In case you, like everyone else it seems, are a little confused about what kindle vella is I thought I’d give an overview. I’ve had some trouble even figuring it out myself even. With the launch of the serial writing program, its been unclear to exactly how it works for THE READERS.
For writers, its plain and simple. Writers post their stories chapter by chapter, and they’re called episodes. Writers get paid by tokens which are determined by word count.
Readers buy tokens which allow them to read the stories. But where exactly are the stories you’re wondering? Is Kindle Vella an app? Is it a website? Here is the answer, which wasn’t clear to me and probably everyone else from the beginning.
Kindle Vella stories exist WITHIN kindle. So, if you are on the amazon website or the kindle app you’d go to the menu and click KINDLE VELLA. It then takes you to the Kindle Vella website. If you have any stories that you are following currently, it will show them on the first page. Then, it will also show the top five trending stories.
Go through, browse, and then get tokens to buy whatever it is that you want to read. Writers move forward when they have more comments and faves so if you like something, be sure to show the some love. That’s how writers move up. The more reads, the more they trend.
