Reaching Kindle Vella on Amazon

It seems like the Vella roll-out was a little bit quirky, at least for me. I found it a bit unclear with no directions on how to direct our readers to the Kindle Vella Store to find our stories, but I think it’s all good now. I’ve tested out a couple of links, copied them to my trusty Amazon advertising folder and put one on my ad that will be running in Facebook.

As with anything new, there will be quirks and uneven patches of ground to cover, but I think these will smooth out rather quickly and Vella may take off for the moon. I did expect more advertising from Amazon to help those of us who jumped right in and answered the call for stories, but again, maybe that will come down the road when it’s all set up and functioning well. Perhaps they are starting off with a soft opening to see how the traffic will affect the site, before they let out the big guns of advertisers to draw even more interest.

If, for any strange reason, Vella does not take off (and I do believe that to be a very far fetched idea), then I will have two books ready to publish, so it is a win-win all the way around. I am also enjoying reading some of the other authors, especially Shell St. James who is masterful in her telling of the story Seven Crows’ Secrets. Check her out, she’s really good!

  1. This Vella idea sounds so interesting. I like the idea that you can serialize your story and gain new readers this way. And as you mention, there’s nothing to lose. If it doesn’t pan out, you can simply unpublish it and start again with KDP. Great post! 🙂


    1. It is interesting, Sara. It’s also fun to check on your progress in the Beta Reports section of Vella, too. The newest information is that you don’t need to unpublish it in Vella, you only have to wait 30 days from the date of your last episode publishing, then you can publish it in Amazon Kindle, too. Thank you for your comments!
