Amazon launches Kindle First service
Amazon has launched a new service that offers customers access to Kindle books from Amazon Publishing authors a month in advance of their official release date.
Named Kindle First, the service will see Amazon publishing editors select titles from popular categories a month ahead of their official publication date, adding a note of recommendation and a behind-the-scenes look at the stories and the authors.
Customers will be able to buy of the featured books each month for 99p while Amazon Prime members will be able to download their selection for free.
Dominic Myers, director, Amazon Publishing EU, said: “Kindle First adds even more value to our Prime membership and we’re delighted to be able to offer these great titles as early exclusives to all of our customers.
“Not only is this another great service for our customers, it’s also a brilliant showcase for the amazing work being done by Amazon Publishing authors, who will have their books discovered and enjoyed by an even wider audience.”
