Amazon e-Publishing: A Question
So now I'm getting excited about my new idea. I go off to Amazon, click on the link that says Self-publish with Us, go to the Kindle Books section, click on Learn More and setup an account for myself.
Easy. Great :-)
Not so great... When it comes to filling in the rest of my account info (the info that is necessary in order for me to be able to publish something) I get asked for my US taxpayer info and my US social security number. Neither of which I have!
So then I get directed to the IRS website to apply for this stuff...
My question to you: Are you a non-US citizen, residing in a non-US country, who has e-published with Amazon before? How much of a mission is it to get this tax number stuff sorted out? What was the process and how long did it take?
(Ok, so that's several questions... Sorry!)
