I don’t know if this is common knowledge, but I thought I’d share an email that I received from Kindle Direct Publishing which might help any authors who have published or will be publishing a book between 1st May and 31st August (the book must be enrolled in KDP Select):
“Thank you for recently publishing your book “A Marriage of Convenience” (ASIN:B07D7Z37DR) through Kindle Direct Publishing.
Have you heard about the 2018 Kindle Storyteller contest? You may be interested in entering your book into the contest. The Kindle Storyteller prize is open to submissions of new books published in the English language between 1st May and 31st August, 2018. The prize is open to books published in digital and print formats in any genre. The winning author will receive a £20,000 cash prize and be recognized at a central London award ceremony.

Read the detailed terms and conditions here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/b?ie=UTF8&node=12414786031
If you meet the eligibility requirements and enter the keyword ‘storytelleruk2018’ into the keyword field of your book on your KDP account, we will then add your book to the contest.”
So there you have it. If you have a new book in Kindle Select and want to be in the running for £20,000, just add keyword ‘storytellerUK2018’ and you might be lucky!
