Author profiles are important for creating an author brand | Amanda K.
Having an online author profile is an important part of any marketing campaign for every book. Readers want to see the author (or an author logo). It helps them get to know the person behind the book they are reading.
Having an author biography is equally important. An author doesn’t need to be long. But it does need one. Where is the author from? What do they like to do ? Why do they write in the genre they have chosen?
