Hi,
This my first time publishing, my ebook is in kindle store and paperback and Kindle unlimited. more than 3 days now.
I'm don't live in US.
I published it worldwide,
When I log in my account and check my bookshelf Both Kindle store version and paper back version is live.
I can see all countries there kindle store and also paper back version and kindle unlimited by clicking all the links of countries BUT for US only the kindle store stated unavailable of purchase however the paper back version is available.
Can I know the reasons for this?

Now I want to promote my ebook, I need to provide the URL link to Amazon US
Will the customers see the kindle store version available? Because I don't want to provide all links to all countries linking to my ebooks.

Thank you very much.

Also this is the link to the US Amazon, I'm seeing while other countries indicate the kindle store and paperback.

Sorry,

This is what I see when I do not log in to my account in Amazon and do a search for my book.
For US amazon as you check from the link below, I can see paper back version, but for Kindle store is not listed.

For other Amazon countries kindle store I can see paperback version plus the kindle store, this is what puzzle me.

I need to promote a link to my books and I can't possibly send all the urls of other countries amazon link. UK, AU. etc

It may be that all the varied systems have not yet 'clicked' in yet. Try it tomorrow evening.

But, you just put the link to the .com store in your post, so what do you think you're missing? You can't buy from a store that is not your own, so you won't get a buy link.

You either have to provide multiple links to the individual stores for your customers or use a service that does that automatically. Neither you nor customers can buy from a store other than your own, nor see it available for that matter.

I want to link to Amazon US, where other countries who don't have a kindle store in their country can purchase in Amazon US store (where I believe most of them are doing that like in the country I'm in, which they would purchase kindle book in Amazon US)

The questionable grammar in the first line of the book does not encourage would-be readers to continue:

"on a desert covered plain laid an ancient ruin...."

I think you will find that it should be 'lay an ancient ruin'

Later, your use of the word 'dove' for 'dived' is questionable.

You jump back and forth between old-fashioned dialogue (said John, said he) to modern US and UK usage (John said, he said). Choose one or the other style, but
refrain from jumping back and forth - it distracts and often annoys readers.

You also need some help with punctuation, especially as it concerns dialogue.

A competent editor can be of assistance.

As others have already said, and I have confirmed, the kindle version is on sale in the US, to people in the US. If your computer is outside the US, whether you are signed into your account or not, it will show as not available to you.

I see both print and Kindle editions listed.

As mentioned previously, if you want customers to go to the proper store, you either provide a bunch of links or use a service that sorts it out for you.
