Talk about a missed opportunity.  I just looked at buying the Sarah Palin44156295.JPG
eBook Going Rogue on Barnes & Noble's Web site and at buying the Kindle version on Amazon.  It's selling for $9.99 and the hard cover is available in stores as of today.  But it's not available online in an eBook form or on Kindle until Dec. 26.  I have to say, if this Nook and Kindle are going to be a success, the industry is going to have to make the product available at time of release. 

Amazon yesterday hooked me, I will confess.  They had "pre-order" pricing at $9.99 for the hardback copy.  With shipping, I got it for $12.99 and though it likely won't be here until the end of the week, life is so busy now I wouldn't have had time to read it this week anyways.  But the Amazon price is still about $5 cheaper than the B&N hardcover price of their member price of $17.39.

And even at this writing, the hard cover price at Amazon is just $14.50

Over on the Borders Books Web site, you can "pre-order" the book still for $15.65

I went looking through Google as to why it takes so long to get an eBook produced.   I didn't really get an answer, though Google did pull up an answer as to why it takes so long to backup on a Mac and then even less relevant, "How long does it take to get pregnant?"  which goes to a broken link.  I guess it took too long to come up with an answer.

Any ideas from my author friends?
