What's a Presale?

PSST! Got any EPUBs?

Presales are a way to get my books early, before they’re sold to the general public. It’s also the best way to buy my ebooks in a DRM-Free EPUB format that you can enjoy on all your personal devices, including iPad, Kobo, and Nook.

This sounds great. But What do I do with an EPUB once I have it?

You can sideload an EPUB onto your Kobo Reader, Nook, Kindle, iPad, or other devices. You can even read them on your computer. Need help? Smashwords offers tips for getting your EPUB onto your device of choice .

How do I download books early?

Presale links go out to my newsletter. Sign up here if you’re interested in discounts, presales, and other reader perks.

What if I don’t want to mess with sideloading an EPUB file?

No worries! You can order your ebooks from an online retailer like you normally do. For Kindle Unlimited titles , that means ordering from Amazon. My non-KU titles are available almost everywhere.

Is there anything else I should know?

Presales are an experiment. If enough people take advantage of it, we’ll keep on doing it! Also, presales go by fast. So don’t dawdle on clicking the link if you’re interested in getting an EPUB.

Cheers!
