Thanks for sharing this. I sell on Amazon and it's important to know what they are doing to/for us writers and booksellers.

Although much of this is still under wraps, Amazon is releasing a new crowdsourcing program for authors soon.

This program is so new that it doesn’t even have a name yet, but many are referring to it as “Amazon Crowdsourcing” and other, similar titles.
 
What is It?
The truth is that no one really knows what this crowdsourcing program is because Amazon has been very tight-lipped about the whole thing. While they have spilled a few beans, there is still a lot to wonder about. The main premise is this: authors will be allowed to upload a new book or cover. The book cannot be published, so it has to be a fresh piece of work.

A few days after being uploaded, a few pages will be available to readers so that they can see what the book is about and to get a sense of whether they would like it or not. These readers are then able to vote on their favorite books.So, what happens to these books? Those that are gaining the most votes will be reviewed by a team of professional publishers for the reward of being published.
There is also an incentive for readers and voters. If you vote on a book that is published, then you will receive a free copy just before the book is published.

+Daniel White I'm going to need you to be more specific. How is Amazon going nowhere? Are you referring to their publishing imprints, to the entire company or to KDP?

Regarding your last sentence, I don't want to make presumptions about you, so let me ask. Are you saying that you've never read a self-published book that was entertaining or worthy of your time? Is that your position? Or are you referring to the ones that published by Amazon's traditional imprints?

Much like Facebook and Twitter are great for general social media marketing, every aspiring author should find him or herself on GoodReads. This is a social network dedicated to book readers and creators.
