India beckons.

Big news from Amazon. They are introducing Kindle to India.
A huge English speaking market.
We writers need to take heed of this. The potential there is simply huge.
I’ll be doing some research and trying to see how to make an impact.

    Thanks David! While you’re investigating, do you have any clue why AmazonUK does not carry any of the reviews of our books that are found here on Amazon U.S.A. website? I hope that India will see the value of having reviews available for their customers.

    Hi Marcia, I’m not sure of the detail but I know that there is a completely separate sales set up for Amazon.co.uk. Reviews are linked to sales. Therefore the reviews from readers who have bought from co.uk appear but Amazon.com only show if a reviewer goes on to .co.uk and adds their review. It will appear but will not be shown as being from an Amazon customer.
    That’s how my review of your work got there.
    I suspect the same applies to all the Amazon sales areas that have a national Id. Like Germany, Italy etc. India seems to be handled through Amazon.com so reviews should be OK.
