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



  1. Akinola, you are so wise to develop your Amazon Author page! Love how you’ve shared your branded URL, that Amazon allows you to create as part of the Amazon Author Central program. May this “online resume” exposure help you reach more readers as you achieve your dreams.

  2. I agree with you. An author page at Amazon can be used as a hub from which all other social media branches out. Good luck in your marketing endeavors.

  3. Akinola, your Amazon Author page is so important. What I was delighted to learn some months ago is that even anthologies you’re published in can be advertised on your author page!

  4. Hello Akinolaajani, You have a very interesting knowledge base to create the book and anti-terrorism. The subject is definitely needed as the people in the World face many challenges. Great job.
