How to Redownload an Ebook

Why would you want to redownload an ebook you already have?

Well, sometimes authors fix typos, published a pretty new cover, add information about new books in the series, or make the story BETTER.

This past week I did the latter. I made tweaks to Mandy and Frankie’s story, Whiskey and Gumdrops. Why? I noticed that readers were having an issue with one of the scenes. So I tweaked it to give you a better reading experience.

And who doesn’t want a better read?

So how to you redownload an ebook to get the better version if you have already downloaded Whiskey and Gumdrops, or the Blueberry Springs Series Starter Box set (contains Whiskey and Gumdrops), or the Complete Blueberry Springs Collection?

Here’s how:
