Amazon UK Kindle Storyteller Writing Competition

Do Create Space published paperbacks qualify for this competition as the Rules and Conditions imply that only KDP books will be accepted? Since KDP now encourage writers to convert their ebook almost immediately to paperback I wondered does it therefore exclude all other paperbacks - ie including those published through Create Space (a division of Amazon)? Seems unfair when CSp always encourage authors to convert later to Kindle?

Hi Pfiddle,

I spotted at least one book which is included in the competition with CreateSpace listed as the publisher (The Missing Man by Nathan Goodwin). I'm sure there are more.

Best wishes,

Richard

Re: Amazon UK Kindle Storyteller Writing Competition

Hi Pfiddle,

 

In my case I found to enter this competition somewhat confusing but the guys at KDP very kindly helped me out. Enough to say, I have entered my latest title, 'The Raven the Lion and the Wite Dragon' in both Kindle and paperback formats.

If you or anyone else needs to clarify entry information do what I did and write to Amazon's KDP help line.

It was confusing, but they later added that CreateSpace created paperbacks with a KDP e-book would be accepted!

Have you seen the winner yet?

I made it through the long list, with my book Her Master, His Slave! but have not heard anything lately.

Thanks.

Toni Mariani
