First off, thanks so much for buying, reading and listening to my work. For the latest version of this FAQ, click here.

The reason I’ve chosen Gumroad to distribute at this time is that you’ll have immediate access to ebooks and audio (and the occasional video) online, in an app, and to download.

You can use the Gumroad to read and listen on your phones and tablets. Click here for iOS • Click here for Android

You can also read on your Kindle, digital  readers and computer.
You can download every ebook and audio file to your computer, watch them on any compatible device, and save them forever! The easiest and best way to do this is through either your purchase email or buy creating and logging into a Gumroad account ON YOUR COMPUTER. This makes sense, right?

Got an old Kindle? the .mobi files will work. An old iPod? the MP3s will too!

All my ebooks and audio are 100% backward compatible for all existing and future electronic.
