When I saw the announcement that Amazon is opening Kindle store in Germany, I never thought my books would be available on Amazon DE as well. But then a few people said, "Hey, our books are showing up!" so I hopped on over to look myself up.
All four of my books are on Amazon DE! W00t! I signed up for their author central program, so my information, etc. is there (though in English...I have no idea how to speak or write German).
So cool. I love it that people can buy ebooks easily in countries served by Amazon DE.

This is Portia's first self-published title. She used my How to Format Your Manuscript for Kindle and Nook to create ebook files to upload to Kindle and All Romance eBooks. Isn't that awesome?
Portia is a fabulous writer and one of the sweetest people I know, and I hope you give this story a try!
Given the demand for the guide in Kindle and Nook formats, I've finally decided to put it on Amazon and BN. I have no idea if you can just copy/paste the snippets of code I provide in the book, as you can with the Smashwords edition. Nor do I know if you can just re-download updated editions should there be any. (I have, however, updated the book several times already, and probably will doing so if the process doesn't get too onerous.)
So please buy it from Amazon and BN only if you don't mind the possibility of having to type code yourself and/or the possibility of not having access to the latest updates for free.
And next week, I'll finally share my secret good news.
I've been getting several questions that basically involve the same type of topics, so I've decided to update How to Format Your Manuscript for Kindle and Nook. If you've bought it already, you can just re-download the latest version from Smashwords. The new edition contains information about what to do if you have a free WordPress.com account and a sample HTML mockup so you can see what everything should look like.
Also, several members on a writing forum I belong to were discussing how to track sales, and I thought I would share my sales tracking sheet. I've created it in Excel, and it calculates almost everything automatically, though you have to put in some information (such as the book's cover price) into the parts marked yellow, plus your individual sales data, of course. Click here to download a copy. It's a free tool for everyone.
You can modify it to track epub sales as well. I have a huge master Excel spreadsheet that I use to track everything, including my epub and self-pubbed titles, but I didn't include the epub sales tracking sheet in this one because it really depends on your situation, contract, etc. so it's harder to create a standard template.
I got some awesome testimonials / reviews from writers who used How to Format Your Manuscript for Kindle and Nook to create ebooks. Needless to say I'm thrilled that my guide was helpful to them as that was my primary reason for writing it.
