Post Buy e-books or subscribe to Kindle Unlimited?
Some authors enroll books in Kindle Unlimited so that subscribers can read it an no cost (beyond their subscription fee) and the author can still earn royalties, but Amazon's terms dictate that the book can only be available for sale from Amazon while it is enrolled in KU (3 month minimum). I am asking for feedback from readers about whether they are more likely to read a book if it is enrolled or if they are more likely to buy individual books. Maybe there is a price point where KU becomes more attractive?

As I am about to release a new novel, your feedback is appreciated. You can post here, or write me directly at writerpeugeot@gmail.com

Post Re: Buy e-books or subscribe to Kindle Unlimited?
I do both. I have a Kindle Unlimited subscription and buy e-books from Lybrary.com.

I like both, but the book itself has to catch my interest. With KU I am very selective as I hate to waste my time even though they are 'free' if that makes sense. E-books from a good site are also nice as the usually will hold your virtual library for you.

Some successful authors had blogs where they slowly released their material (after hooking their audience) with great results. See John Dies at the End as an example.
