The way self published authors are paid for participating in KU is through a fund that is underwritten by Amazon. By tracking the amount of the fund in any given month against the individual payout, we can see a little transparency in the program.

Seems to have started with a bang, but hasn’t taken off since.

It’s a perfect moment, then, for Book Week Scotland to launch a campaign asking readers to send love letters to their favourite library, where they will be displayed. Many high-profile authors have also joined the campaign, and their letters will be published exclusively in the Guardian.

I bet they are going to get flooded.
