KDP Short Reads: How to Make the Most of Your Book's Back Matter

The back matter of a book is the section that comes after the main text and includes additional content such as an author's note, acknowledgements, and a bibliography. For KDP Short Reads, the back matter is a great opportunity to engage with your readers and add value to your book. In this article, we'll explore some ways to make the most of your book's back matter when publishing KDP Short Reads.

  1. Include an author's note: An author's note is a great way to connect with your readers and provide additional information about yourself and your book. You can use it to share your inspiration for the story, provide background information, or thank people who helped you with the book.

  2. Include a bibliography: If your short read is based on research or includes references to other works, consider including a bibliography in the back matter. This can add credibility to your work and provide readers with additional resources to explore.

  3. Include an excerpt from your next book: If you have another book coming out, consider including an excerpt in the back matter of your short read. This can help to build anticipation for your next book and encourage readers to check it out.

  4. Include a call-to-action: Include a call-to-action in the back matter of your short read, such as asking readers to leave a review, sign up for your newsletter, or visit your website. This can help to build your author platform and increase visibility for your work.

  5. Offer additional resources: Offer additional resources in the back matter of your short read, such as a glossary, a list of recommended reading, or a guide to related websites. This can help to add value to your book and provide readers with additional information to explore.

  6. Include an acknowledgement: Acknowledge the people who helped you during the writing and publishing process. This can help to show your appreciation and also help in building a network for future books.

By including engaging and valuable content in the back matter of your KDP Short Reads, you can provide additional value to your readers and increase the chances of receiving positive reviews and recommendations.
