While your campaign is live
How does a book become “Hot & Trending”?
Hot & Trending is based on nominations and saves by Kindle Scout readers. We update the list hourly.
Is there any way to follow how my campaign is performing?
You can get visibility into the performance of your campaign on a daily basis with stats such as total hours spent visible on our Hot & Trending list, page views, external traffic sources, and a look at other books nominated by those readers who nominated your book. You can see your stats for any current and past campaigns by visiting the “Your Campaigns” page and clicking on the blue “View All Campaign Stats” button next to your title. We update these stats every day with data from the beginning of the campaign up to the previous day (therefore, you won’t see stats from the first day of your campaign until Day 2).
How will I know if my book is selected for publication by Kindle Press?
At the end of your Kindle Scout campaign, you will receive an email letting you know whether your book is selected for publication by Kindle Press. If your book is selected, you will have 30 days to conclude any final edits to your manuscript and provide us with your banking and tax information (so we can pay you) before your book is made available for sale on Amazon.
