I thought it was time to make other countries aware of my novel now that some traction was seen in the 'main' Amazon stores. I decided to start with India, because it's the only place I haven't sold ANY yet http://www.amazon.in/dp/B00G12TLRY
I'm still learning what book genres are popular there, their currency, and their download numbers, but interest seems to be picking up. Anyone else having any luck with foreign Amazon stores?

How are you advertising in India? Or any other "foreign" country?

Amazon isn't present everywhere. In the past, I've heard complaints about Amazon's download fee for people in South Africa and other countries. Not sure if they still charge a fee or not. Kobo doesn't, and I sell a few copies to countries in Africa via Kobo.

My first book is set to perma free and that gives me some visibility in other countries.
