Just after I got my Kindle, I pre-ordered the newest Temeraire book: Tongues of Serpents. It was set to be released in July, and as I love the series so much I put it on pre-order so I'd have it as soon as it was released.
A couple of months later (two months ago), I was looking and noticed that the book was now marked as Not Available for Australian customers. Naturally I was pretty annoyed, as many of the books I want to read are not allowed in Aus and here was yet another one. I blame the stupid publishers who don't understand eBooks - if I can buy an American paper book and ship it over to Aus, why can't I buy an American book and download it in Aus?
Anyway, my pre-order was still in my account so I decided to wait and see what happened. I resolved to call Amazon and complain if it was cancelled.
Last week I was checking my emails, having completely forgotten about the book, when I saw an Order Confirmation from Amazon... That's Odd I thought, as I didn't remember actually buying something. So I opened it and saw Tongues of Serpents listed!! Within seconds I had my Kindle out and found my new book!!
Even though it is still marked as Unavailable in Australia, Amazon honoured my pre-order and sent me the book.
Thank you Amazon, you are awesome.
