Your book is 'Live' on your bookshelf and you've created your Amazon Author Central profile and claimed your book(s) - now what? Well, log into your Amazon Author Profile and scroll to the bottom of the page. Amazon.com invites authors to join Shelfari and link to their books directly from their Author Central account. Using the same email and password you used to create your Amazon Kindle Author account, you can now join Shelfari and promote your book - free of charge. What could be better?
The quick and easy: Log in to your Amazon Author Central account and click on the 'Books' tab. A list of your book should appear. Click on one of your books. A new page will appear with your book in the center. Click on the third tab (immediately above your listed books) entitled 'Book Extras'. and on the new page that appears, In the first paragraph, you'll see a live link, click on it and Amazon will automatically open an account for you on Shelfari and add your book to the database under your author name.
Now, you could stop here, but I recommend that you fill out as many (if not all) of the data points associated with your book on Shelfari. Remember to make these entries accurate and enticing to prospective readers. When you're finished adding information, click 'Save' and then have a look around Shelfari for some books you might like to read.
Congratulations, you've just advertised your book! (Follow this process for each of your titles.) Now, send everyone you know to the 'Shelfari.com' site and ask that they post reviews, comments, 'like' it, etc. You're well on your way toward selling your books.
