As defined by Amazon, “Kindle Scout is reader-powered publishing for new, never-before-published books. It’s a place where readers help decide if a book gets published. 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.”

So now that my book has been accepted into the program, what happens next?
Time to get the word out!
The more “nominations” the book gets, the better its chance of clearing the next hurdle, which is a publishing contract with Amazon.
