Around the World in 80 seconds, give or take a few . . .

19 Aug

No, not in real time, that’s for sure. But I’ve noticed that a lot of folks are not aware of the world-wide presence of Amazon. Even more so, for Kindle. So, here we have a ‘show-and-tell’ glimpse at the global reach.  There are currently eleven other Amazon sites around the world. (China is temporarily not available, but all the others are.)  For instance, here’s a screen shot of the US page for my newest novella. (Might as well pitch myself, right?)  Kindle books that are available to US readers living in the US are not available to us from the UK site. Actually, I’m not sure that a US resident ordering from the US can purchase from any of the international sites, and that’s not the purpose of this post. It’s only to demonstrate the fun of seeing one’s book being available to readers all around the globe!

(Apology because these didn’t all cooperate like I wanted them to. They moved around to suit themselves! However, if you click on any of the pix, they will enlarge. I hope that helps!)

 

1 Bella - US The UK page is not very much different, although we are one people separated by two languages. Or however that goes.

2 Bella-UK

The fun starts really, when you take the chunnel over to France.

3 Bella-France

Or Germany

4 Bella-DE

Or Italy

5 bella-Italy

Or Spain

6 Bella -spain

But  suppose you want to go in the other direction:  Here’s Japan

7 Bella - Japan

Here’s India

8 Bella - India

And here’s Australia

9 Bella-Australia

Or go north to Canada, another great country with fewer language difficulties, as a rule.

10 Bella-Canada

Or south, to Mexico:

11 Bella-Mexico

And finally, our last stop  — Brazil

12 Bella-Brazil

There now! Wasn’t that an easy trip?  Thought so! In spite of the confusion, I hope you enjoyed my little travelogue! Now you should aim for the day when your books are so readily available world-wide!
