A Kindle Scout Review – One Year Later
Today is almost a year to the date that I was notified by Amazon that my psychological thriller novel, Housebroken, had been selected for publication by the Kindle Scout team.
When I submitted my book to the Kindle Scout program, I didn’t know what to expect. I was in the first round of books with the KS announcement and the competition was fierce. Add to that the fact that this was my debut novel and I had absolutely no “platform” as an author or social media expertise. But I did have a book I believed in. I’ll be forever grateful that I wasn’t the only one.
While my life hasn’t radically changed since the publication of my novel, it has been the first in many steps in my journey as an author. Within this year’s timespan I’ve published a second novel, The Creation, which is the first in a new series, and had several short stories accepted in various anthologies (a few which are yet to come out). My experience working with the Kindle Press team has been exceptional and to any would-be authors out there, I can’t say enough about the doors this program continues to open for me.
One year later, and the journey’s still beginning. I’m excited to see what the next year will bring.
