Just in the nick of time, Apple announced yesterday that it has expanded sales for books available in the iBookstore to 18 new territories and countries, mostly including Central and South America.
This is great news because it means Dr. Mark Van Stone’s 2012: Science & Prophecy of the Ancient Maya now is available in 50 countries globally, including Mexico, Belize and Guatemala, where much of the book features the history of the ancient Maya in a very scholarly way.
In fact, we’ve been agonizing over the fact that up until yesterday we couldn’t sell the book in such an important area of the world–one that gives honor and attention to this important civilization. Univision also has an interview they’re about to run with us and Dr. Mark Van Stone that will run throughout the entire Univision Spanish-speaking network. Now you can sense why this is so big for us. Had the story run before yesterday, millions would have been exposed to the work with no way to buy it. … Thanks Apple.
