I’ve noticed that several of my author friends haven’t taken advantage of the Author Centrals on Amazon, so I’ve decided to make a post to get you started on the right foot.

Now, I’ll be the first to admit that it is a bit of a pain in the butt to set up the Author Central profiles for each Amazon store and that it sucks that they don’t have them for all the different countries. But at least I can make part of the process easier for you.

Below, I’m going to list the Author Central links I have found and what options are available for the that particular countries Author Central.

On a side note, they are in different languages, but they are almost identical so if you open them up side by side you should be able to get along just fine. If you’re still having problems, google translator may be your best friend.

US: https://authorcentral.amazon.com/
The most advanced of the Author Centrals. This one not only allows you to enter a bio and photo, but also allows you to link you blog, add events, and videos to your author profile.

UK: https://authorcentral.amazon.co.uk/
This one is inherently the same as the US Author Central, with the exception that you can’t link your blog to it.

France: https://authorcentral.amazon.fr/
Again, this is the same as the UK, you aren’t able to link your blog to it.

Germany: https://authorcentral.amazon.de/gp/home
Same as France and the UK.

Japan: https://authorcentral.amazon.co.jp/gp/join?ie=UTF8&language=ja_JP
Now this particular one you have to set up a new Amazon account for, but all that takes is another email address.

I hope this helps some of you guys!
