Each quarter, Amazon.in's editorial team selects some of the most promising debut titles released in the last one year. We read scores of books in search of those we consider to be an Amazon Rising Star. We seek to select the best first books in categories like Literature & Fiction, Mystery & Thrillers and Romance, Biographies, Science Fiction & Fantasy, Children’s books and books for young adults.
We scope out reviews, hunt for book news and spend our nights and weekends reading as many debut books as possible to arrive at the selection, which we think will resonate most with our readers. The titles that make our Rising Stars lists are the keepers, the ones we couldn't forget.
The books included in Amazon’s Rising Stars program are entirely editorial selections. Our goal through this program is to introduce readers of all ages and tastes to new, exciting and compelling works by first time authors, thereby drawing attention to exceptional debut books by authors.
