Here’s our letter from Kindle Unlimited. We have received a few very small royalties but we can help each other receive more.
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.

Only Read 10% of Your Book
If readers read only 10% of your book you are eligible for a royalty under the Kindle Unlimited program Click To Tweet. With “The Triptych Series” you only have to read 10 pages and Mark will get paid. Let’s help each other get paid. A book of short stories can get you known and make you royalties quicker and easier. Send us a message on twitter @alchemistgift; facebook or by email email@example.com. We will download your book from Kindle Unlimited and read at least 10%. We can do it faster and easier if you have a book of short stories. We can also give you a review easier and faster. See our blog post from April 4, 2015, “People Don’t Buy Books They Download” for more info on Kindle Unlimited.
We’d like to help you get into the top 100 and get a bonus in addition to the usual royalty. The top 10 get $25000; the top 50 to 100 get $500 Click To Tweet. Help Mark get into the top 100 and he’ll help you.
