New cover for Strong as Death – still waiting for Amazon to update on their sites (it can, apparently, take quite some time …)

I’ve had a couple of messages from people recently who want to update their version of my novel, ‘Strong as Death’, to the second edition, which is now available. This is the advice I received from Amazon:

To download the latest version of your books, verify that your device is fully charged and that you’ve turned on wireless, and then sync your device:

FOR KINDLE FOR ANDROID:
From Home, tap the Sync icon.

FOR KINDLE FOR PC:
From Home, click the Sync icon.

The previous version of your book will be automatically replaced by the updated version.

If you’d like to receive updates to your Kindle books automatically, you can turn on automatic updates for your books from the Manage Your Content and Devices page:

1.    Go to the Manage Your Content and Devices (www.amazon.co.uk/mycd) page. (NB I am assuming Amazon.com will have an equivalent page …)
2.    Select the “Settings” tab from the left navigation bar.
3.    Under the section titled, “Automatic Book Updates,” select On.

Hope that helps those of you who’d like to update. If you haven’t downloaded it yet, the second edition is available from Amazon

  1. I just assumed it would somehow happen automatically, but apparently not. I managed to update mine (though I use the Kindle app) without any hitches … If there are difficulties, Amazon are good at getting back to you if you contact them, I have found.
