The winner will receive £20,000, a marketing campaign on Amazon and the opportunity to have their book translated for international readers. In its first year, David Leadbeater won with an action thriller, and the 2018 winner was contemporary fiction author Hannah Lynn.

Now in its third year, the Kindle Storyteller Award is given for previously unpublished new books in the English language, published through KDP. Books must be a minimum of 24 pages, and published between 1 May and 31 August.

Alessio Santarelli, director of Kindle Content, said: 'Following the enthusiasm and huge number of entries in 2018, we are delighted to bring the Kindle Storyteller Award back for its third year. The encouragement and support of aspiring authors is an endeavour we continue to champion at Amazon. Publishing a book has never been easier and we are proud to provide a service that allows for a breadth of diverse stories to be told.'
Hannah Lynn, winner of the 2018 UK Kindle Storyteller Award said: 'Hearing my name called out last October for The Afterlife of Walter Augustus was incredible. To receive such recognition for only my second book was such a fantastic confidence boost that has made me all the more determined to keep writing. I wish the best of luck to the 2019 entrants and urge any writers who are on the fence to enter – you never know what might happen!'
