Kindle Publishing 2016 – August Update

Hot Kindle Categories

August 3, 2016 — Our recent survey among authors and publishers came back with a crystal clear result. If you want to succeed in publishing, you have to know the market. This starts with an overall understanding of what genres sell and goes all the way to identifying the hot kindle categories on a sub- and sub-sub-category level.  Watch this video to get your first overview of the Kindle market. We examine key performance trends across a major book genres: e-book prices, Amazon sales rank, book supply and other key performance indicators.

Happy publishing!

The 30 Main Kindle Categories

You want to identify a Kindle sales trend to support your book projects and publishing decisions? Look no further: We cover sales rank, estimated sales per day, book sales volume growth, book price levels, price trends in more than 2,900 Kindle niches.

Kindle publishing success starts with knowing the market. Our database goes way beyond that what off-the-shelf Kindle software tools offer. We analyzed millions of data points for more than 12 months to really understand how Amazon sales ranks truly work and react.  Sales ranks typically fluctuate by as much as plus/minus 25% in a 24 hour period and up to 90% over 30 days. So if you look at a bestseller list just at one point in time, you can be totally led astray. K-lytics “irons out” the peaks and valleys of book sales performance by monitoring best seller lists over time.
