Don't know what the Kindle Scout program is?
Kindle Scout is reader-powered publishing for new, never-before-published books.
Browse new books.
Every book has 30 days to earn your nomination.
When you discover a book that you think is great, nominate it.
Update your nominations whenever you wish.
When a book’s 30-day campaign ends, you will receive an early,FREE copy of all the Kindle Scout books you nominated that are published.
Submit your book to Kindle Scout and be considered for a publishing contract with Kindle Press in 45 days or less. Welcome submissions for English-language books in the following genres: Romance, Mystery & Thriller, Science Fiction & Fantasy, and Literature & Fiction. Action & Adventure, Contemporary Fiction, and Historical Fiction will be accepted within the Literature & Fiction category. Any adult with a valid U.S. bank account and a U.S. social security number or tax identification number is eligible. Checkout the Kindle Scout Eligibility & Content Guidelines.
Under the agreement, you grant us a 45-day exclusivity period to consider your work for publication. That is just long enough to allow for Amazon to review your submission and the 30-day nomination period for your book's campaign. At the end of your campaign they will let you know whether your book has been selected for publication by Kindle Press. If your book is selected for publication, Amazon will have the exclusive, worldwide rights to publish your book in digital and audio formats in all languages for a 5-year renewable term. Otherwise, you automatically get all your rights back at the end of the 45-day exclusivity period. Please be sure to read the Kindle Press Submission & Publishing Agreement in full before you submit your work to Kindle Scout.
Synopsis of Agreement

If you do not earn at least $25,000 during any 5-year term, you'll have six months after the end of that 5-year period in which you can choose to stop publishing with us and request your rights back.
You get:
An opportunity to get paid for your writing. They're looking for never-before-published books of about 50,000 words or more. If selected, you will be entitled to a $1,500 advance and royalties on net revenues at a rate of 50% for eBooks, 25% for audio editions and 20% for translations.
If your book is selected for publication by Kindle Press and you later want to stop publishing with Amazon you'll be able to get your rights back in a variety of circumstances.
