The Opportunity

Mystery, Thriller & Suspense (MT&S) has grown to be the second highest selling bestseller list on Amazon Kindle. And our recent research suggests a further upward trend.

MT&S is a big and competitive genre. There are more than 500,000 English titles on Kindle, and the influx of new books seems unstoppable.

But where there is competition, there is always an opportunity. In fact, our research surfaced a whole range of promising market niches that show very high sales and come with a relatively low degree of competition.

Get the facts.

Get Ahead Of The Game

No other category on Kindle shows such a favorable profile of what we call "Hot Cells", "Hot Niches" and "Hot Mainstream" book markets.
