Hi all,

I would like to try and understand what I have done wrong, I created a paperback on createspace then an ebook on kdp, both versions are available online on the Amazon site however none of my 4 books appear on the kindle app for people to buy??

Any ideas

Thank you

Readers don't buy books through the Kindle app; they purchase e-books from an Amazon site and then use the app (or a Kindle) to read them. Paperback books have nothing to do with a Kindle or Kindle app, but they, too, are purchased from Amazon sites. Or have I misunderstood your question?

Lee might be referring to the "Discover" function in the Kindle app. I've never found it to be particularly reliable, and I think it only shows books in Kay Yu.
