Amazon just announced that it’s expanding into India.
May I be melodramatic?
I’ve been selling my Young Adult series, Shirley Link, on Amazon for a few months with great success. I crafted it for a young, international audience, so I’m particularly excited by this news.
It will be offering the Kindle at all Croma stores stores for 6,999 INR. But the BIG news for indie Amazon KDP authors is that they can sell in India now, too.
India is the second largest English-speaking population in the world. That means my potential audience just grew by tens of millions overnight. Remember, they don’t need to buy Kindles to enjoy my books. Now that it’s available there they can read it on many other devices as well.
I’ll be thinking on the ramifications of this move for the rest of the week. I plan on capitalizing asap. If I find any leads on the best methods of promoting there, I’ll post here.
It is really great news to all Indian Book reader lovers.
I my self an avid book reader past 25 years plus.
I recently acquired the Kindle Touch-with 3G and WiFi and it is awesome.
I am sure all book lover allover India take this opportunity of Amazon and enjoy reading their favorite books ………
Thanks for posting! Is there a site on the Web that originates in India where you go to find out about books? I’m trying to find ways to reach your country with my kids book series, Shirley Link.
Where in India was this picture taken- can anyone tell me?
