You need to open an iTunes Connect account.
When you submit your book to the review team.. it will appear in your iTC account as "UNDER REVIEW".
Within iTC you will find Territory and Price Rights. You can select which countries you want your book available or conversley select ALL and DEselect any country you do not want your book to appear.

Thank you so much for your help.
Do you know how long it takes for a book to be approved by Apple? I just sent in my first chapter for trial, and it works now. But just wondering how long it might take for a full book to be approved.

Its always difficult to say how long it will take the review team to get around to your book.
You should be aware that they may find issues with your book and notify you that it has a "ticket". The ticket should indicate what needs to done to correct the issue and be re-delivered using the same Vendor ID and files ( now corrected).
IF your book is OK at first review, you will see the red dot under your book in iTunes Connect change to green.
Usually before that you will have an email to notify that your book as been passed to the iBookstore. After that it can take - 7 - 14 days before you will see it "online". BUT there have been reports here that books have gone through in hours rather than days.. so its really a case of "wait and see" and be patient because it can be frustrating waiting... but it will apear eventually.
