It’s impossible to stress enough how important metadata is to your book being found in online bookstores like Amazon. This is one area where putting time and effort into researching how other successful books in your genre are listed will payoff immensely. Please take your time and look at how other authors describe their books. Please notice the keywords they use and how they have added information on contributors.

Once you feel like you have something that is perfect we recommend sharing your thoughts with friends and family, other authors, your editors, and anyone else that you think will give you an honest and professional opinion. Then you can submit this form and we will do our best to process the request. We may have questions because ultimately the book metadata we use is a judgement call on our side. We will do our best to work with you though to help more readers find your books through better metadata.

Entice readers with a summary of the story and characters. Don't give away anything that adds to the suspense or surprise. Let readers know what makes your book interesting, and give them a sense of what kind of book it is. If you’re stuck for ideas, research the back cover or inner dust jacket flap of books in your genre. Ask your friends or other authors to describe your book. Think of your book description as a 30 second elevator pitch to persuade a casual browser to buy your book. We cannot accept any of the following information in the description: Pornographic, obscene, or offensive content Phone numbers, physical mail addresses, email addresses, or website URLs Reviews, quotes, or testimonials Requests for customer reviews Advertisements, watermarks on images or videos, or promotional material Time-sensitive information (for example, dates of promotional tours, seminars, or lectures) Availability, price, alternative ordering information (for example, links to other websites for placing orders)
Keywords can be a word or a phrase. For best results, we recommend using phrases that are 2-3 words long. To determine the right search keywords for your book, we suggest you think like a reader. What topics or genres are your readers searching for? Avoid keywords that are not accurate descriptors of your book's central storyline, or keywords that are completely unrelated to what's in the book. Inaccurate keywords can lead to unexpected or confusing search results and provide a poor customer experience. We do not tolerate keywords that mislead or manipulate our customers. Examples of items that are prohibited as keywords include but are not limited to refererences to: Other authors Books by other authors Sales rank (e.g., "bestselling") Advertisements or promotions (e.g., "free") Anything that is unrelated to your book's content. NOTE: there is a limit of 7 keywords.
