Did you know that there is a way to shorten links to your books on Amazon without going to third-party sites like Bit.ly? It’s true! Take this link, for example, which goes to A Time To Build:

But all you have to do is edit it, like this…
…and it goes to the same page! Magic! Well, no, it’s not magic, it’s technology! This little feature is probably documented, somewhere, but you’ll tear your hair out looking for it. The set of characters in the link is your book’s ASIN code. Keep this little trick in mind, and you’ll soon be Tweeting your books like the pro you are!
