One of the most inspiring aspects of the book marketing challenge is the Amazon author page feature. Apart from marketing your book better and reaching out to readers more directly, it also gives the author an official image. The amazon author page can be described perhaps as the author’s ‘office’ where readers and other authors can check on him or her and find out more about the person’s books, interests and other aspects of the author’s life that were hitherto unknown. I particularly found it very useful as I was able to raise more awareness about my book and drive more traffic to my other social network pages. The author is also able to monitor sales which is of course very important as it shows how much your efforts at marketing your book have worked out.
I recently published my first book Operation Game Change which is Nigeria’s first counter-terrorism novel earlier in the year. The book details the current security challenges in Nigeria and proffers solutions to the menace. Details can be found at https://www.amazon.com/author/akinolaajani
