From author Suzan Tisdale, the Cheeky Wench…An open letter to Jeff Bezos regarding KU Book Stuffers, Scammers and thieves. Please pass this on.
This is the letter that I have sent to Jeff Bezos regarding the problems with KU Book Stuffers, Scammers, and thieves. Take from it what you will.
Dear Mr. Bezos,
I am Suzan Tisdale. I began my self-publishing career in December of 2011. Within a year of releasing my first three novels, I was able to give up my day job. As a self-published, indie author, I made in one month what would have taken me a year to earn at my regular, 9-5 day job. I was a KDP Select Princess and constantly extolled the virtues of the KDP Select Program. Nothing and no one could get me out of it.
Then you launched KU 1.0, and my income dropped 90% in the first month of its inception. With that inception came the scammers. And those scammers have only become more brazen and prevalent, as time has passed…

I read her post, but I don’t quite understand what’s going on. She seems to assume that the reader knows all about “KU” and the other acronyms she’s using. I also didn’t follow how a kindle unlimited (?) reader would choose a fake book and willingly page through it for no reason. Also, why do page views matter?
They teach persuasive writing in most high schools, I think.
