Hopefully you still have the email from your initial purchase! If you don’t, you’ll have to contact me.
If you have your initial purchase details, you can re-enter the information below and re-download your purchases!
An account is required to process the payments, although no payment information is actually stored on this site. It’s handled by Stripe, my payment processor, but with the digital download system used, it creates a custom download link unique to every customer, however the link itself is only good for a period of 24 hours.
By having an account here you can log in tomorrow or years from now and re-download your purchase.
At any time you can request to have your account deleted, but in doing so you will no longer be able to re-download your purchase.
PDF files can be nice, because they are made for printing and preserve all layout, just as the creator intended. If you wanted to print the document on your printer, you are welcome to, but just be warned the book are several hundreds of pages long, and I believe in saving the trees.
The downfall to PDF files is they are built for printing and don’t scale very well on mobile devices such as phones and tablets. Also because they aren’t really an ereader format, they don’t remember where you are in your reading.
Use an eReader
I highly recommend downloading the epub files as those can be utilized by the ereading application of your choice.
The advantages to using an ereader application is the text scales to whatever you like, page numbers become irrelevant and it remembers where you are in your reading. Some ereaders also synchronize your reading locations, so you could start reading on your home computer, then go out and resume reading on your phone or tablet right where you left off.
The easiest way is to use a file synchronization service such as…
There are of course many other cloud synchronization services, these are just the ones I am the most familiar with.
Then, using your computer copy the file you download into the directory used by the application you have chosen.
Next, install the application on your phone or tablet and log in using the same credentials as your computer. The file should then synchronize between the devices.
Personally I live and breathe cloud storage services and use DropBox, OneDrive and Google Drive. With all the viruses these days and the fact they seem to be making computers cheaper and cheaper, I just do not trust anything I store on a computer, everything is synchronized to the cloud somewhere.
DropBox is the best synchronizing system to use with the Scrivener application I use to write my books with. It allows me to write using my computer, or if I have to be travelling I can write using my iPhone or iPad. I just use the free version, which has 2GB of storage and is only good for synchronizing up to 3 devices.
OneDrive I use because it comes with my copy of Microsoft Office 365 and gives me a ton of storage (1TB). So I set my Scrivener program up to send my backup files to OneDrive and it’s also where I store all my important files and backups.
Google Drive I use for any files that I share publicly with people. It’s free and gives you 15GB of storage for free.
