How well do your books sell in other countries? Personally, I've only had a handful of scattered sales. Many of the mailing lists I advertise with are only targeted at the U.S. market. (I think eBookSoda is an exception, as it seems to be based in the United Kingdom.) What marketing is most effective in other countries? Well, the best way to find out is by talking to other indie writers, and a new website called Authorbuddies will help you do that. (I just learned about them through Passive Voice.) By signing up with this free service, you can network with other authors, find out what works in their country, and help them learn what works over here. I haven't signed up yet, but I plan to. If you're familiar with this site, please comment and let us know what you think of it.
