Why are some new releases not available for the Kindle? Like Eden in Winter by Richard North Patterson. They are available for the Nook.

The publisher must release an electronic edition in a format the Kindle can access (which is not the same format the Nook uses). Seems they should release simultaneously, but that's controlled by the publisher.

That book isn't released yet. Even on B&N it is in pre-order.

What did the publisher say when you asked them?

Unless the OP is in France, that hardly matters.

or the UK, it's a UK publisher

the OP asked why it wasn't available - it is, just not to them and it has been released somewhere in the world. It's also possible that if they follow that link, they could go to the publisher's website and purchase the book there (it's what I have to do with a lot of books from Baen that aren't available in France through Amazon)

hmmm, and I guess we lost our Pro badges here now
