It looks like Amazon is gaining some grounds with its Kindle Owners Lending Library program, not only for the company but for authors who agree to make their works available in the said program. In fact, Amazon just announced that 16 of the top 100 best-selling paid Kindle books in March are exclusive to the Kindle Store and available to borrow for free for Amazon Prime members through the Kindle Owners Lending Library. As of today, there are now more than 100,000 books available in the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library. These include more than 100 current and former New York Times Best Sellers. Most of these titles are exclusive to Kindle and were published through the Kindle Direct Publishing platform. Authors who self-published their works under the KDP platform will automatically have their works included in the Kindle Owners Lending Library. These authors earn $2.18 everytime their books are borrowed through the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library service. According to Amazon, this is more than what many authors earn when their books are sold. So there, if you’re an independent author who wants you work published, you might want to try getting into the Kindle Direct Publishing.
