Do I need an account before I can order?
No, that is not necessary. During the checkout process our software will check for an existing account, and if none is found, a temporary password will be sent to you along with your order confirmation. Then simply use the "Login/New Account" link, enter the email address you used to place your order and your password. You will be taken to your Home Page. There, under MY LINKS you will find a link to your eBook Library, as well as a link, under ACCOUNT SETTINGS to update your password to one more easily remembered.

Look for the Login/New Account link at the top left of any page. Click on that, and then enter your registered email address and password.

2. eBooks
How do I read my books?
eBooks can be read offline using any compatible device. You can use a reader or app installed on your computer, tablet or phone. For more information on installing your book on many popular devices, please refer to section 3 below:
Which e-Book formats are available from your Website?
Available formats are listed for each eBook. Most are available in ePub (eBook reader) or MOBI (Kindle) format. Some are available in PDF, which can be read on a computer or hand-held device with the appropriate app or software. Some are only available in PDF format.
Can I download more than one available format?
Your purchase is only for the format you specify on your order. You can obtain additional formats, but each one will be regarded as a separate purchase, with its own entry and link in your eBook Library.
I have added the wrong format to my cart. How do I change it?
Click on the cart icon to go to your cart. Delete the incorrect item and then return to eBook store and reselect.
How long will it take to download my book?
Normally anywhere from several seconds to several minutes or more, based on two key factors: your Internet connection speed and the file size. File sizes for each book are listed under Product Details, to be found near the foot of the page. Sizes vary from under 1MB to over 10MB, depending on the content and file type.
For how long after my purchase can I download my books?
We will maintain your download link on your account indefinitely. We ask that, in turn, you keep your account login details secure, and do not let anyone else access your Home Page. We monitor for access by alternative IPs, or excessive downloading, and may contact you if we have any concerns.
How do I download my PDF file? When I click on it the file opens in my browser.
Not all browsers recognize the immediate download request issued when you click on your book. If the file opens in your browser window, look for a download link, which may be in the form of a down arrow (↓). Alternatively, right click on the screen and select "save as", and then click on the save button or link in the next window.
I do not see the title I am looking for on your Website. What can I do?
We augment our content regularly. If there is a specific title you want please let us know, and we will see if it can be added to our inventory. This is not always possible due to restrictions on distribution imposed by many of the major publishers.
3. eBook Installation
How do I install my new e-Book?
You can install your eBook file on any compatible device. The following guides have been provided for your assistance:
Android with a Kindle App:
First you will need a file manager for your phone or other device. If you do not have one you can get it from the Google App Store. We recommend My Files. This is simple to use and comes ready installed on most Samsung phones. You must also have downloaded and installed the Kindle app on your phone.

Open My Files or other file manager, select All Files and look for your download folder. Tap to open it and then look for the MOBI file you wish to add. Select it, choose move, and then find your Kindle folder. Move it there.

Open your Kindle app. You should now see your book in your library. If not, go to the Kindle app's menu and tap on sync. Then select the file to open and read.

For more detailed instructions, a Google search on "installing MOBI files on Android Kindle" will bring up a lot of useful additional information.

Android with Play Books app for ePub and PDF files:
Firstly make sure you have the latest Play Books app installed on your phone or other device, as recent updates allow you to read both ePub and PDF files.

  1. Open your downloads folder using My Files (Samsung devices) or other file manager.
  2. Locate your new ePub or PDF file and tap once.
  3. Select the Upload to Play Books option in the pop-up menu.
  4. Open Play Books and tap on your new title to begin reading.
Mac with an i-Books app:
You can download your ePub book to your Mac and read it with the iBooks app, which must already be downloaded and installed on your system. Click or tap on the title download link from your eBooks Library. Download times depend on your connection speed and file size. When the download is complete, go to your computer Downloads folder, click on the downloaded title, and it will launch in iBooks on your computer.

Adding directly to an iPad, iPhone, tablet or smart phone:
To download titles directly to your device, simply click or tap on the title download link from your eBooks Library. Download times depend on your connection speed and file size.
Adding to an iPad, iPhone, tablet or smart phone from your Mac computer:
The iBooks app must already be downloaded and installed on your system. Download any previously purchased ePub file to your computer by clicking on the title download link from your eBooks Library. Download times depend on your connection speed and file size. Once your download is complete, click on the file in your downloads folder, and it will launch in iBooks on your computer. When next you sync your iPhone or iPad to your computer, the title will be synced with your device.
Viewing PDF on iPad, iPhone or iPod with iBook:
  1. Open up iTunes. Select File > Add to Library.
  2. Find the PDF file that you would like to add to iBooks.
  3. Select "Books" from your iTunes Library.

Adding to your Kindle:
First download the MOBI format e-Book to your computer from your eBooks Library, as described above. Then transfer the file to your Kindle reader by following these steps:

  1. Remove the electrical plug from the end of your Kindle charging cord, to reveal a USB connector that can then be plugged into any USB port on or connected to your computer.
  2. Plug the other end of this charging cord into the charging port on your Kindle. Your Kindle can be on or off for this part of the process. The Kindle's charging port doubles as the data transfer port; when your Kindle is plugged into the computer you will be able to both recharge its battery from the computer's power supply, and transfer files.
  3. Wait until your Kindle appears in your computer's file system as a removable mass-storage device, just like a portable data device or a DVD would.
  4. Double-click on the Kindle's icon to open a window displaying its various folders. Locate the MOBI folder.
  5. Locate the files you want to transfer on your computer's hard drive, then drag and drop them into this Kindle folder.
  6. Use your computer's undock, eject or unmount function to "eject" your Kindle once the transfer is complete.
  7. Disconnect your Kindle from the USB cable. It will automatically return to its former reading mode.
Syncing Kindle Library across devices:
First enable Whispersync for Books, so you can switch between Kindle devices and reading apps. With this program you can pick up reading where you left off and view the bookmarks, highlights, and notes that were created on another device. This will only work if your Kindle devices and reading apps are registered to the same Amazon account.

Whispersync is normally enabled on Kindle devices by default. If you have to enable it, go to Manage Your Content and Devices. Then select the Settings tab. Under Device Synchronization (Whispersync Settings), make sure that Whispersync Device Synchronization is ON.
