Here is a NEW update for Kindle Authors! We’re making updates to the way series books are listed on Amazon.com. Series books are books with multiple volumes—whether they’re each complete books, or individual sections of a longer book. To make these books easier for customers to find, we’re updating how we organize them in the Kindle Store in the coming weeks, including changes to the detail page so that the title displays as “Title: Subtitle (Series Title Book Volume)”. These changes will help make sure that customers can find all of your books easily.Here’s how series information should be used:
• Series Title: Your Series Title in KDP should be the name of the series. By ensuring that all books in a series have the exact same value for “Series Title”, you will improve discoverability of your books.
• Volume: Enter only a numerical value (eg: 1, 2, 3; not “Book 5” or “Book V”)For example, if your book is called “The World” and is the second book within your “Science Facts” book series, your information would be as follows:• Book title:   The World
• Series title: Science Facts
• Volume:       2

The title for this book will show up as “The World (Science Facts Book 2)”.

Please update the series information for your books listed above by April 14th to ensure your series books will surface appropriately in the Kindle Store once we’ve made our updates. Also, please review any other series books you’ve published to ensure they follow the same standards noted above.

To update your book information:
1. On your bookshelf, in the “Other Book Actions” columns next to the title you’re updating, click “Edit book details”.
2. Enter changes to your series information under “Step 1. Enter Your Book Details”.
3. Click “Save and Continue,” then click “Save and Publish”. Your book will be reviewed and republished with your new series information within 24 hours.

Thank you for your attention to this. For more information, read more in help: https://kdp.amazon.com/help?topicId=A20O3YB8HW1PIW

Like many who enjoy the fantasy genre, Akers started reading it as an adolescent. He was fascinated with Tolkien's Lord of the Rings and Bram Stoker's Dracula. He currently enjoys reading works by Dean Koontz, Heather Brewer, J.K. Rowling, and Rick Riordan. Akers enjoys creating a fantasy world with compelling storylines, while injecting humor and a touch of drama into the action as he did with his first book Terra Vonnel and the Skulls of Aries, which has received rave reviews. "I start every story with this thought: Where can I take my audience now? To me it's about the journey, the escape into a world filled with the fantastic and the unexpected. There is nothing like an adventure that takes you further from reality with every turn of the page." D.C. Akers was born in Texas and after spending several years working in accounting, Akers began to pursue his childhood dream of becoming a writer.
