Custom URL for Amazon Author Page

For those of you who have your books listed on Amazon, Kim Wolterman informed me you can designate a URL for your Author Page.  Here are the details from Kim:

Go to Amazon Author Central and click on Author Pages, and then log in.  You should see your page listing Biography, Blogs and Events on the left hand side and then Author Page URL, Photos, Videos and Twitter on the right.  Click on Author Page URL and it will show you if the URL with your name is available.  If so, all you have to do is accept it.  Takes about 30 minutes for the new URL to show up.

The link will redirect to another url, but it’s a neater, more memorable way to post your page and get your information out there.  My link – – is now live.  Thanks for the tip, Kim!
