    I have a question...???

    Is it better to over estimate your KENP read with the higher estimation, assume the same rate, or decrease? Theres about a $50 difference from the high and low.

    Thank you.

    The conventional wisdom is to underestimate earnings. I have my BookReport KENPC set at .0041 and I base my decisions on that. I'd rather underspend than overspend (though I have a pretty aggressive strategy overall compared to most).

    That's the safer choice, but there's really no right or wrong answer. If a higher estimation motivates you to write more, then that might be better for you.

    Still new at this.

    How do you set your report?

    The reason I am asking is there was a difference of $70 that was on the estimated page, I am finding it hard to set a budget.

    Thank you again.

    If you're using BookReport, you can set you estimated KENPC, I believe on the Settings page. It has a few different options. I manually put in .0041, since that's the lowest number we've seen in some time.

    I'm not sure about using other tools. You can always manually multiply the pages on your KDP report by the estimated borrow rate. But I never look at my KDP reports without using BookReport. It's just so much easier to parse at a glance.

    Okay, when you say Book Report you are speaking of the reports from Amazon. I only have one book, but thank you for response. I am now able to see the reports from August and September in my KDP reports
