The Kindle Storyteller Award – how to enter, and what you can win (20 grand!)

The “magic formula” for understanding Amazon’s algorithms (there isn’t one!)

Amazon’s new book categories and how to use them best

Amazon’s charts

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and how it might affect KDP in future be it for “writing” nonsensical books, or affecting the charts

And a load more!
