Amazon’s Kindle Scout Seeks Unpublished Novels

Manuscript&Books-CindyFazziKindle Scout, Amazon’s crowdsourced publishing platform, is open to submissions. You may submit an unpublished novel in these genres: romance, mystery, thriller, and science fiction/fantasy. Kindle Scout lets readers decide which novels will get published through nominations. The Kindle Scout team then reviews all nominations for potential publication. You should be at least 18 years old and have a valid U.S. Social Security number or tax identification number to be eligible for publication.

Writers whose manuscripts are selected will receive a five-year renewable deal, $1,500 advance, 50 percent e-book royalty, and Amazon marketing support. Kindle Scout accepts submissions throughout the year.
