Instant Preview

Amazon introduced an interesting way to promote ebooks. It’s called Instant Preview. It a way of embedding, or including a link to, the sample of the ebook without having to go to Amazon first.

WordPress, or maybe my theme, seems to have a problem with the embed, otherwise a book would appear under this. Instead it looks like this:

When an embed fails there is the option to use a link.

Check out a preview of my ebook Transitional Zen & Conditional Juggling here (free today as a thank you, and $2.99 tomorrow)

And it’s easy to use. Amazon has added an embed link  on the right side of the ebook page in the share bar.

Inside the popup, copy the link or the embed code, close the popup,  and paste the code into your page.

Love this idea from Amazon.
