@author: Connecting Readers and Writers
We’re excited to announce a new way for readers to connect with authors and engage in the community around their favorite authors’ books. @author lets readers ask questions while they’re reading a Kindle book, or from an Amazon Author Page. You can see below which authors are participating in our beta release.
To ask one of these authors a question from a Kindle book, just highlight a passage using the 5-way controller, type “@author” followed by your question, and Share. We’ll tweet the question to the author and post it on the Author Page; you’ll automatically receive an email if the author answers your question. You can also ask a question from the Author Page of a participating author; look for the “Ask a question” link beneath the author’s biography or next to one of the author’s books if you want to ask a question specifically about that book.
Authors won’t be able to answer all questions, but readers can answer other reader’s questions from the Author Page too. If the author answers a question written from a Kindle book and you’ve chosen to follow the author on https://kindle.amazon.com, the question and the author’s answer will both become Public Notes in your book.
We’re eager to see the great questions you ask! Learn more.
