Author Central Page
Being a good Author 101
About me: Lesson 1
Where do you start with teaching people more about who you are, well lets start with the Author Central Page on Amazon. It's a great place for people to get the basic information about who you are. Amazon allows us to edit several areas of our AC page so let's start with the basics of, how will people find my AC (author central) page.
Another way is for you to just share and advertise your AC page. There is a link for your Author Central page and it will look like this, with your information of course. amazon.com/author/yourname just like this no .com or anything. Type it into your browser and it should direct you to your page. If for some reason this does not take you to your AC page sign in. HERE. Once on your Author Central page click on the Amazon Author Page.
I will say the most important part about an AC page is to have some good images . Be sure your image are not dark and please don't use a selfie. Find a friend or a cousin to take some pictures of you. Outside images are great. I personally think that if you have a pet that getting a good pro looking image with your pet makes you look friendly. People love pets. Again, this is a business, so think of it that way you don't want a dark image of you inside the house by the Christmas tree. You want the best image you can get. My dogs are a part of my branding so I use them as often as possible.
Just to recap. Good images, add your twitter feed, your blog feed, do you have an Event coming up, do you have a book trailer, or an interview that you can up load. Also at the bottom there is a discussion thread where you can talk about your books. If you want to work on your AC page start here. https://authorcentral.amazon.com/
