Some fans have expressed an understandable frustration regarding the delay between the release of the hardcover and ebook. There were several reasons for this. The primary reason is that Harriet recognized that traditional booksellers were very supportive of Robert Jordan over the years. By initially releasing only physical copies of the book, it helped support their business at a time when eBook sales are becoming more and more normal. Harriet believes in a world where brick-and-mortar bookstores are pervasive and successful.
No, [the reason for delaying the ebook] wasn’t a selfish reason. The brick‑and‑mortar bookstores were very good to Robert Jordan throughout his career. They are having a hard time now. This was a chance for Robert Jordan to give back to people who had been very good to him for 20 years. That was really the main reason for the windowing.Harriet McDougal (Tor.com excerpt)
