of retailers that will accept your book into their catalogs, if you follow the Smashwords publishing guide – which is free.

This post by Mark Coker looks at the future of indie publishing and some of the road blocks that are being put in place by big retailers like Amazon. He shows how KDP and KU are being used to gain back control of pricing from indie authors. This is well worth a read.
