As of a couple of hours ago, Amazon took me out of the KU program. It's gonna suck, I suspect I'll lose about half my fans and readers, but I can't afford to be shut down because I got targeted.
Now I have to update my webpage and I guess I should open up accounts with other ebook sellers as well. Not that I expect to make much money there. But I guess we will see.

Effective immediately I am pulling all of my books out of Kindle Unlimited (KU). Apparently someone at Amazon is engaging in a witch hunt and is shutting down authors, completely destroying their livelihoods.
I'm not talking about small time authors either, I'm talking about the name authors in the genre in which I write. I realize that I will probably be next, and I can not afford to lose my income, that it is far better for me just to take a hit from no longer being in the KU program.
If you are an author, I would highly recommend you drop out of KU as well. Remember, Amazon can not be questioned or appealed to. You can sue them, that's about it.
Now, some of my books will still be in KU for the next few months, because it's a 90 day sign up. I will be contacting them tomorrow to see if I can get everything pulled immediately. Financially, I just can not take this risk.
