Hi Kindle,
I have published an ebook and have received email that it has gone live and for purchase. But, I just cant seem to search for the ebook be it through title, or author. Can help?

It takes a few days for all of the computer system ends to kick in. They say give it a few days after you get that letter.

Go to your Bookshelf, click "View on Amazon," then choose the store you want to see it in. I believe Amazon searches are biased towards keywords since that is how most customers look for books.

Thank you! managed to view the ebook. I can see it for most countries except US. It says 'This title is not currently available for purchase'. Is there something I did not set correctly?

Good querry. There are bilateral negotiations about trade, etc. That may include this "thing" but do we expect a piker
like You Know Who to know this stuff? We are pikers ourselves. We here shall ask some union for advice. At our
next Con. In person. They may know. They also have a mostly medieval fantasy oriented craft fair. Also, for
$40 you get three days of free booze and food. Be there. Somewhere in the City of Evil Towers.

If your account is not with .com, the e-book will not be available to purchase for you. If you log out of your country's account, you'll be able to see it on .com as it is seen by Americans and people in countries without a store. ... otherwise, the computer knows where you are and that you should not be buying from .com.
