Sort order: Surname, Forename format for Kindle

On Amazon, kindle books are listed author surname first: Surname, Forename.

What’s the best way to do this with Scrivener? If I change author fullname in meta it mucks everything up: author becomes Surname, Forename everywhere.


Just type in the author name as Amazon requires in the respective field of the Meta-Data compile option pane. That’s the place where it is important to have things set up in the manner the vendor or catalogue stipulates.

OK, I’ll look at what they ask for. So far I’ve just uploaded to my kindle via the kindle email address.

Kindle search results seem to list the author name surname first, but when you go to the book page the name is listed firstname first.

Perhaps need to try uploading as a draft to see how they want it.
