Who Knew? Kindle Key Words

Just wanted to share this link.

It turns out that for romance, SFF, children’s, teen/YA, mystery/thriller/suspense, and comics/graphic novels if you want your book on Amazon to be listed in certain sub-categories you need to choose specific key words when you list your book.

So, for SFF if you have a werewolf book you’d need to use the keyword, “shapeshifter” to get the book into that sub-category.  But if it was in the romance category you’d want to use “werewolf.”  And if it was teen/YA, either word would work.

(Huh?  Why not the same keywords for all three?  Who knows.)

Anyway.  First I’d seen this mentioned was today, so thought I’d share.
