Amazon Tools for Authors

Added by Brian Schwartz about 8 years ago

Amazon is providing a wide range of ever expanding tools and resources for authors and publishers.

Here's a brief overview of the 'Amazon Writing & Publishing Universe':

Author Central

Where published authors can build an author page on Amazon. It also provides access to 'author evangelists' within Amazon to help resolve common problems and answer general questions.

Write On

Where writers can get advance reader feedback on their work.


Access to millions of book reviewers.

KDP ads for authors

I am recommending this over the Amazon giveaway option which has proven to be ineffective for our clients.

Kindle Scout

If you want to explore having Amazon publish your book, you'll need to gain support from the crowd here.

Kindle Worlds

For the fan fiction writers

Amazon Associates

Earn affiliate $ by promoting Amazon products


Amazon's print-on-demand option for authors


Amazon's Kindle publishing portal for authors & publishers


The entity you have to go through if you want to publish an audiobook on Audible (also an Amazon company)

Kindle Public Notes

You can see what Kindle readers are highlighting and sharing by title. This is a cool tool Amazon doesn't promote! Check it out at:

Kindle Publishing for Blogs

This is a slick platform to use to publish your web content in a 'serial' fashion to Kindle buyers. The service has been noted as 'beta' for over 5 years, so it's uncertain what Amazon plans to do with it, and it's one you'll never see them talking about.
