The BOOKS Tab Not surprisingly, the books an author has claimed will be found under the Books tab. Clicking on an individual book title opens a page that allows customization of the editorial information that will appear on the Amazon.com page for the title including: Review Product Description From the Author From the Inside Flap From the Back Cover About the Author Each of these areas are customizable and in most cases, the more information provided on the book sales page, the more likely a customer will make the purchase. It is well worth the time to ensure the information this page contains is thorough and accurate.

The SALES Tab

The Sales tab gives the author details of book sales via BookScan as well as current Amazon Bestsellers Rank information. Data is provided not only for the number of books sold in a given period but also for the geographic location of the purchasers.

The CUSTOMER REVIEWS Tab

One on one interaction goes a long way, and with the Customer Reviews tab the author is able to see a list of the reviews a book has been given by customers and also to respond directly to each one. An active and involved author is engaging, entertaining and informative.
