All titles must be entered into the KDP Select programme and must be available as an eBook and in print for the entry period to be considered.
Readers will play a significant role in the competition, with the award shortlist compiled based on customer ratings for the titles, followed by an esteemed panel of judges – made up of both Amazon experts and literary authorities – selecting the Kindle Storyteller 2017 winner. The panel will be made up of industry experts within and external to Amazon.
