David Gaughran has more bad news to add to our original post about ebooks disappearing from Amazon: Most Kindle Direct Publishing books are unavailable for international readers who use the US Kindle Store.
He ran a random check of KDP books and found that about 80 percent of them were affected by whatever this issue is.

The Digital Reader reported last month that some ebooks were randomly being listed as unavailable for purchase on Amazon and shared a temporary fix.
Yesterday, though, he followed up with bad news: The situation is growing worse.
More authors are finding that they’re affected, and many are discovering that their listings are only appearing part of the time — in other words, you can’t confirm that you’re safe.
Oh, and to make matters worse, at least a few authors say the unpublish/republish trick mentioned in October doesn’t necessarily fix the issue.
Head to the original post for more details.
