I’m just finding out tonight that my author central page on Amazon does not show up in any other market except the US one. In order for readers to see your bio, or pics, or twitter/blog feeds you have to create a page in each market you are available in.
I have decided that since I am in 243 markets I am NOT about to go through each one and wait for them to send me a passcode to verify my identity. I am going to hit the big markets in a mass blitz and then filter the others in as I go.
Another interesting thing I just found out tonight: my books are not available in Canada even though I clearly checked it. I will have to get to the bottom of that as well.
The author who discovered this is working with Author Central to see if they can fix this or if they have a simpler way of doing things. I’ll keep you updated on her progress as I learn more about this.
You may want to go to each market and get the links to your books and post them in a single location for easy copy and pasting for when you’re providing links. If you are just posting your link to your US (or your country) amazon account, other countries will not see them. So it might be handy to post them as these blogs are worldwide.
I will be working to get the links for other countries and maybe post them in my bio or about me page. I don’t know how much help it’ll be or if it’ll generate sales, but it can’t hurt.
