Why not just link to the book on the Amazon store page?

(Don't trust KDP to publish a print edition. Don't trust CreateSpace to publish an ebook. Each does one thing well and the other thing poorly.)

Good luck! -- NJ

Better yet, open an account as an Amazon vendor then post your books to Facebook using vendor links. This will provide you with an additional slice of the pie if and when your book sells via click on that link.

Ian: Just grab the short link under the envelop on the right side of your book page. Post that in your FB message and the cover will populate. There is also a camera icon when you post a message. Tick on that and it allows you to upload cover, pictures, etc.

When I say 'grab' I mean copy and paste. I thought I'd better add that because not sure you understand the lingo yet. Best to you.

I think Facebook replaces any Associate link with its own, or anyhow that's what it used to do.
