Hi

I've just published my first picture book using KDP and it appears that it does not show up if you search for it using a kindle. It only shows if you search for it through the amazon site via a computer.

Does anyone know why this is or if I need to do something in order for it to get to show on a kindle?!

My Book is Seamus the one-armed teddy bear by Shirani Bolle

Any help would be most appreciated as I'm new to all of this!

What type of kindle are you looking on to find it?

It could be that your device will not display it.

(I think it is fixed format??)

My kindle is a paperwhite but the book is colour... do you think this means it will only work on kindle fire and ipads?

Thanks for your help... I'm very new to this and a bit slow!!!

My Kindle ereader is the Kindle Keyboard. Sometimes referred to as the K3. I just typed your title into my device and it showed up with no problem. :-)
