Contest for Amazon KDP Select Users
« on: April 17, 2017, 11:19:44 AM »
I don't believe anyone has posted this here yet. You still have time to get a book in. I got a notice from Amazon about this contest. Probably a million authors will enter, but if you have a new story that's not published yet, you may want to give it a go. There are some rules, like you have to publish the book both in print and ebook. I found it's a lot fussier to set the document up for paperback. But not impossible.

I was put off this competition because it's not just about the quality of the book. Getting on the shortlist also depends a lot on your marketing ability, about the judging of the competition, it says:  each Book will be rated based on the commercial viability of the Book (including, without limitation, with regards to the Book’s sales, borrows and customer feedback)

But if you're planning to publish anyway, then you've got nothing to lose by having a go. Good Luck!
