Amazon's Secret Author's Pages
Amazon.com has made some changes over the last few months for authors, and there is now a little-known feature lurking in a sneaky place on the Amazon book listing pages. Provided an author or publisher has set it up properly, there is a special author's page that can only be found by going to a book listing and hovering (NOT clicking) your mouse over the author's name. A pop up window will appear with links to the author's page. Once there, it will list all of the author's books, plus other features. I have set mine to grab entries from this blog, and it will display the three latest entries.
I'm only mentioning this feature here because Amazon seems to be keeping it a secret from customers and authors.
