Amazon’s e-book format is .mobi, which is the Kindle format. Once I’ve moved all of my sales strictly to Amazon through their KDP Select program, that’s the only format the book will be available in, which is fine if you’re using a Kindle or the Kindle app to download and read the books. However, I know this isn’t a good solution for everyone, so here’s what I’m going to do. Since the book will only be for sale on Amazon, if you buy the books through Amazon and you’d rather have them in Epub or PDF format, just forward me a copy of your Amazon receipt and I’d be happy to send you a copy of the books you’ve purchased in whatever format you desire. That way you’re not limited to just the .mobi format.
While I’m not happy about the exclusive nature of Amazon’s KDP Select program, I can at least make it better for my readers by offering alternative formats. If I’d have had any luck getting the sales going the way I had things set up before, I wouldn’t have even considered KDP Select, but I didn’t, so I think this may be the step I need to take to jump start my sales, and then in 90 days when the select period is up, I may switch back to multiple distribution sites depending on the results I get. We’ll just have to see what happens.
