Purchasing texts directly from our online shop means you can access new updates from the My Account section.  So, if we update a title you’ve already purchased from us, you can click on its link in the My Account section and download the new version.  We are pleased to announce our new Update Notify service, where we automatically send an email to let you know an eBook you previously purchased from us has been updated.  A log of our most recent updates is provided below.

Please note: the Update service is a free service we offer our customers.  We cannot guarantee a ‘lifetime’ service, but we strive to make the service available as long as possible.  Customers are advised to always keep a copy of their files, as this service is not a ‘Cloud’ storage service.

A quick note on Updates… when you update an eBook the new version will not have any notes or highlights you’ve made on your old file – this is really the only drawback to an update.  Therefore, it is advisable to keep a backup of the old eBook that has any notes you want to keep, using a unique name (e.g. ‘Complete Works of Charles Dickens ver12‘) Then, if you need to refer back to your notes at any time you can, whilst also enjoying the added benefits of the latest edition.

“Which Version Do I Have?”

Please note: to check which version you have of an eBook, look for the version number at the bottom of the front table of contents, near the author’s signature.

Customers Who Have Purchased Titles From the Amazon Store…

If you have purchased an eBook directly from Amazon and there is now an updated version available, you can update your book for free. We always advise Amazon of new updates and we always upload the versions immediately to the Amazon store.  It is entirely at their discretion to notify customers of new updates. Customers can contact Amazon’s Customer Support department at the below numbers to get the updated versions without purchasing a title again. Alternatively, customers can request a refund from Amazon, delete the title from their Kindle and repurchase it again.

* U.S. and Canada: 1-866-216-1072
* International: 1-206-266-2992

Please note: simply re-downloading the eBook from your Amazon account will only give you the version you originally bought.  Unfortunately, you will have to make the phone call and request a refund for the eBook you bought, so you can purchase it again, receiving the latest file version.
