Authors who self-publish on Amazon will soon have to change their writing methods and bet on high-performance works, in the commercial sense of the term, because Amazon now wants to pay them by the number of pages read from July 1. Until now, Amazon paid them both for the downloaded book, but also with a bonus when the readers exceeded 10% of the book. What favor the shortest works.
Amazon indicates that non-text elements will also be counted (photos, graphics). The remuneration is announced as attractive, since Amazon evokes a 100-page book read in full 100 times which could bring in 1000 dollars to its author. The productions should thus try to keep the reader in suspense, the compensation model will be dedicated to the self-publishing platform Kindle Direct Publishing.
