A Boy From Nowhere
To insert a link, like that above is made quite easy for you by amazon. At the top left of the box where you're typing your message is a button that says "insert a product link", if you click on this then a pop up will appear where you can select a department and then type in the title of your book, when you select go then amazon will bring up what it thinks are the most relevant items for your search criteria. When I did this it just brought up your 2 books, you just choose the right product. Until your post is published it doesn't look like a link but gets transformed when your message is published.
There's a novelist called JA Konrath, who has a blog, if you google you should find it. If you work through his blog he's shared what's worked for him when he's been trying to publicise his kindle books. He's actually published the various selling prices he's tried, how many sales he got and what this meant commission wise.
I think you've been unfortunate in sharing your name with the author of The Cloud Atlas as from looking at your reviews anyone who has read your book has enjoyed it but this has been overshadowed by those people who expected something completely different from purchasing your book based solely on your name.
The only other option I can think which might help is to offer a few copies of your book for free in return for reviews. This seems to be quite a popular thing on goodreads.com or through your own website (although I wouldn't have a clue how to go about setting this up).
Hope I've helped a little, sometimes it's just nice to have a fresh pair of eyes - but feel free to tell me to butt out!
