How to Start Selling Books on Amazon
Make your photo book available to sell in the largest online book retailer in the world. Choose a book from your dashboard, and click 'Sell my book'. Then set up a preview, complete your author profile, and write an enticing description for your book. Embed a preview on your blog, then share your book on social media with a comment about how to buy it. Share excerpts in follow-up posts. Want to see the bigger Self-Publishing picture?
