Hello and welcome to the second posting in the new series on this blog,
Tips and Topics for Writers.
|Tips and Topics for Writers|
Today's topic for writers is Adding A+ Content to your KDP books. This topic is for Indie authors and publishers because only publishers can add this content to your book description page. If you are with a small press or a huge, traditional publisher, you cannot add A+ content.

What NOT to do in A+ Content

This page is gold for you. The gray boxes explain the guidelines, how to create the content and wonderful, inspiring examples of what can be created on your page.
The guidelines are clear on what you are allowed to do. Find them under content restrictions in the link on the first gray box. The four main reasons for amazon rejecting your content are
- Pricing or promotional details. Absolutely no promotions are allowed such as a 99-cent sale. No customer reviews are permitted.
- Time-sensitive information. No phrases such as "on sale now, the best yet, new." And no references to holidays. The info has to be evergreen--timeless.
- Publication quotes. Quotes should only be from well-known publications or public figures with attribution to the publication or author.No reviews from readers.

As you know, Amazon is strict when publishing our books. A+ content pages are the same.

I hope the information about A+ Content is helpful. Don't be overwhelmed with it. I discovered it was easier doing it than reading about it!!
Please leave a comment below about your experience with developing A+ Content for your books. Thank you for stopping in!

My publisher added A+ content for all of my books.
Great! I think they really catch a reader's eye. I just wonder how many folks scroll all the way down the page to see the From the Publisher modules. Thank you for stopping in!
