    Michael Obiora posted a message to Anna Lewis Hi Anna, have you worked with, or are you working with any writers who have published their work ...Hi Anna, have you worked with, or are you working with any writers who have published their work on Amazon's KDP? Not the select programme, as I know this has a 90 day exclusivity clause to start with.
