Writing: Author Central Links

Do you have an author profile on Amazon? 

When you publish a book, Amazon does not automatically create an author page for you.  You or your publisher must upload/add your information into the Amazon template online.

I recently had to dig around trying to find the links for the foreign Amazon sites. Yes, you have to create each author page individually. Anyway, I thought I would provide the links, so you don’t have to waste time trying to find them. As of today, there are four Author Central Hubs.


If you have never done it before, you will need:
1. An amazon account, email associated with the account, and the password
2. Your current author pic
3. Any extra pics or video clips you would like posted
4. A well polished bio
5. Links to your social media, such as Twitter, etc.

If you would like a sample, click here for mine.

So, without further ado, here are the links to all of the available Amazon Author Central Sites:

United States: https://authorcentral.amazon.com/gp/home

UK: https://authorcentral.amazon.co.uk/gp/home

Germany: https://authorcentral.amazon.de

France: https://authorcentral.amazon.fr

Japan: https://authorcentral.amazon.co.jp/gp/landing?ie=UTF8&*Version*=1&*entries*=0&language=ja_JP

If you are using Google Chrome, you can right click on the page and there is a “Translate to English” option.

Happy updating!!

  1. […] What? You mean Amazon doesn’t autogenerate something for you? Nope. You need to do it yourself through Author Central. The beauty of this is that you can upload the pictures you want and update your author bio regularly too. You can look at mine here. Each country has its own Amazon site so you will need to set it up in the US, UK, Germany, Japan, etc. if you are international. Also, if you have an author webpage, make sure you include the link to it in your bio.I compiled a list to all the Author Central Sites here. […]
