He joins Stephen R. Covey,the author of “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” in signing an exclusive eBook deal with Amazon.

Here’s more from Coelho’s statement: “The great opportunity that Kindle offers to a writer is that it allows readers who are not in their country and do not have access to their local bookstores to immediately access texts in their mother tongue … Therefore, it is with great joy that I now see all my books in Portuguese, so far only available abroad in a few specialized bookstores, being just a click away from all Portuguese readers that are around the world.”
