The sky has fallen.

Looks like I'm going to have to change my subtitle from "Kindle Scout Kahuna" to ???...

Let me think on this.

No, just change it to "Kindle Scout Kahuna 2015 -2018" - you've earned it.

Or, "Kindle Scout Kahuna Emeritus." As Lexi said, you've earned it.

    Hi everyone.
    So now that KS is gone what are your plans? As far as I know there is nothing like KS out there at the moment. Any thoughts? Do you miss it?

    The only similar program out there is Inkitt. I like people actually vote on the website and you can see that, which was one of the things I didn't like about the cloud of secrecy around the KS nominating process. Not as big of an advance, by a long shot, but still something. They do seem to have more resources for authors and a community, as well as providing ARCs, which is also really nice.

    There were a few Kindle Scout submissions I voted for and really wanted to read the rest of the story. Now the program is gone and I can't locate my list to even search for those authors. Can anyone help me? All I remember is:

    1) A Western Australian author whose story began with a Christmas break up...
    2) A tale where an email is received from a presumably deceased husband...
    3) Some sort of holiday (maybe Thanksgiving) magical tale...
