Tick tock, bermuda shorts, cross fire, 10th anniversary, 9th judgement, worst case, i alex cross, private

The list goes on and on of james patterson books available on kindle.

Are you buying them and having them not arrive? If so is your kindles wifi or 3g turned off?

@B. Walker: I live in Australia, and I can see James Patterson's books in the Kindle bookstore. Maybe they are not available in Canada, but that would be surprising.

Tick Tock isn't available for Canadians from Amazon but it is for Kobo and it's the same publisher. I don't really understand it.

The best you can do is contact the publisher.

Typing in "James Patterson" on the Kindle ebooks page brings up three pages of him

Here is the Kindle ebooks main page....type in any author, or book title and it will bring up kindle ebook only results.

@arizonareader: True, but that is for you in the USA. It is different for us in Australia, and it might be different again for those in Canada, like the OP.

found out you cant get them if you live in canada. Hows that for a load of CRAP!!!

@B. Walker: I hope that you pass on your complaint to the publisher, as they are the ones who make the decision to get the publication rights for the books.

I am in Canada and have found that I "need" two e-readers :), I have a Kobo and a Kindle, the Kobo store has the James Patterson, maybe the publisher deals with Amazon in the US and Chapters in Canada?

I have the same issue, some books I can purchase on Kindle and others aren't available on Kindle but are available on my Ipad book store......I contacted the publisher once in regards to why I couldn't purchase the books I wanted on Kindle and they told me it was Amazon, not the publisher, and that they are still trying to make there books available on all e-book it's hard to know what to believe, I was under the impression it had to do with publishing rights, however I'm seeing more and more books available on other e-book platforms here that are not available on Kindle. It's really frustrating ......

Miss Carol says:
You're responding to people who were having a discussion about this 3 years ago. Do you mean preordering books? That just could be the publisher - there's been a huge fight raging over this now for a while. Or if it's another country - once again, as people were saying in this thread, the publisher is the one who determines what countries get which books.

Geesh, why call up a 3 year old thread and respond to it like it's relevant to anything happening now?

You can get his books, as long as Hachette provides them to Amazon. They are in negotiations right now, and there's a post at the top of the forum that explains it.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 21, 2014 5:51:32 PM PDT
How am I to know who his publisher is ..... heck he doesn't even write the books just tacks his name on them. Geesh just send me the books !!! D'amazon!
