I'm about the publish a Kindle version of my book and have to select either a 35% or 70% royalty option. It seems obvious to select 70% but I'm assuming selecting the 35% option must have some benefits. Has anyone done it and understand the reasoning. Any help gratefully received. (more) and won+3

Amazon also list your book as in stock and sold by them. Any orders will be automatically fulfilled and a sales report appears in your account at start of each month. I'm going to upgrade the plans this week so the plus plan will have all the pro plan benefits but for just two books which might suit you. Here's a couple of vouchers 'proplan2monthsforfree' and 'PLUSPLAN2' to give you 2 months of the pro and plus plan for free respectively. (more) and won+3
