Q2: How do I get your eBook on my Kindle?

A: If you purchase my eBook directly from Amazon.com, it should sync to your Kindle or Kindle application like other Amazon purchases when you refresh your book list after logging in with your Amazon.com Kindle account.

Q4: I don’t have an eReader yet. How can I read your eBook I bought and downloaded?

A: A variety of free programs are available which support the standard EPUB eBook format. Download and use one or more of the following programs compatible with your computer’s operating system:

  1. Kindle for PC or Kindle for Mac
  2. Calibre
  3. The FireFox web browser and the free EPUBReader plugin
  4. Adobe Digital Editions
  5. Nook for PC and Mac
  6. Microsoft Reader (Windows only)

Amazon offers a free Kindle for PC and Kindle for Mac programs, but these do NOT currently support EPUB eBooks. They will, however, read .MOBI format eBooks. If you purchased the .MOBI version of my eBook you can use Amazon’s Kindle software programs to read it.

This seven minute screencast shows how to download the standard ePUB eBook, download and install Adobe Digital Editions, and open the ePUB eBook in it.
