Postby Stumped » Fri Nov 12, 2010 7:10 pm

:cry: Ok, does anyone know if Eric is avialable for Kindle? I've been buying the series from book one, for kindle only, but when it comes to Eric...nada! *sighs* It's easier for me to read on Kindle!!!! :roll: Any help would be much appreciated, thank you.

Hi Stumped and welcome to the site. :)

Eric is a bit of a strange beast as far as the books go as it was originally published by a different publisher to Terry's other books. That other company own the rights and therefore decide what format to publish in. Eric was, originally, an illustrated book - hence the different publisher.

However, a quick look on Amazon.com shows that Eric will be available for Kindle - although it doesn't look like it is yet. :?

Hi Tonyblack, thank you very much for the welcome...and for the info!! :D I never thought there'd be so much red tape on a book. :shock: Cheers for the link. Let's hope they release it for the UK soon! Much appreciated.

Hi Stumped

I've not long purchased a Kindle either and would very much like to build a collection of Terry's work in Kindle Editions.

Sadly I've noticed that 'Maskerade' and 'Jingo' (probably among others as I haven't yet sat down to check by list) are not yet available on Amazon.co.uk's Kindle Store.

I thought I'd be proactive about it and contacted Amazon and Transworld publishers by e-mail last weekend in order to find out if they had plans to add them to the store any time soon. Amazon said that they would pass on my feedback to the publisher but I haven't heard anything back from Transworld yet.

Hopefully we'll get there sooner or later but I'll let you know when I get a response.

Sorry no news yet. Maria I know you have problems with RA, but the paperback of Eric is one of the thinnest books in the series. It might be worth looking at a copy. Heavens knows when it might be on Kindle. :)

Should be no problem. Its tiny. Even that new hardback was tiny for a hardback, though, I won't recomend that to you.

Stumped & Andrew.

I recently purchased a Kindle, via a friend with an Amazon account, which I didn't have at the time.

I now need to de-register from his account, and register to my new Amazon account.

Don't be surprised if in the next week or so you get HELP messages via PM!!

I just thought that I should note that I still haven't received any response from Transworld publishers as to when 'Maskerade' will become available.

Perhaps I should give them another shout when I've compiled a list of all of the Discworld novels that are not available for purchase on Kindle.

I'll keep you updated!

Bouncy Castle, did you manage to get your Kindle de-registered from your friend's Amazon account? I haven't had to do it myself, but I believe that the process is fairly simple.
