All of our eBooks are part of the Overdrive library lending system.

If your library is part of the Overdrive network, they can get our books and you can check them out. If you do not find them in your library catalog, please let the librarian know you wish to read them and they can order them for you.

We have chosen to distribute our books without DRM protection in order to allow you, the purchaser, the maximum flexibility in reading your books on any device you own.

Some people will abuse that, and upload our books to pirate websites. We know this, and we count on you to help us fight this.

First and foremost, please don't download our books for free from pirate websites. We don't charge very much, and believe that you are getting tremendous value for the money. Thousands of hours went into the writing, editing and publishing of each and every book, and we think we deserve to get paid, and to be able pay the editors, cover artists, marketing organizations and ultimately to feed our families from the sale of our books.

Second, report the stolen title to the website owner - there will be a link somewhere on the site to do this - and then send an email to  and tell us where you found it so we can follow through and get it removed.

Some pirates will tell you that having books for free on these websites is good advertising and should be encouraged.  If we wished to give away all of our hard work for free, we would do that here, and not on a pirate website where someone else is earning money from banner ads or download subscription services and using our property to do so.

Please don't steal eBooks.  Thank you.

DRM stands for Digital Rights Management, and is a way for book publishers to lock books so they cannot be distributed or read on other devices.

We have decided to release all of our books without DRM which allows you, the purchaser, the option of installing your eBook on any computer or reading device you own, and to make copies for backup purposes.

Please do not give away our eBooks to your friends.

We trust you, and hope that you honor that trust by showing us respect in this manner.  We don't get paid if people don't buy our books, and we hope you support and understand that we don't condone piracy in any manner.

I am please to report that we are in distributed worldwide through Amazon, Kobo, Tolino and more, so you should be able to find our books in your favorite online bookstore.

If you cannot locate our books, please drop an email to our support contact and let us know.

We will do everything we can to get our books to you!
