Last week, we showed you the shortcut method to claim a book to your Amazon.com Author Central page. If you missed that article, you can read it here. If you want to do it the more reliable way, we’ll show you that method today.

Recently I’ve noticed that a lot of authors have released a lot of books. My powers of perception are amazing, aren’t they? I know, I know, it gives me chills, too. In any case, another thing I’ve noticed is that authors with multiple books seem to have lost interest in their Amazon.com Author Central page.

Well, I guess this week is Createspace week! Yesterday we have a post by our Dick Waters showing us how easy it is to create your own print title with CreateSpace. And, tomorrow, we’re having a CreateSpace like-fest!
Authors know that selling a book directly through CreateSpace (CS) yields a much higher royalty than selling through Amazon.com. So then, how do you entice readers to purchase your book through CreateSpace? Offer them a discount coupon. Maybe that sounds crazy, BUT, usually the difference in royalties is large enough that you have at least a couple dollars’ worth of room to move, so a discount code could help sell print books and make you a better profit!

Happy Anniversary Indies Unlimited – and may you have many, many more!
