Amazon’s Kindle Scout publishing platform expands to India and eight other countries, allowing authors in these countries can now earn a Kindle Press publishing contract through the platform.
The reader powered platform will now allow more authors and readers around the world to submit and nominate unpublished novel-length English-language manuscripts.
Readers will receive a free early copy of every book they nominate that is released by Kindle Press.
“Expanding our platform to authors and readers outside the U.S. has been one of the most frequent requests we’ve received since we launched. With today’s announcement, we’re eagerly awaiting the great new stories that will come from opening to even more talented writers and Scouts from around the world,” said Dina Hilal, General Manager of Kindle Scout.
