I suspect the lack of e-book editions is a function of authorial laziness disinterest-- the original Keltiad novels were very likely not written on computer, and since she's now self-publishing all of her work, it would be a not-inconsiderable effort (or non-trivial expense) to set them up for electronic distribution. She's done Kindle-only e-versions of her newer mystery novels (which I have not read and am not much interested in), but that's as good as it gets

That said -- it turns out that there was, in fact, a collection of shorter Keltiad stories released in 2014. Tales of Spiral Castle includes one story reprinted from a Katherine Kurtz-edited Templar-themed anthology, plus one background tale each for Aeron, Gwydion, and Sarah/Sorcha. I am just curious enough to want to hunt that one down.

I agree with you that the Keltiad series would make fantastic video -- although I think I'd go for TV rather than feature film, because the books are dense enough that you could really easily do for them what cable did for Game of Thrones. Unfortunately, history suggests that PKM is not the sort of author who'd be able to let a gaggle of scriptwriters loose in her sandbox without sidewalk-supervising the franchise to death.

I didn't know about that collection! I am a little wary because Blackmantle was so awful, but I might risk it anyway. Thanks for the link!
