Greetings fellow writers,

Math is not my first language. I've read several explanations about the KENPC payment plan, but I still don't get it. I have an ebook out, and just decided to enroll in the select program. I have questions. To simplify things, I will round out all numbers.

I enrolled my ebook on October 7.

My ebook is 90 pages long.

As of October 8, I had 160 pages read according to the KENPC counter.

So with that being said, five questions:

1) Does this mean that I will definitely be paid for 160 pages read?

2) If so, could you provide a make believe figure of the author fund "pot" and break down what 160 read pages will yield in terms of dollars and cents?

3) Should I look at my numbers like this: One person read the whole book (90 pages and another person read 70 pages and didn't finish?) Or could these numbers reflect different people reading snippets of my work?

4) Does kindle borrows affect your ranking?

5) I really try not to compare myself to others, but when trying to figure this out and reading other accounts, folks attest to 500 pages read within hours of putting up their work. So what is the normal period to expect reads to pick up?

Since promotion is currently a challenge, I'm hoping the KENPC situation eventually helps out in the royalty department. :)

All wisdom will be greatly appreciated!
