About Our Ebooks

We use the Glassboxx service from Firsty Group for delivery of our eBooks. This makes it very simple and quick for you to get the books you’ve purchased, in apps on your iOS and Android phones and tablets, and Windows and macOS computers. It also means our books are protected from being copied, pirated and tampered with, so we keep our authors happy as well.

How to read your eBook

Glassboxx is available on iOS and Android phones and tablets, and Windows and macOS computers. Just click the relevant link below to install the app on your device or computer, and then log in with the email address used for your purchase. The eBooks or audiobooks you’ve just bought will be displayed within the MY BOOKS screen, from there you can access the built-in ereader and audio player to read or listen to your books.

Once you have the app, there’s no need to download it again – whenever you buy more books, just head straight there and your new purchase(s) will already be there. If you have any questions about using the app, please go here or contact Glassboxx on [email protected]
