Just out of curiosity, I'm running an experiment with just one of my titles to see if there's an actual benefit to being in KDP Select and Kindle Unlimited. Enrolling in KDP Select forced me to raise the price to $2.99, which I found worrisome until Amazon went ahead and lowered it back down to its non-sale price of $1.99. I feel better knowing that no one is going to pay more than I'd have charged without enrollment, and I'm also planning on taking advantage of those countdown deals. I'll probably announce a sale over the Labor Day weekend.
Doing this allows those enrolled in Kindle Unlimited to borrow my book for free. So long as they read 10%, then I still earn a royalty, so it looks like a win-win. The only part I don't like is the exclusivity but the way my B&N sales have fallen off over the last few months, it's a chance I'm willing to take.
This is the first time I've experimented with KDP Select, so we shall see how it goes. Close to the end of the three month period, I'll report back with the results.
