Kindle Scout – nice, but

Kindle Scout LogoSomething you might not have heard about – Kindle Scout an initiative from Amazon that allows self-published writers to put their books forward for public vote. The idea is that Amazon will give proper contracts to the most voted for titles.

All very good – see the Kindle Scout site for details. I would like to get more excited and tell you I’ve submitted a book. Sadly this is a US only idea. For now. Fingers crossed!

I’ll keep you posted as I find out more.



  1. Really hoping they expand the program to other countries soon. It’s a shame that only authors from the states can submit books. I also heard there is a restriction on voters as well which is also a shame. I have a book up there now (Freelancer) and it’s been a great experience.
