I believe that Barnes and Noble offer a few different formats on their website, if I can find a more definite answer for you i'll post a link.

Actually, there is nowhere, I've found, that is selling the book in a true .pdf format.

The closest thing to pdf you're gonna get is a .acsm file. Which is an Adobe Digital Reader file. All you have to do is download the free program to view.

I had a dream last night: I was in a bookstore and I found it displayed with lots of The First Codex (Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel Books 1 to 3 Boxed Set). In addition to the first three books of the series, included inside the box is a printed version of The Death of Joan of Arc. That just sent me drooling in my sleep... flamelssecret/sFun_drool2.gif flamelssecret/sFun_drool2.gif flamelssecret/sFun_drool2.gif

While there are no plans for a printed version right now, there is always hope for the future

Per Mr Scott....
However, when I write enough short stories for the Lost Tales, then perhaps it will appear in a printed book.

Since e-books are not exactly the tsunami the money men wish they would be, it would be nice if authors would refrain from e-book only exclusives. They exclude about four fifths of the fan base and almost resemble a subtle corporate blackmail to invest in a technological luxury we really don't need or, the market seems to demonstrate, want. Please publish The Death of Joan of Arc in REAL print format soon. Thanks.

Karris, please read your 'Welcome' PM, this is a forum whose ethos is friendly, positive discussion, the tone of your post is far from either of those principles.
Michael does not choose the format of the releases, that is down to the publishing company, it is the publishing house that you need to address on this matter.
As it happens, there were very many fans, and many of our members who were extremely happy to have an ebook release as it means they can take it with them and read it on the ereaders. They were also happy at the very low cost, printed books are naturally more expensive, furthermore, the members here enjoyed the privilege of being able to read that story for free on our sister website, the Portal.
I do not know where your figure for four fifths of the fan base not being able to read it came from, that is certainly not our experience at all.

No, it's not Kindle only. It's not available in printed format but the purchase sites do have it available in formats that can be read on your computer some also offer free software downloads if you do not have the correct reader for the format they have.

I see that Zephfire has already responded to you, but let me add this. Authors make very little money from digital editions, or ebooks. The Death of Joan was published .99 cents. My share of that is, as you can imagine, tiny.

Authors also have very little control how their work is published, or in what format. I do not decide hardback, paperback, A, B or C format, or digital. That is entirely up to the publishing company.

However, as a member of the forum, you would have had the opportunity to download the short story on two separate occasions.

And this Christmas, I hope to be able to offer another story exclusively to the Humani of Flamel's Secret.

Let me also add that digital editions are not the future, they are happening now. I believe that digital and paper will co-exist for a long time, and that books will appear in both formats. The tipping point for digital editions has already happened and we are now seeing sales of digital editions outstripping print editions for certain titles. In Japan, digital now regularly outsells paper. James Patterson and Stieg Larsson have sold over a million downloads on kindle - without impacting on their paper sales.
