Managing Your Profile

Help existing and potential readers get to know you by showing them your photos, biographical information, feeds to your blogs, videos, and a calendar of your events. Information you add on the Profile tab in Author Central appears on the Amazon.com Author Page.

The Author Page is your chance to tell readers something interesting about yourself, so make sure you include any details about your background, awards you have won, other books you have written, and personal details customers might want to know. Your author photo doesn't need to be professionally created, but should be a high-resolution image for quality display.

If your Author Central account has already been activated, your information should appear on the Author Page within 30 minutes. If your account hasn't been activated, we'll save the content you provide and post it as soon as your activation is complete. You won't need to do anything else—we'll send you an e-mail and let you know when the Author Page is ready with your content.

Adding or changing the information is easy. Click a link to see instructions.
