Up and at ‘em everyone! For charity!
If you’ve never purchased a book on Smashwords before, or even made an internet purchase, don’t worry it’s easy. We’ll walk you through the steps after the cut.
STEP ONE: Register for a Smashwords account here. Once you’ve filled out the form, click on the Sign Up! button below the form. You’ll be sent an activation email at the email address you registered with. Click on the link in the email, and you should be all set.
STEP TWO: Make sure you’re logged in, then head to the Ruin and Resolve page on Smashwords here. Click the “Add to Cart” button on the upper right (next to the green shopping cart button). This takes you to your shopping cart.
STEP THREE: In your cart page, you’ll see Ruin and Resolve listed, as well as the quantity (1 by default). You can buy more than one copy of the anthology if you want to send them out to your friends (miss anyone on that Christmas list?)–just change the number in the quantity box. Ignore the coupon code box and click the green Checkout button at the bottom.
STEP SIX: You’ll be taken to a page that says Checkout Complete with a link at the bottom back to the Ruin and Resolve page.
STEP SEVEN: The upper right portion of the page (where the Add to Cart button used to be) will now say “You have purchased this book”. Scroll down and click the download button next to the PDF edition.
You can open the PDF file with programs such as Adobe Reader or Foxit (free). Now, sit back and enjoy the anthology–and the fact that you’ve just helped a good cause. And hey, if you liked it, a review on Smashwords would be awesome. Thanks again!
