where do I add testimonials and reviews to my book

Hi everybody,

I have some testimonials and positive reviews I got for my book.

I want people to see these when they see my book for sale in amazon, in the book description.

Where do I add that? When I get into my Project Homepage/Description there is no place for adding such information.

Thank you for your help

I believe you can do this through Amazon's Author Central, but I've never used that service so I can't give you exact instruction.

Correct, you can add them to the book description (overwriting the description that trickles down from the CS setup) or a separate section for editorial reviews.  Both are fairly easy to find within the Author Central options.

Just as Sara and Dan explained, you can use AuthorCentral to add testimonials to your Amazon Product/Book Detail Page.

 

You also have a couple more options:

 

  1. The most obvious, it to get the people who wrote those testimonials/reviews to post their reviews themselves directly onto your Product/Book Detail Page.
  2. As explained in the previous posts: use AuthorCentral (a free service) to upload the testimonials/reviews personally.
  3. Use AmazonAdvantage (annual fee) to upload the testimonials/reviews personally.

 

It just so happens I recently wrote an article on my CreateSpace blog about Author Central, you might find it useful:

Hope this helps.
