Amazon Author Central

Welcome to Author Central (beta), a free service provided by Amazon to allow authors to reach more readers, promote books, and help build a better Amazon bookstore.

We love books, and books begin with authors. As an author, you are part of a special community at Amazon. At Author Central, you have the opportunity to share the most up-to-date information about yourself and your work with your readers -- you can view and edit your bibliography, add a photo and biography to a personal profile and upload missing book cover images.

One example of how we share this information with customers can be seen in Author Pages. We created Author Pages as a simple way for customers to more easily find their favourite authors and discover new ones. (Take a look at Author Pages for Neil Gaiman and Ian McEwan.)

Author Central also helps you to enroll your books in programs like Associates and Search Inside the Book so that they are readily available for any customer to browse and buy.

If you're an author with a book listed in our catalogue, you are eligible to join Author Central. You can use your customer account to get started (or create a new one if needed).

As you begin to use Author Central, please don't hesitate to give us your feedback along the way. Our author service team is available to answer questions, accept suggestions and feedback, and provide any guidance you need.
