You can always email the publisher or join a mailing list for ebooks.

Hi, my question is how can i actually get in touch  with the publishers of 
to see if they have electronic versions of the  books available from the 
beginning?  This is the question that i have  because i'm taking classes this 
term and i want to make sure that i have access  to the textual material in the 
books at the same time that my sighted  counterparts do.  Is that too much to 
ask and it could definiately cut down  on having to depend on rfbd because they 
are a good place but because they don't  have a great number of volunteers who 
are knowledgable about certain subjects  and the fact that it takes a year at 
the least before a book is completed.   What choices do we really have.
