Since more and more book buyers are purchasing books through Amazon and other online retailers these days, it’s really important to take advantage of these online publicity tools.
Think of your Amazon Author page as a “virtual” flyer about you and your books, distributed to your fans and followers– and new readers too. It’s easy to update and absolutely free. Go for it!
