The book was published in 2013, but is still useful. It gives a good overview of the most important ebook stores and distributors and walks you through setting up an account on some of the distributors. Also includes information on how to find a translator, legal aspects of translations, and a list of ebook promotion websites.

Mostly focused on how to publish English ebooks in Germany. Contains detailed walk-throughs on how to set up an Amazon Author Central profile in Germany, how to use KDP promotions and other promo methods, including a list of blogs that will review English ebooks.
