CAN'T FIND MY KINDLE E-BOOK IN AMAZON

My first Kindle E-book called "CALL OF THE FUTURE" went live on 6th August 2017 and the paperback version is still in review.

Checked within Amazon website and searched my E-book, but did not find it not even with the ASIN or ISBN number. It is not included in the Amazon book list in any genre.

I have sent the books URL to my friends and colleagues, but they are saying that the page showed up but they did not see any link or button to purchase the kindle version.

Can any one please explain, why my e-book not showing in Amazon/Kindle Book List or in New Release or specific genre list?

Why people or even I can't see the place order button?

And the look inside option is not enable with my title?

Hope to get your feedback soon. Thanks.

Dear NotJohn,

Thanks for the reply.

Unfortunately, me or any of my acquaintances can't see the page as you described.

Firstly, the title is not in Kindle E-book list, Therefore, they can't view or find it by typing the title name in the search option or scrolling down the title list. Then how can the possible readers find/see my title.

Secondly, only those who have received the URL from me can find the page but they can't see the options to buy as you described?

Could you pls help me on this?

Thanks.

I'm in the US. On the US site, your book title shows up when searched, the book is available for KU or purchase, and the Look Inside is present.

People who are in countries that do not shop at the US store will not see what I see. Instead of the buy box, there will be a message telling them to visit the Amazon appropriate for their country, where the buy/borrow buttons and Look Inside should appear.

If you're sending the URL for the American store to everyone regardless of where they live, those with local Amazon sites will get a nonfunctional page.

It's functioning just fine. Whatever your problem is, it is not with the book listing.

Are you not reading the bloody posts or do you just not understand what you've been told? Your book is available in the US store:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074LG6SC6/

Your customers have to use their own storefronts. Only people in the U.S. or not having a national storefront can see and buy it from the U.S. site. In order to see or buy the thing, your customers have to be smart enough to know which Amazon store they're supposed to use.

Of course it's functional. Of course they can see it. And they can buy it IF Amazon.com is the place where they buy ebooks. You have just thrown out the Amazon.com link to a bunch of people (including yourself, apparently) who don't buy ebooks and don't know how to go about it.

If you want a universal link, go to a service like BookLinker dot net. That will lead the blind to the right store.

Good luck! -- NJ
