Duh, didn't even notice the date on the first posts.
I'll probably let my KU subscription laps when this prepaid is up so I'll be using prime reading then. Unless they have another sale on KU by then.
Still wondering if at some point they'll merge at least some of these programs.
Amazon has KU set up so that it automatically renews UNLESS the author checks (or unchecks, I forget) a box. But we can check that box at any time indicating we don't plan to renew. So yes, it is possible they use that as an indicator that the books will not be renewing. I don't know how Amazon decides which books to include in such a list though. (I'm not in KU and the brief time I tried it, it wasn't my cuppa. The rules may have changed a bit since late 2015 when I tried it.)
Sometimes your story requires some foreign words that your characters would use, but readers may be unfamiliar with. In one of my children's stories set in South Africa a chapter begins:
Bheki decided to seek help from the one person he knew would be able to answer his questions. He would ask the isangoma, the diviner to whom everyone turned for help. The isangoma can ask the amadlozi, the spirits of the dead ancestors, thought Bheki.
In this way the children learn a new word, and also the explanation. I don't think you can do it like this without using italics.
The allow lending option is different. That allows someone to buy your book and then "loan" it to a friend's kindle for 2 weeks. you don't get paid for that.
There's a "KDP Select" option that you check to join Select, which is what you're calling KOLL. Most people call it KU. They got rid of the old one and this is the new one. All the info you need is here: https://kdp.amazon.com/select?ref_=kdp_BS_D_TN_se
I'm looking to get this tax thing rolling but Amazon's only showing forms for 2015. Anybody remember when they usually release the updated ones?
Anyone know whether we need to file self-employed forms and itemize expenses etc. if Royalty income is the only income one has that is not accounted for by the day-job's W2? Is the form for Royalty income sufficient?
Hmmm....just tried it again. Works great for me, I said Alexa, stop playing in one minute and she said "Okay, I'll stop playing in one minute."
Maybe you need to run your words together more. . Or talk more quickly, like someone from New York.
