I Want Your E-Book! How?

Book cover for Write It, Speak It: Writing a Speech They'll Applaud!When I published my new e-book on Tuesday, I did not anticipate the number of unforeseen questions and problems that would arise.

Hint to future self-published authors: Do not schedule oral surgery on the same day you publish a book. You don’t three hours to be out of pocket.

Lessons learned, I’m going to attempt to give away Write It, Speak It: Writing a Speech They’ll Applaud! as a free download again this weekend. I’m offering it over two days for a very good reason: I hope you will all attempt to download it on Saturday, when I’ll be out of pocket again. No, I’m not having more surgery. I am, however, surgically removing junk that has accumulated around the house and depositing it at the annual free Neighborhood Cleanup event in the morning. Then I’m quickly showering, throwing on a rare Saturday tie, and officiating at a division-level Toastmasters International Speech and Evaluation Contest.

Sunday I’ll be around to problem-solve. Hopefully there won’t be many problems to solve because I’m offering to you here the three most prevalent problems that presented on Tuesday and their satisfying solutions.

Issue: “I can download the picture, but the book doesn’t download with it.” Followed by: “I’d like my free download, but I don’t want to sign up for Kindle Unlimited.”

Solution: On Saturday and Sunday, the book will be available for free. No strings attached. But to obtain it, you do have to click on the “Buy Now” button. I know, it’s counterintuitive to have to “buy” something that is free. But by clicking that button, my book will land in your cart. Then, when you check out, your charge will be $0.00.

Issue: “I don’t have a Kindle.”

Solution: You don’t need a Kindle. Underneath the cover art is box that says: “Read on Any Device: Get free Kindle App.” Click on it. It has an app for you. I don’t have a Kindle either. But I read Kindle books on my Android phone and my Windows laptop. (They have Apple apps too.)

Issue: “I’m in Australia (India, Qatar) and it won’t let me download. I guess it’s only available in the United States.”

Solution: Here are the international links Amazon provided to me. If yours is not listed, log onto your Amazon account in your home nation and search for Write It, Speak It: Writing a Speech They’ll Applaud! Please let me know if it still doesn’t seem available. I’ll look into it.

UK, DE, FR, ES, IT, NL, JP, BR, CA, MX, AU, and IN.

(How many Californians do you think will click on CA and complain they can’t download it?)

Thanks in advance! Talk to you on Sunday!

P.S. If the book was helpful, please leave a review on the Amazon page. (U.S. link.)
