Wouldn't you love it if Amazon.com helped you grow your author platform and find new readers?
They do! It's called Author Central, and you not only can but SHOULD get (or update) your account right this minute. It only takes a few minutes to set yourself up for success.
As an author of a published book (or a chapter/story in a published book), it's vitally important for you to have a robust Amazon Author Profile. That's how you really set yourself apart as a real professional author.
With your Author Central profile complete, you can:
Add your blog to Amazon so your new posts automagically appear.
Add your Twitter account so readers and potential readers can see your tweets.
Add photos and videos that make you come to life for current and possible customers.
