It’s incredibly important to get our Amazon categories right. What is the right category for your book? That is a good question. We recommend researching this thoroughly before you request any category changes. You might use a tool like KDPRocket or you might just search the categories yourself on Amazon. The goal is to provide more ways for readers that are searching to see your book. It’s especially good to get as niche as you can with the categories as the competition for being a best seller in some of the niche categories is significantly less. Having your book become a best seller reaps many rewards and is something fun for you to celebrate as well as an author.

We created the form below for you to request category changes for your books that are directly listed on Amazon. If your books are published through Ingram and you know that, then this form is not for you. Ingram does not use the same categories as Amazon and we are far more constrained with categories on their site. Amazon by default allows us to put your book in 2 categories. Every request we make for more than 2 categories is a special request to Amazon which they may or may not grant. Unfortunately, all we can do is ask them. This decision is entirely out of our control so please keep that in mind. In addition this process could take days to weeks depending upon how backed up we are and how long Amazon takes to roll out the changes. We ask for you to be patient and not email us for a status update on Amazon category changes. Thank you!
