I'm not seeing how to contact Hubs directly and I wanted to see if its ok to create a place for readers to buy online books. In Social Media there isn't a good place for Authors to spread the word about their work but there is a huge need for readers to be able to find books they want to read.
I was thinking of creating a place for readers to be able to click on the link of the book, picture and synopsis, that will take them to Amazon to buy the book.
Is this allowed instead of articles persay?
My only suggestion would be to write a review of a book, assuming it isn't your book, and provide an Amazon capsule with that book. Or if you are talking about your own work, write an article about the topic of your book. Let's say it's a cookbook, you create a recipe hub and provide an amazon capsule to buy the rest of the cookbook. I think that would be acceptable under the HubPages rules.
Yes you can do this easily.
As Anna Marie says, you would need to write a "blurb" for each book - but I'm sure you were planning to do that anyway.
Be aware, though, that each Hub is a separate article. It's not like a blog, where followers can be notified when you add some new material. So if you were thinking of creating a Hub and adding new books as they appear, that won't work because no one will know you've added a new book.
It's really not possible to do anything "instead of articles" on this site, because article writing is what HP is all about.
The activity you're describing sounds like it would be considered "overly promotional" which would be against Da Rules. Sorry.
If, however, you were to write articles reviewing particular books and then included Amazon links to purchase them, that would be OK.

I am confused about putting a product on my hub. I can do the product, but if I try to imbed the description, it is HTML. I cannot find an answer at Amazon or in the FAQ here. I am a new associate. Thanks.

In our most recent product review lenses, the Amazon product was the featured intro. photo. Can we continue to use those Amazon product images as our introduction photo or do we need to change them?

I understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not...
