Distribution Beyond Lulu-Land
I have just published my first book, and have so very much to learn. Today's question: Even though the book is now available on Amazon, even Amazon UK, I am waiting to see it appear on Book Depository before publishing a blog post alerting people about where they can get it. (Trying not to drive 'em crazy with excessive self-aggrandizing emails...) Does that happen in the global distribution phase automatically? Or do I need to request it? (I live in Israel; and for my friends here, Book Depository is the most user-friendly shipping service, if we don't have friends and family visiting from the States.)
Thanks for any wisdom you can impart -- and may you be successful and happy with your own projects!
