Kindle Library Rule Changes

Good news for writers of longer work with readers who see the book through to the end. Kindle have changed the rules relating to how writers get paid for loans from the Kindle library.

In the past writers got paid a share of the cash pot for every read past 10% of the book. The obvious response to that would be for writers to write short reads, or books that simply fell over past the 10% mark. It made no difference if the book was finished or not.

Now Kindle will pay based on the average number of pages read each month. Good writers, who have longer work that readers finish, will get more.
