War Lord, Kindle Edition

Posted by on Aug 8, 2012 in Blog, News | Comments Off on War Lord, Kindle Edition

Some people in the US have found it impossible obtaining a copy of WAR LORD in Kindle. And it’s particularly in my case because my books are published officially in both the UK and Australia, but not currently in the US (which has created a bit of a hole).

So, this is the story:

War Lord coverAustralians (and NZers) could buy the book in printed and electronic form from July 24th.

Residents in the UK and the US could buy a copy of WAR LORD in paperback from August 1st (US readers pay a premium because the book has to physically make the journey from the UK).

But if you’re in the UK or US and you want the ebook (Kindle, for example), then you’ll have to wait a little longer till September 1st.
(The confusion has been compounded because I was told the book would be available in Kindle from August 1 and I passed that on in my newsletter. Apparently, though, the publishers have delayed this a month because they make more money out of selling paper than they do an electronic file and they’re reluctant to cannibalise their sales.)

So if you’re one of the (many) people that has complained about this to me in emails, does this explanation help?

I apologise on behalf of the publishers for the mess. Sorry, all. If you’re in the northern hemisphere and you want it on Kindle, the book’s worth the wait, I promise.
