Do you mean one that you have published thru Amazon?

If you have a website, an ebook, and an Amazon Associate account, you can and should use that link to sell your book. I suspect I get most of my sales this way (I have several topical websites) because most of my books aren't easily searched for on Amazon and they don't rank high enough to be displayed on the first screen of returns.

And the best part is, every once in a while the cookie sticks long enough for the shopper to go on and order a big-screen TV, a Colorado rafting trip, or a mattress. I never knew how expensive a mattress could be until someone bought one after clicking through one of my links. I like to think of him on his eight-hundred-dollar mattress, reading my book....

Good luck! -- NJ

I keep waiting for that to happen on my affiliate account but it hasn't, so far. All that my "clickers" seem to buy are e-books.

You inspired me to check out my December affiliate earnings. Not surprisingly, they were good:

Total Items Shipped: 127
Total Earnings: $124.96
Total Ordered Items: 129
Clicks 1,120
Conversion: 11.52%

And that wasn't just a one-big-ticket purchase, either, like the famous Colorado rafting trip for two. The top earner this month was a drum set, with a referral fee of about $16, on December 23. I hope it reached the buyer in time!

Someone bought their kid a KidKraft Vintage Kitchen in Blue and another person bought an Echo Dot. So that got me almost five bucks. Woot!
