Readers frequently email to ask about the availability of my writing in ebook formats. The short answer is: most books, sooner or later, come out as ebooks. The timing varies from title to title, ereader by ereader, and country to country.
Prices change, too. For example, ebook prices for a title tend to drop after release of the corresponding mass-market paperback edition.

What about those of you who don't use Kindles or compatible readers (such as iPhones)? There's a good chance that the print publisher who reformatted a hardcopy book for the Kindle has (or will) do the same for other popular electronic formats. Check your favorite ebook outlet. And if something you'd like to read isn't available in the format of your choice? It never hurts to express interest to the print publisher in a polite email.
