Kindle Select Publishing (and why as an author you shouldn’t use it)

The post is self explanatory. I should have rad the fine print–well, I did… Sorta. Let’s start where it all began. I had my ebook, My Friend the Boogeyman, all setup for sale on Amazon, Nook, lulu.com, and was in the process of publishing for iBooks. It were there ready to buy. Then I saw a promotion on Amazon for Kindle Select Publishing and decided to try it out. The book had been out about a week prior and hadn’t been selling a ton of copies so when I learned that amazon would have a 90 day exclusive I thought, what could it hurt? Well it’s been there almost a month now and people are asking me, “when can I get it on the nook?” I figured I could cancel my 90 day window–which doesn’t end until March, 7–but, no. I can do no such thing–outside of canceling my amazon account and creating another. I thought about it momentarily but decided, no. Something like that would come back to haunt me and I might not be able to sell any further books on amazon. Guess I’ll have to suck it up.
