Amazon says it will offer Kindle users advance access to selected new titles ahead of their official release date.
Each month editors at its Amazon Publishing arm will select several titles from Kindle’s most popular categories, adding a note of recommendation and a behind-the-scenes look at the stories and the authors.
Customers with a subscription to the retailers Prime membership scheme will then be able to choose one of the featured books for just $1.99.
The titles are Things We Set on Fire, by Deborah Reed; No Place for a Dame, by Connie Brockway; Silent Echo, by J.R. Rain; and We Will Survive: True Stories of Encouragement, Inspiration, and the Power of Song, by Grammy-award winning recording artist Gloria Gaynor.
All books will be published in December but are available to Kindle First members immediately.
“Prime just keeps getting better for our members, and any customer will find something interesting in our Kindle First picks,” said Russ Grandinetti, Vice President of Kindle Content.
“We also love that these amazing books by Amazon Publishing authors will get a chance to reach a much wider audience.”
