You may have seen headlines recently regarding Amazon paying self-published authors per page read and been just a little bit worried. But worry not. Just to make it clear – this has nothing to do with e-book royalties. If someone buys your e-book, you will receive the royalty on that book (35 or 70%), regardless of whether the customer reads the book or not. The ‘paying per page read’ only applies to books that are borrowed through the Kindle Lending Library or Kindle Unlimited.

So you can stop worrying. And remember: the best way to ensure that your book is read – right to the end – is to make it as good as it can possibly be!
