WELCOME TO MY "HOW TO..." PAGE:


HOW TO GET WRITING ADVICE FROM ME: 

1. I do live videos on writing, & these are archived for Patreon members at the $9 or up level.

2. I do some editing.

​3. I have a Patreon tier for a phone call with me to ask writing or publishing industry questions.



HOW TO GET ME TO READ YOUR BOOK OR SEND THINGS TO ME:


Send it to Melissa Marr, PO Box 1523, MESA AZ, 85211  I make ZERO promises, but I keep books beside me pretty nonstop. If I read & love it, I'll tweet, etc. If I DO NOT TWEET, it likely means I'm just too damn busy to read right now. 


Thank you for buying directly from me! All of the ebooks that I have for sale are available as both .epub and .mobi files. MOST of my print editions include ebook editions.


HOW TO READ YOUR EBOOK YOU BOUGHT FROM THIS SITE:

You’ll want to download the .epub file of the ebook. They do not support .mobi files.



Uploading your ebook to your device


There are too many different types of ereaders for us to provide instructions for each. However, the general principle behind loading your new ebook onto your ereading device is the same across all ereader devices and platforms:

  • Download the ebook file in the correct file format for your ereader or app onto your computer (please see above for which file you need)
  • Connect your ereader to your computer via a USB cord (you should have received one when you bought your ereader)
  • Open the ereader file or drive on your computer
  • Copy and paste the ebook file saved on your computer to the correct storage file in your ereader to begin ebook transfer
  • After the ebook has finished transferring, safely eject your ereader device from your computer and enjoy your new book


The specific steps involved for your ereader will depend on which one you have, along with the version or model, and the generation number.

If you have any questions about how to load an ebook to your specific device, please check your user manual or the manufacturer’s website for full instructions.

ANOTHER OPTION WITH KINDLE (or "how I do it"):


​In your Amazon account, there is an email address to send documents to your kindle.  I simply email each file to my Kindle. I do this with my own books, academic articles, etc.


ANOTHER OPTION WITH iPad (or "how I do it"):

I open the downloaded file via my email or Cloud storage.


NOTE: 

Almost every book of mine is available at Amazon, Apple, Kobo, B&N. The distinction is that they get a percentage of sales--which is fine if the hassle is too irritating. I get it! However, I also provide ebook downloads for many of my print books (which they ought to do too & it makes me rage that they don't, tbh). So I thought I'd share instructions just in case.
