We have continued to see strong response from customers to Kindle Unlimited (KU) and are adding a bonus of $6.3 million to the previously announced base fund amount of $3 million, bringing the total fund to $9.3 million for the month of March.

To further highlight the KDP Select books that are most popular with customers, we will again award “KDP Select All-Stars” for March to the most-read authors and most-read titles in the U.S., U.K. and Germany. We’ll spotlight each All-Star author and title on applicable detail pages. These awards will come with financial bonuses and recipients will be contacted in the next few days. For more information on All-Stars, go here: https://kdp.amazon.com/help?topicId=A2X66QXB12WV2. Anyone with a title in KDP Select—even a debut author with a single title—can qualify if their work becomes a customer favorite.

We will also pay a separate bonus for Kindle Owners' Lending Library loans in Japan Click To Tweet.

Best regards,
The Kindle Direct Publishing Team

    Hi. I tried to message you on Twitter but it wouldn’t let me because you are not yet my friend. I’ve posted my two volumes of short stories on your Facebook page and would be very interested in your idea of getting authors to download each other’s books on Kndle Prime.
