Changing the category

I have a book listed on Amazon UK and Amazon USA

http://amzn.com/B0192C4R50
http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0192C4R50

My problem is I can't seem to find a way to list it in the correct category

I want it in this category Books > Humor & Entertainment > Puzzles & Games > Quizzes

But that's not an option.

Help much appreciated.

There's a void between the categories authors/publishers are allowed to select for their work, and the categories readers can browse. They don't always match up, so to get into those extra categories, you need to use keywords. Look in the help section (there's a link on the first page of these forums) to see what might work to get you into that category.

Quizzes are nothing but trivia, and your book is listed in the Trivia sub-sub-genre. However, who knows, maybe you can get Amazon to add a new sub-sub-sub-genre for you, then add another beyond that as "Pubs." It would obviously help your ranking immeasurably. Go for it.

Simply contact KDP support using the link at the bottom right of this page. Give them your book's ASIN and the full path to the category, exactly as you've listed it here. As long as your book is selling, they're happy to comply.
