This article will walk you through how to use this powerful and flexible feature to generate ideas for your own book topics.

Have you watched Proof if Concept yet?
If you don't know why POC is important, learn what separates a good topic from a poor one in Module 2!

Generating a Topic

  1. First, choose a category from the first drop-down menu. Categories are broad buckets of genres that Amazon uses to categorize books. The lesson noted above will help you decide on a category if you do not already have one in mind.

2. Next, choose a subcategory from the second drop down menu. Each subcategory will further refine the topic options you receive. If you have no subcategory in mind yet, you can choose I'm open to anything.

3. Some subcategories will have sub-subcategories nested in them. If your category selection has more options, you can refine further.

4. Finally, click the generate button. You will see the process begin in the output section on the right side of the screen.

4. Topics are usually generated in a few seconds to a few minutes at most. If you are happy with the results, you can copy the entire list by clicking the copy button in the top right corner of the page. Or, you can highlight specific lines and use control-c to copy them to your clipboard.

If you would like a new set of results, simply click the generate button again to reset the prompt and create a new list of book topic ideas!

When you have generated another set of ideas, you will be able to toggle between your generations using the arrow buttons on the top right.


These are topic ideas. They have not passed our strict proof of concept requirements yet and may need further refinement. Make sure to check for POC yourself. If you have a personal coach, book a call and go over your best topic ideas together.
