How important is an author’s bio? For one thing, it directly impacts sales. An author’s reputation is one of the main factors that influences book buying. You have to assume that most of the people thinking about buying your book will not know who you are. They are looking for a reason to spend or not spend money on your book. A good bio helps them decide.
