Amazon Author Central

How much time does it take?

Set-up can take a couple of hours, but you won't need to update it nearly as often as social media after that.

The benefits of 'owning' your page are that you select your own books; you have control of your information; you can track your sales; and it improves Amazon searchability.


• Sign up to Amazon if you haven't already (just your regular Amazon signon), then visit the Author Central site and sign up for that too
• Add a photo and biography
• Add your blog feed and Twitter feed
• View and edit your list of books
• Add upcoming events
• Upload any videos (such as book trailers)

blogs and newsletters

How much time does it take?

Setting up a blog is a significantly bigger time investment than creating accounts on social media networks.

Consider having a professional designer create the site for you.

Aim to write new blog posts at least once a week. A blog that hasn’t been updated will quickly lose its audience.

We recommend WordPress as a good starting point for a blog.

Blogging Tips

• Cross-link your blog and your social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, GoodReads, etc.
• Make it easy for people to connect with you on social media sites by adding social buttons to each piece of content
• Post events such as book readings and signings or a new book coming out
• Link back to your book and author pages on our site

Newsletter Tips:

MailChimp is easy to use and has some great templates
• Newsletters are another great tool for reaching your audience
• Make sure the newsletter can be easily forwarded (links don’t break, graphics show up)
• Encourage recipients to forward your newsletter to their friends
• Every newsletter should have sign up instructions within its body and links to your blog or website and social media accounts
