Amazon Author Central Launches

An interesting new development by Amazon. They’re trying to bring authors and readers together. Author Central is a free service to provide authors with a chance to reach more readers, create interest and help build a better bookstore.

The official message by Amazon reads: “We love books, and books begin with authors. As an author, you are part of a special community at Amazon. At Author Central, you have the opportunity to share the most up-to-date information about yourself and your work with your readers”

If you want to see an example of how authors are engaging with their readers, take a look at Terry Pratchett. The Author Central is a work in progress but there is already a certain level of interactivity. Registered users will be able to add comments to their favourite author’s pages and hopefully see the authors responding to the comments. We’ll keep monitoring this new service.
