I’ve only discovered it recently but it seems like an awesome way to discover new stories.
Kindle Scout is a platform that allows authors to publish their never before published stories for people to vote and then hopefully get chosen to be an e-book promoted by Amazon. They also get some pretty awesome royalties too. Only the first 5,000 words or so are posted up for people to rate and if they nominate a book that does get selected then they get the full copy for free (and who doesn’t love free books?)!
Why am I telling you this?
- It’s a good way to find new stories.
- It’s a good way to get your own stories out there.
- I’m giving it a try. I’ve submitted my own story that I wrote over the last four years. So please have a look and nominate it if you like it.
