Author Central

Amazon Author Central lets you create your Author Page where you can share the most up-to-date information about yourself and your books with millions of readers. It helps readers find your books easily and in one place.

In Amazon Author Central, you can:

  • Add your books to your Author Page
  • Add your biography in different languages
  • Add photos and videos (Non-US feature only)
  • Check Amazon Best Sellers Rank
  • Check Customer Reviews
  • Add Editorial Reviews for your books (US feature only)
  • Check BookScan sales information (US feature only)
  • Check the number of Amazon followers

Author Follow

The Follow button can be found on your Author Page or book's detail page and it allows Amazon customers fans to add you to their favorite authors to learn about you and your new books as they become available.

Your followers will be notified of your book’s release or availability for pre-order on our website if your book is eligible, your followers allow marketing emails from Amazon, and if they haven't already placed an order for your new book. Your followers are also more likely to see your new releases while browsing on Amazon.

For your book to be eligible for Author Follow, you must add your book to your Amazon Author Central account.

The number of followers you have doesn’t affect your Amazon Best Sellers Rank on our website.

You can check the total number of Amazon customers who are following you by accessing your Amazon Author Central account. Learn how to get started.
