Publishing: Amazon Feature Alert—Follow This Author

Writing Publishing Follow Author Feature on Amazon

Amazon has a really cool feature that allows readers to follow their favorite authors. Doing so will get recommendations dropped into their inbox when those authors release new titles, make new update, including blog posts, and otherwise tweak their author page.

But in order to maximize this feature, you need to have set up your author page and have all your books associated with it. Luckily, doing so is easy enough. Just log in to your KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing) account, click on Marketing, select which Amazon site you want, and then click Manage Author Page under Author Central. From there you can add books to your profile, select your author pic, edit your bio, and even add your blog feed.

Don’t overlook this step—it’s free and is one more way to help readers find you and connect. And hey, why not put the ‘zon to work for you? 🙂
