Did you know that an eBook can be sent directly to the Kindle via e-mail? I know, right???? OMG what a convenience! *Arial grumbles at B&N for not getting with the program*
If you’re an author and have a few beta readers who help you test out your novel before it gets published OR if you’re a blogger and would love to receive ARCs and beta books from authors for reviews, this is a great option! It takes just a little bit of time to set up, but once you’ve done it, not only is it a breeze to do again, you only have to do it once per author/sender.
The instructions below are addressed to the person who owns the Kindle, so…
- Authors – You can send your readers here for these instructions OR copy and paste them into an e-mail to send to your beta readers/bloggers who will be reviewing your book. And please Click to Tweet this page with your author friends to spread the word!
- Book Reviewers/Beta Readers – Just follow the instructions and refer authors to this page or Click to Tweet and spread the word!
