Good luck, Ben - Any word on an e-book (preferably Nook!) version?

Thanks for all your good wishes.

Matt - it's very frustrating, but no, there is no word on ebooks in the USA. For whatever strange reason, my US publishers didn't purchase digital rights for the trilogy. They will in the future, I've been told, but I have no idea when. This, while ebook sales are rocketing up :confused: :(

Congratulations Ben. Who are your USA publishers? It is a bit odd them not purchasing e-book rights because as you say, this market is flying hard and fast.

Good luck with the book, Ben. Needs an e-book version, though.
