I've been right into overseas markets lately. More than once I've heard that the buzzword for 2014 will be global; and in author's NEED to think globally. Now, as most on AQC are from North America and have little insight to the European markets, that's why I found this blog to be so enlightening.
This blog talks not only about what's happening in the European, Asian, and other overseas markets, but gives readers distribution sites that Amazon and Smashwords don't. Now, some of these ebook sites you can get into via Kobo, and as Smashwords distributes to them, there's a chance your book could be there too. They say it's a 50/50 chance, but all mine are there. Some aren't open to directly upload yet either, but according to the blog, that's only a matter of time.
