New Amazon Kindle Categories 

September 12, 2021 — Amazon made several changes to its Kindle category structure in recent weeks. Some are minor and occurred at a low level in the browse hierarchy; others were more significant, as they represent new genre designations right at the Kindle ebook sub-category level.

Three of the twenty sub-category additions struck my eye:

Literature & Fiction – Small Town & Rural
Mystery, Thriller & Suspense – Science Fiction
Romance – Later in Life

The complete list of new sub-categories is available in our PREMIUM + ELITE members’ category database uploads .

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 7,000 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.
