The May 2012 payout to self publishers participating

Print on Demand and ebook publishing

The May 2012 payout to self publishers participating in the Select program for the Kindle Owners Lending Library dropped from $2.48 per borrow in April to $$2.26 in May. I wasn’t particularly surprised since the number of eBooks borrowed during the month rose unexpectedly, after falling steadily since the program was introduced.

I don’t know if this means that Amazon sold a whole bunch of new Kindles and Kindle Fires in April, perhaps Mother’s Day presents, or if it’s a natural rhythm nobody has spotted yet since the select program only began in December of last year.

As I wrote in a my current self publishing blog this week, the next month will be a real test for Select as the Harry Potter books are added to KOLL. But no point repeating myself.
