Dark Space Coming to Kindle Unlimited

Hello everyone! I'm in the middle of a very tight writing deadline for Dark Space V: Avilon (Coming soon!), so I'll make this quick.

I've decided to make all of my books a part of Kindle Unlimited. The only reason they aren't already, is because I wanted to try selling my books on other retailers, such as Barnes and Noble and iBooks. For those of you who don't know, Amazon only allows authors to make their books a part of Kindle Unlimited if those books are exclusively sold by Amazon.

I've now decided that the financial upside of reaching a larger market is not enough for me to keep my books out of Kindle Unlimited. There are simply too many readers jumping on board with this subscription service.

I've watched Kindle Unlimited become increasingly popular, and I believe it will only continue to grow. As far as I'm concerned, the future of e-books is Amazon Kindle. They've been so effective at crushing their competition, and at rewarding both their readers and authors, that I don't see much hope for ePub as format, or for non-kindle e-readers. That's probably a controversial view, and maybe those other retailers will never go extinct, but Amazon will continue to dominate the market as long as they keep putting their customers and business partners (authors) happy.

So, with no further adieu, within a month (the time it will take to de-list all of my titles from other sellers), you can expect to get all of my books, present and future, from your Kindle Unlimited subscription.

Happy reading everyone!
