Another innovative Kindle capability
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.
