The amazon scout program is a platform that allows authors to submit new books to be considered for publication by amazon's in-house publishing company (Kindle Press). Once submitted, authors are given a time-sensitive 30 day campaign on the kindle scout website. Readers (you and me) can visit the site and browse the many current author campaigns. You can read chapter samples, a synopsis, author bio, etc., and if a certain title elicits your interest and enthusiasm, you are then encouraged to click on the "nominate" icon under that specific title. The more nominations an author gets, the stronger his or her campaign will be, and the more likely that book will be picked up by Kindle Press at the end of the 30 day campaign. If my title is selected, Kindle Press will sell and market my novel and enter into a publishing agreement with me. I will receive a royalty advance and a 50/50 split of future sales. This is truly a reader-driven publishing platform.
My campaign for Revenge Ticket is now live on the site and the clock is ticking. I am asking each of you to visit the site (follow link below) and click the "nominate" icon under Revenge Ticket. Please feel free to sample my new novel by reading the first two chapters. Thanks in advance for your help and kindness. You may need to be signed in to your amazon account to nominate titles; I apologize for that minor inconvenience. Here is the link to my campaign:
Revenge Ticket on kindle scout
For your information, Revenge Ticket will be published soon after the 30 day campaign ends on the kindle scout website. Stay tuned for updates.
