The Right Way to Link to an Amazon Book

Front cover to my book, Chrome Cady: A Quote Woman on the Run

So, you’ve finished your book. I mean FINISHED: You’ve got it on Amazon and are ready to send links to the world.

So you go to Amazon, do a search for your book, and copy the URL:

https://www.amazon.com/Chrome-Cady-Quote-Woman-Run/dp/1540489418/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1488410783&sr=1-1&keywords=chrome+cady

Wowsers! That’s a heck of a link.

Wowsers, no it’s not: It’s a bad link for you to post because it actually contains too much information, referencing your own search. So look for the 10-digit book number followed by a slash

https://www.amazon.com/Chrome-Cady-Quote-Woman-Run/dp/1540489418/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1488410783&sr=1-1&keywords=chrome+cady

and cut off everything after it:

https://www.amazon.com/Chrome-Cady-Quote-Woman-Run/dp/1540489418/

There’s the link you want to put out there. Go for it!
