Amazon has unveiled its newest scout program for discovering new authors and publishing their work: Kindle Scout.


Here's the twist: readers decide which books should receive a publishing contract.


The devil is in the details.... be sure to read ALL of them before trying to decide if you want to submit your novel.  


But we will say that getting in early on opportunities like this tends to be your best chance at success.




How It Works

Kindle Scout is reader-powered publishing for new, never-before-published books. It’s a place where readers help decide if a book receives a publishing contract. 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.
