For those that speak or, more importantly, write French, there’s something cool happening over at the Amazon.fr website. On July 1st, Amazon’s French subsidiary announced a new literary program to expand their Kindle Direct Publishing ebook lineup.
Self-pubbed books that are in KDP Select over on Amazon.fr are eligible. Ebooks that are downloaded between July 1st and September 27th this year are eligible to compete for a €3,000 prize plus marketing services worth €10,000.
The books must have the code “concoursKindle2015” in a special box. The works will be evaluated by Amazon for their literary qualities, and the ebooks must be relatively popular. This might be a good time to schedule some kind of sale or giveaway, if they allow it.
Good luck, or bonne chance!
