I bet you all knew how to do this, and I am the only one who has only recently cottoned on… you know, how to have your books added to more categories on Amazon. But, just in case there is anyone out there who didn’t know, here is the email I received when I asked how I should go about it (if you are viewing this through a phone a little of the following email may be cut off. If so, I am happy to send it to you via email):
Just in case you need to know, the ISBN/ ASIN number can be found on your book listing info, or on your KDP bookshelf. I successfully had my publications added to more categories than the ‘sign up’ form allowed, which has to increase the chance of being seen, even if only to a small degree. It takes a little time but is worth trying. I received confirmation within an hour or so that the categories had been added, although you need to allow up to 72 hours for it all to happen.
Obviously, how many extra categories are relevant depends upon the genre of the book; I write about spirituality, and also about ordinary people in everyday life and their relationships, and they don’t sit under the same umbrella. But, it is worth looking into and is quite easy to do. You have to follow it exactly as they state: I forgot to say Kindle Store before adding the rest of the info and they told me that I had to re-submit it. Anyway, there it is… you might find other categories for your book/s that are not currently being utilised!
