In my last posting was worried about unavailability of my book in my own homeland.
Repetitions of problem cant help but my dear blog friends came up with a few suggestions.
First of all I will publish through amazon and maybe maybe it will be available. Even though they have said it multiple times but you never know.
Now suggestions, with problems:
1. I can order to some friends’ relative’s place in country where its available and get them delivered.
Problem: I would be incurring cost to get my books to people which is so weird. This is not why I published a book in the first place. I was it to be available for purchase to people who want it.
2. Try amazon website of different regions. These is again just luck. But sharing links to all of them doesn’t cost anything.
3. I can order author copies, that I probably get at lower price and sell them on my own at whatever price I want on my blog or wherever.
Problems: as far as i remember author’s copy comes with the tag of “not for resale” and it still doesnt solve availability problem. And again it would be me giving people copies of my book rather than they purchasing it from where I have published it.
The things is if I just have to give my friend printed copies my 2 close friends who really want to buy swinging sanity already have manuscript. They want to be part of this journey, this process with me.
So, I think I will just take first chance and published it. Before that i have to work on my email list and travel the whole path I did for ebook.
Honestly I lost hope and I just wanted to stop, but when I have come this far, I will only regret later.
Well. So I will just go on to do what I planned. Everything is going be a little late but that’s ok.
And I will keep on trying to do anything I can to resolve this issue I have written to kdp multiple times over the year, let’s hope they expand their market for kdp content too.
And btw in case you are publishing from a region where Amazon doesnt do bank transfers, there’s something called payoneer, you probably know about it already.just go to KDP discussion forums and look up “payoneer”.
I’m close to my $100 check so I will wait. Nut might look into it later.
There is a lot of learning to do. But I think its just going to help me.
It’s exhausting tbh. Not gonna lie.
But when you choose a difficult path, prepare for challenges on every turn.
Ps. In case you are wondering kdp content is not available in following counties.
Here is the list provided by them.
United Arab Emirates
Iran, Islamic Republic of
Korea, Democratic People’s Republic of
That’s all for now..too tired.
