Get A Pretty Amazon Author URL

Quick Tip:

I’m sure most of you already know about this, but since I’ve just discovered it, I figured that perhaps not all of you know about it too.

It’s your amazon author URL.

You can make it look pretty like this:

amazon.com/author/traceyedwards

rather than just a jumbled mess of letter and numbers.  It makes you look more professional, and it’s much easier to link to.

So how do you get a vanity Amazon Author URL?

It’s pretty simple, just log into your Amazon Author Central page and navigate to the Profile tab.  Over on the right hand side will be your Author Page URL.  There will be a link to ‘get’ your url – once you click that then, poof, you have your pretty link.

  1. Wow. Thanks for the post, Tracey. I’ve got one story up, one more ready to put up tomorrow (if life doesn’t interfere), and then I realized, “Oh, no. I don’t have an author profile or anything.” Mind you, I’m writing under two pen names (more probably to come), and I have no idea what to put for them.
    But the info should be helpful. Thanks again.

  2. I had been trying to figure this out for ages and couldn’t work out why my name didn’t show up.

    Finally discovered that this is only in place for Amazon.com and not Amazon.co.uk (at the moment)

    Thankks for the heads up.

    Victoria
