There’s no way of knowing how many people have nominated my thriller Dying to Breathe on Kindle Scout. On my campaign page I can see how many people actually visited my page and the origins of their visits. The page also shows other books that are being nominated by the people that have nominated my book. There are a couple of books listed there, so I know that at least one person, other than my humble self, nominated Dying to Breathe.
I don’t know the percentage of books that Kindle Scout selects to publish out of all of the books they approve for a campaign. I suspect it is small and that Kindle Scout receives many submissions. In other words, the odds against my book being selected for a publishing contract are long. But, if you think you’ll like my book, you can nominate it and reduce those odds in my favor.
There’s no guarantee that a Hot and Trending book, one that has garnered many nominations, will land a contract. But it can’t hurt. In the end, Kindle Scout editors decide which books they offer a contract to.
Dying to Breathe should appeal to fans of James Patterson’s Private series and Lee Child’s Jack Reacher series.
