#Easypromo. Sharing the preview of a book directly in your blog or page

Hi all:

I suspect many of you will have come across this already, but just in case you haven’t, or you want to see exactly how it works, I thought I’d bring it to you.

You know that Amazon offers readers (and window-shoppers) de option of looking inside a book or getting a sample of the book sent to their own reader or computer (wherever they access their Kindle reader, that is a free app). But before, if you wanted to share that with your readers in your blog, or one of your pages, you’d have to include the link, and they’ll be redirected to Amazon from there and then they’ll have to proceed from there.

Now, there’s the option of sharing it directly in your site.

It’s easy, as I show you in this video:

I leave you the link here (by the way, I think it might depend on the theme of the blog, as I’ve tried it in my page and it appears directly there but it doesn’t seem to here):


Go on, try it!
By the way, I’ve read that novel and love it! I hope to bring you the review soon.

    1. This one is a quick one, and you can just add it to any post where you mention your book or anybody else’s. It takes the same amount of time as going to Amazon to get a link… 🙂 I agree about so many things to do, though. I was talking to somebody about advertisements. Goodness!

      1. With my job, I still (even after 2 years) have to look at it as my “grand experiment in Indie”… So I try to only do things that are free or that I can do myself. I’ve done a couple of ads, but they were really meant to be as charity for schools who were selling ad space in their theater program booklets. Onward to the office! Hugs.


    1. Hi, Olga,
      Well, I have tried it, and it half works for me. The link appears and, when clicked, it takes me to the preview. But the image of the book does not appear to show up on my blog. My blog is an author blog, so I don’t think it’s to do with the subject matter. Any suggestions?
      I’m pleased the link works anyway, though.

      1. I have the same results, Christine, by using either the URL or the Embed, with and without clicking on the WordPress “LINK” add function: all it does it show the code, which I removed since it didn’t work to show the preview/look inside cover or anything graphic.


      2. I’m not sure why it works in my blog but not in this one, for instance, although my new blog is WordPress.org rather than WordPress.com. I must admit that some of the other links that they create in Amazon don’t seem to work at all. It would always be possible to just add the image and then the link under it if that works…
        Check how this one looks, for example:
