Not making $ in KU 2.0? Pub a 3000 page book with a “Prize” at the end!

This, a thousand times *this*!

Brad Vance Author

Seriously. The reason the rest of us are making $.0041 a page is because scammers have figured out how to get 3000 pages read with one click. Someone’s even posted instructions on how to do it, which I won’t link to because fuck them.

Take a look at this title (may be unpubbed soon, as this author appears to be under suspicion at the ‘zon already):

I no longer sub to KU, but…this is in the Look Inside for this book, and I’m told the “win a Kindle Fire” link pushes KU readers to the end of the book, and (though an Amazon rep assured a writer I know that only pages actually read would count) guess what? $12.30 per borrow. Amazon recently took action to reject books with a TOC at the end, but this “Click Here to Win a Kindle Fire” thing is still working for the scammers.

About Nya Rawlyns

Nya Rawlyns doesn’t write typical romance. She writes emotion as a contact sport, rough and often raw. It need not be pleasant, heart-warming or forever after. What she seeks is what lies beneath—a dance of extremes, the intersect of need and desire, and the compromises we make when pain and pleasure become indistinguishable. ***** She has lived in the country and on a sailboat on the Chesapeake Bay, earned more than 1000 miles in competitive trail and endurance racing, taught Political Science to unwilling freshmen, and found an avocation in materials science. ***** When she isn’t tending to her garden or the horses, the cats, or three pervert parakeets, she can be found day dreaming and listening to the voices in her head.
