Now that I am publishing my books on Smashwords as well as the Kindle store, I thought it would be useful to offer you some advice on how to read them when you do not own a Kindle, Sony Reader, iPhone, iPad, iAnything…
Smashwords makes my work available in a number of formats, and for each a free reader is available for the most common formats. Therefore, if you want to purchase or download a sample of any of my works, you can also download and install a reader to make it available.
My personal favorites are Kindle for PC or Mac because this seems closest to a real reading experience, closely followed by the ePub reader and, fairly obviously, Adobe PDF reader. Take your choice. If you want to read some of my work (and at some point there is going to be some free versions, plus discount coupons as well, so check back regularly as these will have a limited lifetime) get yourself one of these readers, sit back, and enjoy in whatever way suits you.
The Adobe degital editions ePub reader is availabe for PC and Mac. Click on this link to view or download it free.
The Amazon Kindle for PC application can be downloaded from here.
The Amazon Kindle for Mac can be downloaded from here.
Palm PDF files
The granddaddy of them all, Adobe’s PDF reader can always be used. It’s more than likely you already have this, but if not you can download it here.
I have personally downloaded and installed the software from each of these sites and installed it on my PC (Sony Vaio running Windows 7 Professional). Each download has passed my virus checker (Kaspersky), but please note that you download these readers at your own risk.
