Stephen King's "Joyland" won't be released as an eBook

For somewhat confusing reasons.

Stephen King's new novel of the year is Joyland, a hard-boiled crime novel about a college student who takes a summer job as a carny at a North Carolina amusement park and, as you might suspect, gets more than he bargained for. It sounds intriguing, to be sure, but I am more interested in why King has decided not to release it in eBook format.
