Get an ASIN When Your Book Isn’t in the Amazon Kindle Store

You need a valid ASIN if you want your book to have a book cover when it is downloaded to Kindle e-readers and Kindle For PC. Learn why here.

If your book IS in the Kindle store, learn how to locate its ASIN. But what if your book is exclusive to your newsletter subscribers and you don’t want it available on Amazon?

Get An Amazon ASIN

A delightfully brilliant BookFunnel author discovered a workaround! You can publish the book to Amazon and then un-publish it as soon as it has its ASIN. Amazon will still send your book cover to Kindle For PC/Mac and Kindle e-readers, even after you have unpublished the book.

So if you really want the covers everywhere (Kindle e-readers and Kindle For PC readers make up 3-4% of total MOBI downloads on BookFunnel), that’s an option. It’s a little clunky but it works. 🙂

If you have already uploaded your book and need to add your ASIN after the fact, it is easy! Learn how to edit your book here.
