I decided to try publishing a book through the Kindle Scout Program. For 30 days, a sample of a new, never before published book is uploaded to the Kindle Scout site and readers can read it, then decide if they want to nominate your book for publication. Readers are given three nominations per month. If their book is published, they get a free ebook for their support.
For the authors, you have a chance at a publishing contract with Amazo, complete with the power of their marketing team behind it.
Once you've uploaded your manuscript and Amazon approves it, readers can nominate you and if you're lucky, you'll make the hot and trending list. The Moon Thief made the hot and trending list the first night it was posted. That's because of you readers, because you support me and stand by me, no matter what crazy new idea I have. Thank you!
