Now that the audiobook edition of Steal from the Devil has launched across all applicable retailers, there are some more details available on price and functionality!
The audiobook can be acquired through these routes:
Retailers set their own prices for the audiobooks, which they base on listening length and market factors.
The audiobook has been produced in line with the requirements for Whispersync for Voice and Immersion Reading, two features of the Kindle/Audible platforms. The former allows you to stop reading and start listening where you left off, or vice versa. The latter allows you to listen while the relevant text is actively highlighted, which is handy for language learners and non-native speakers.

As previously forewarned, the price changes have now been entered on the Kindle store. Readers probably have 8 hours at most to purchase Armada Wars novels at the old prices, before the new price structure takes effect. This time period is very much dependent on what Kindle region you use.
The new prices are as follows:
It has begun! The Kindle edition of From Shattered Stars is arriving now, for those lucky readers who live in Australia or use the Australian Kindle store. As midnight hits in the time zone for each regional Kindle storefront, the book will become available for download there. If you pre-ordered, and your device is connected, it will appear by fricking magic.
Three handy things to know:
The paperback edition is expected to land on the store and on Amazon before the end of June.
AmazonPrime has just been expanded to include free books and magazines. If you have Prime, you can now read all kind of books for the grand sum of £0.00 (thats $0.00 or €0.00, for those of you using funny money.)
Armada Wars books are not currently in the selection of titles, but watch out for them popping up. It's not immediately clear how Amazon will be selecting monthly or permanent titles but as ever time will tell. In the meantime, all the Armada Wars titles can be read for free through Kindle Unlimited!
The cost of the Kindle eBooks is likely to rise this summer, but in the meantime the prices of all Armada Wars novels have dropped today, which includes the pre-order of From Shattered Stars.
The USA now gets novels for $3.99 (still $2.99 for Steal from the Devil), and books that were $5.99 in Canada and Australia are now $4.99 in the respective currencies. Readers in Mexico, Brazil, India, and Japan also benefit from reduced prices across the board.
Because of the lower prices, all volumes which were $1.99 USD via Kindle MatchBook are now just $0.99.
In other news, the obsolescent .mobi file format has been dropped, and replaced with the more versatile .ePub format.
The posters for From Shattered Stars have arrived at last, and at A1 size (84.1 x 59.4 cm) in high quality print they look amazing! Like all the other posters, they are printed on heavy duty 250gsm silk paper, using a professional CMYK process which duplicates the colours reliably and beautifully.
There's a new value pack in addition to the old 3-pack, this one is of course a 4-pack containing all the posters for the main sequence novels. The price point of the 3-pack has changed to make it 15% off, and the new 4-pack gives you a chunky 20% off.

This bumper set contains all four of the A1-sized posters released so far, for the full novels, in one convenient and economical package. The set can be ordered with or without branding.
Printed on 250gsm silk paper using a professional CMYK process, each of these four high quality posters measures 84.1 x 59.4 cm. They will ship in a secure cardboard tube.

In addition to the previous simplification of shipping, the higher shipping rates for posters have now been scrapped. Everything will now be shipped at the same rate, governed by weight, whether the order contains paperback books or posters.
It does cost about £2.00 GBP more to mail a poster tube than a box of books, but Armada Wars is going to pay that difference.
However, since posters do require different packaging, please continue to order posters separately from other products wherever possible!
