For those who aren't familiar with it, Amazon.com has a great program called KDP Select, where self-published authors can enroll their work in the Amazon lending library as well as give away copies for 5 days during the 90 day enrollment period. Sounds great, right? Yes, and no. The main problem with KDP Select, is that in order to enroll you have to give exclusive rights to them for your ebook. You can't sell your ebook anywhere else, and you can't even give it away outside of their site.
Amazon.com has their reasons for demanding exclusivity, and while I don't entirely agree with it, I have been extremely satisfied with them thus far. That being said, I did not choose to re-enroll when the 90 day period ended. I gave it a lot of thought, and I want to make it more widely available. Starting today you can pick up a copy of Chance Assassin at Barnesandnoble.com. You can also continue to buy it at Amazon.com, and the paperback version is still pending for those readers who prefer an old fashioned physical copy (myself included.)
Thanks again, and happy reading!
