About the Author launches in the UK

When readers find a book interesting, they look for more information about the author. We’ve developed a new feature, About the Author, for Kindle Paperwhite and Kindle Fire HD to help those readers. We are excited to bring this feature to the UK.About the Author gives readers easy access to your photo, biography, and bibliography so they can learn more about you and your books, which are only 60 seconds away. Readers can tap on any of your Kindle Books to go to the Kindle Store, and any time you update your bio or claim a new book through Author Central, we will update About the Author on Kindle so your readers have access to the most recent information about you.Be sure to take advantage of this new feature by following each of these steps:

  1. Claim all your books in Author Central. In the Author Central Books tab, make sure your bibliography is complete so that your About the Author profile is available in every one of your books.
  2. Make sure you’re happy with your profile page. All About the Author pages will use the image that you have designated as primary in Author Central. We encourage you to feature yourself in the photo.
  3. Update your biography in Author Central. Readers are going to your profile because they want to know more about you and your books.
About the Author is now available on the new Kindle devices. Log into Author Central today and make sure your About the Author profile is up to date.
