Kindle Scout

Well, I saw on another blog that an author was pleased one of his books had been chosen via this – I’d never heard of it so as usual off I went to satisfy my curiosity….the web sends me off on lots of detours when I’m doing one thing (in this case checking emails) and something spurs my curiosity. I could waste spend hours reading about all sorts of things. I love information and there’s so much to find – Google really is my friend!
Anyway Kindle Scout is a place for authors to submit their books and readers to nominate them for a prize. What’s the prize you ask – well how does this sound: . Selected books will be published by Kindle Press and receive 5-year renewable terms, a $1,500 advance, 50% eBook royalty rate, easy rights reversions and featured Amazon marketing.
As far as I can find its free, but sadly only for US authors.

You US people get everything long before the rest of us….I have no idea why. So if you’re self publishing, a US author why not submit your book? As ever though read the T&C first and make sure it’s right for you. There may be catches I’ve not seen.

I’m not sure how long it’s been around but there are not many books on there currently – less than 100 I’d guess so pretty good odds 🙂

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
