Self-publishers often complain that they find it much, much harder to make sales on other retailers like Barnes & Noble. Today I look at why. And the answer is quite simple: Barnes & Noble make it very difficult for readers to find indie books. I argue that this strategy is as harmful for Barnes & Noble as it is for self-publishers.

The first wave of self-publishers who signed up to KDP Select have either come to the end of their 90-day exclusivity period or that day is fast approaching, and many are wondering whether to re-enroll in the program or to begin uploading to the other retailers.

In January, I featured Sarah Woodbury, who decided to stay out of Select and outline a strategy which had brought her great success in the past - making the first book of a series free, on all retailers, permanently. She also promised to come back and let us know how it all went.

What do you do when your writing partner says, "Our story is boring!"
