Pretty sure it's legit; I got one, too. The links are good.
That's the e-mail you get from Kindle Direct Publishing after your final file has been uploaded and you've finished the process. It goes out after the book has finished review and changes from "Publishing" to "Live" on your KDP bookshelf. When it talks about linking to the book's physical counterpart, that only applies if there is one, whether it's CreateSpace or some other version, and you have to request that link. But yeah, if you published a book through KDP, that e-mail is on the up and up. If you didn't... I'd say someone did, under your e-mail address.SteveKarmazenuk said:Got the following email yesterday:

Did you publish directly with KDP for Unearthing? If you didn't get an Amazon confirmation email, it probably went into your spam folder.SteveKarmazenuk said:Thanks for the 411 guys!
I was suspicious because I didn't get one for Unearthing or Never Mind...but following your lead(s) I went ahead and filled out all the necessary processes.
