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.

Even if they do have another sale, they may not let you get it at the sale price twice.

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.)

Right . . . but, remember, the question was really about Prime Reading. My understanding is that's much more restricted. I do suspect, however, that if you choose not to renew your book in KU, that means it'll also be off the Prime Reading list, if it had been there.

Or maybe not, maybe they are completely separate. There are some 'big publisher' books in Prime Reading; the rest seem to be mainly Amazon imprints.

Either way, when Prime Reading was first introduced, I read something that indicated that the selection of books would be much smaller than in KU overall, but curated, and that they'd rotate. There are definitely some available now that were not before, and some that were there that I happened to notice that are now gone.

Note the thread was started before the end of last year -- I expect it was a case of they actually went as of the end of December, so they're not showing as 'going soon' now.

As to KU -- my understanding is that when an author puts a book in KU, it's for a finite period. They have to renew after that. So, for KU books, yeah, Amazon would know if books were going out if they haven't been renewed.

BUT Prime Reading is curated -- you can't just sign up to be in the program as an author, you have to be invited/approved. And I expect it's also for a finite period, so, again, Amazon would know if books were due to rotate out. My understanding of the program is not that a book gets in and stays forever, but, as it's a much smaller catalog, books will come and go so as to always provide fresh titles for Prime Readers.

Writers' Cafe / Re: Simplifying Language to Avoid Review Dings
« on: Yesterday at 06:11:57 AM »
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.


For me, in fact, a foreign word that is NOT italicized can throw me out . . . because I read and think in English. So when a word is NOT English it brings me to a screeching halt. If it's in italics, I have warning. :)

An unfamiliar word in English, though should NOT be in italics . . . . if I can't figure it out from the context, I'll look it up. :)

Writers' Cafe / Re: Can someone please explain how KOLL works?
« on: January 19, 2017, 12:40:55 PM »
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.


Yes . . . 'lending enabled' allows a person who's bought the book to loan it for a 2 week period once. While on loan, the purchaser does not have access to it.

Quote

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


Not exactly. Can't speak to what being in KDP select qualifies you for, but I can speak to how the programs work for readers/customers.

KOLL is a program for Prime members who are Kindle owners. It's still an active program; a person can borrow one book per calendar month from a catalog that is roughly the same as the KU catalog. The book must be borrowed via their Kindle or Fire device. If they finish it and return it, they can't borrow another until the first of the next month.

Kindle Unlimited (KU) is a separate program; any Amazon customer, whether a Prime member or not, can subscribe for about $10 a month and can borrow as many books as they want from the KU catalog. The person can only have 10 borrowed at a time, but there's no limit to how many in total they can borrow. And they can borrow from the computer or a tablet or phone or whatever. They don't even need to OWN a Kindle or Fire device.

There's a third program, new since last summer, called Prime Reading. It works like KU but there is no subscription cost; Prime members are automatically enrolled. The main difference is that the catalog is much more limited -- there are 1000 to 1500 titles available, including magazines, vs the million or more available via KU. One can still borrow up to 10 titles at a time and can borrow via any device, computer, etc.

Writers' Cafe / Re: When are Amazon's 1099's going to come out?
« on: January 18, 2017, 03:19:50 PM »
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?

Law says they have to file them with the IRS and have them available to you by Jan 31. But you can start pulling information together with the records you've kept all year.

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?

Based on you asking this question, I strongly suggest you consult a reputable tax professional. You are self-employed and, assuming you've not incorporated, will file a form 1040 with Schedule C for your author income. It may be reported as 'royalties' but you are in the business of writing as an active author*. You should have kept track of all expenses and have contemporaneous receipts and records to substantiate them. You will also pay Self-Employment tax on your net income as well as income tax.  NOW will be a good idea to find someone, so you'll have time to get records together before your return is due to be filed. And if you paid editors, proofreaders, etc. YOU may have 1099s that need to be filed for them. That needs to be done by January 31.




*a retired author -- no longer writing but whose earlier books generate income from continued sales -- would not be self employed and would generally file Schedule E.

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.  :D. Or talk more quickly, like someone from New York.
 :D

Betsy

Alexa could have an issue with accents . . . and I'm guessing, Atunah, even though you've been here a long time, that you might have one.

There's an episode of The Big Bang Theory where one of the characters, Barry, who can't pronounce the "r" sound, basically rants about how horrible Siri (on an iPhone) is; he keeps saying, "Siwi, can you wecommend a westauwant." She responds, "I'm sorry, Bawwy, I don't understand "wecommend a westauwant".

So, that's extreme, and played for laughs, of course, but I suspect that there are limits to how far off "Hollywood American" your speech is that might make it harder for the voice recognition to work.
