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.
