Thanks so much for buying from me direct! Here are some of the most Frequently Asked Questions.
If I buy an audiobook, how do I listen to it? Or get it to my favourite device?
Once you purchase an audiobook, you will get an email from firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to download the audiobook, and instructions for how to download and listen in their app, or on another device. If the email hasn’t arrived in 10 minutes after purchase, please look for it in your Spam folder.
You can also find your audiobooks in your Bookfunnel library at https://My.BookFunnel.com. Log into BookFunnel with the email you used to purchase/download your books.
If you need help with getting the ebook to your device, just email: email@example.com or check https://getbookfunnel.com/
If I buy a paperback, how long does it take to get to me?
It depends which country you're in, and which shipping option you choose at checkout. It won't be 'next day shipping' though!
Each book is printed and sent to you specifically from the independent printer I use here in the UK (although they are looking at options to print in the US, Australia and in other countries.)
You can view tracking information through the link in the email you get after purchase.
Why would I buy a paperback from you when I can get it on one of the big online stores for a cheaper price and free shipping?
Great question! There is no way I can compete with the big online stores, so basically, you are supporting me as an independent author, and also my independent printer (called BookVAULT), which is much appreciated!
BookVAULT is a sustainable printer. The books you order are produced on sustainably sourced paper. They also plant a tree for every order placed on BookVAULT through Ecologi partner.
The books are of excellent quality. Better than the print on demand books Amazon produces (in my opinion). I also plan on making special editions only available when buying direct, so keep your eyes peeled.
How does it help authors to buy direct?
If you buy direct, we get paid within hours or days, rather than months — which helps us create more books! Thank you! We can also email you to tell you about other books you might enjoy.
While authors love the big stores and you can find our books there too, it's becoming pretty crowded on those sales pages. Our direct stores allow us to have some independence and feature our products without having other products advertised against them.
Where can I buy the Ebooks?
At the moment, all of my Ebooks are only available on Amazon Kindle and Kindle Unlimited (the subscription service). There are a few free books in all the other stores, and I also plan on doing some exclusive Ebooks that will only be available direct on this webstore too.
You can also find all my ebooks on Amazon in Kindle Unlimited.
How can I contact you with any more questions?
You can use the "Contact Us" button in the bottom righthand corner of the screen to ask a question or you can email 'me [at] cjwarwood [dot] com'.
