How do you create a new Author page on Amazon?
« on: December 15, 2017, 03:13:40 PM »
I already published the book, but I'm changing the author to a pen name.  Is there any way to put this on a new Author page?   Or do I have to contact Amazon?

Thank you! :)

Unless I'm misunderstanding the question, your process should be:

  • In Author Central, remove the book from your original author name.
  • Create a new account on Author Central under your pen name.
  • In KDP, change the book's author to the pen name.
  • Go to Author Central and, logged under as the new account, add the book to the author page.
  • Wait.

You might need to wait a couple of days for any changes made on Author Central to actually filter through Amazon's servers.
