Is it or isn't it?

Bit of a mystery... Is SHADOWPLAY available in the US as an ebook or isn't it?

It's definitely available in the UK, although as far as I can tell, only from the Random House site, in epub format.


Now, that link says it's only for download in the UK. However, the lovely folk are All Romance Ebooks have Shadowplay listed for sale in epub format, with a price in dollars, so I assume that US readers are able to purchase and download it there.


I may be missing something here, but it almost seems as if somebody doesn't really want people to buy this book in a digital form, because it's not listed at the UK Waterstones or W H Smiths ebook stores, and nor is it listed at the major US ebook outlets either.

Me, I'd love my books to be available in ebook form, because more and more readers are preferring ebooks over print books. Although I'll probably read some print books myself for years to come yet, I'm also going digital, because I read some titles on my Palm T3 and have now got a second hand Sony PRS-505 e-reader that I hope to start building up a library on soon too.
