How do I add/change my categories?

To update the Categories for your book:
  1. Sign in to your KDP account at: http://kdp.amazon.com
  2. Go to your Bookshelf and click the ellipsis button ("...") under the Book Actions menu next to the book you want to update.
  3. Select "Edit book details."
  4. Under the Categories header, click "Add Categories."
  5. Click on a Category and then check the box next to a Sub-Category. Select up to two Categories.
  6. Click "Save" once Category selections are complete.
  7. Scroll to bottom of page and click "Save and Continue."
You'll then be redirected to the book pricing & promotion page. Click the button to publish your changes at the bottom of the page. Changes will take effect on the web site within 72 hours.

Category options displayed in your Bookshelf won't match the website exactly because the Bookshelf choices are BISAC (Book Industry Standards and Communications) categories, while the names shown on the website are browse categories.
