Since it's not allowed (or at least, that's my understanding) to put links to our published works in our capsules, would you consider putting a "My Books" capsule on the profile page? Our community is composed of writers many of whom I am sure have published or self-published books. I agree that it would be too commercial to put a lot of our own links or ads in our hubs, but would it be so bad to have a profile capsule where we could put a description of each of our works with a link to where to buy it? Or, If you want a royalty for that, could we not make an amazon capsule available within the profile pages so that we could make our books come up under their Amazon listings so that we can get sales and you can get the advertising revenue?
Not so. That's a common misconception of the "overly promotional" rule.
That rule says that in a single Hub, you can't have more than two links pointing to the same website. That means (for instance) there is absolutely nothing to prevent me linking to my flamenco book on every flamenco Hub. If you have your book listed on Amazon or eBay, you can also display it in the Amazon or eBay capsule.
There are two other provisos: the book must be related to the subject of the Hub, and you can't just write a Hub saying how wonderful your book is. The Hub must be useful.
Maybe have someone interview you on a book you wrote.
another idea is to pick a theme and include your book that relates.

I like to add in-text links when I'm talking about certain products as I not only think they are some of the most effective, but also some of the most helpful. What I don't understand is why there is a limit of 2...

Does anyone have luck with their Hubs being accepted to a niche site without their Amazon ad getting eliminated? I wrote a Hub in which I detailed my personal experience with a certain product and included an ad for it....
