I think I thought of a way to get around Kindle KDP exclusivity rights. What do you think?

    I have some books enrolled in KDP select, which means I can't have those books on any other website for sale.

    Today, I thought of an idea. What if I created a new cover and new title for a book that is on Amazon and added it to iTunes and Barnes And Noble.

    Do you think that will work or I will still get caught somehow?

    I've been thinking about this too as I have some in KDP Select as well. I think I'll create another account, and try it with new books so I don't get my good account banned.

    You can always edit things to try and get around it. But in all honesty I would not bother.

    If you are selling on Amazon just concentrate on scaling that.

    If you cannot sell your book on Amazon it won't sell anywhere else.

    The traffic for books is rubbish on iTunes, Barnes and Noble.

    It is not worth pi**ing off amazon for a few sales.

    I sell about $10k a month on Amazon, the same books did about $500 on Barnes and Noble, iTunes etc I used Lulu to upload it.

    So I decided it wasn't worth the hassle. I stopped doing it and noticed my Amazon sales went up!

    So I think they check.
