How to download our ebooks on (almost) any device:

We know that these electronic things don’t always “just work,” so we’ve compiled some simple directions for getting our books onto your Kindle, Nook, iPad, iPhone, or Android device. We're happy to help you troubleshoot if you still run into problems (email books@felonyandmayhem.com), but please start here.

To Read on Kindle

  1. Use your computer’s web browser to shop at felonyandmayhem.com, and when you add ebooks to your cart, choose the Ebook Kindle option.
  2. Once you have paid and submitted your order, you’ll be sent to a page with a download button. We will also send you two emails: one confirming your order, the other with a link to download the file. You can use the button on the website or the link in the email; either will work.
  3. Make sure you know where your downloaded files go! (If you don’t know where they go, you can search your computer—click the magnifying-glass icon—for files that end in “.mobi”; odds are that your new book is the most recently added file.)
  4. Plug your Kindle into your computer. (...Can you find your Kindle USB cable? Took us ten minutes.)
  5. Your Kindle icon should appear on your computer—just like an external drive would. Double-click to open it, and look for the “Documents” folder.
  6. Drag the .mobi file to the Kindle “Documents” folder. 
  7. Disconnect your Kindle from your computer.
  8. The book will magically appear in the library on your Kindle.

To Read on Nook

  1. Use your computer’s web browser to shop at felonyandmayhem.com, and when you add ebooks to your cart, choose the Ebook Epub option.
  2. Once you have paid and submitted your order, you’ll be sent to a page with a download button. We will also send you two emails: one confirming your order, the other with a link to download the file. You can use the button on the website or the link in the email; either will work.
  3. Make sure you know where your downloaded files go! (If you don’t know where they go, you can search your computer—click the magnifying-glass icon—for files that end in “.epub”; odds are that your new book is the most recently added file.)
  4. Connect your Nook to your computer with the charging cable.
  5. Your Nook icon should appear on your computer—just like an external drive would. Double-click to open it, and look for the “Documents” folder.
  6. Drag the .epub file over to the Nook’s “Documents” folder. 
  7. Disconnect your Nook and enjoy!

To Read on iPhone or iPad—Any iOS Mobile Device

  1. Use the browser on your device to visit felonyandmayhem.com, and when putting books in the cart, please choose the Ebook Epub option.
  2. Once you have paid and submitted your order, you’ll be sent to a page with a download button. We will also send you two emails: one confirming your order, the other with a link to download the file. You can use the button on the website or the link in the email; either will work.
  3. When you click to download, you will see the file status at the bottom of the screen. (15%... 86%...)
  4. When the file is finished downloading, you will see an “Open in…” prompt, with a pop-up list of options.
  5. Scroll to choose the Apple Books app that is already on your device. (This used to be called iBooks, and if you have an older device or older software, you may see that name instead. The icon is orange and looks like an open book.)
  6. Once you choose Books, the file will open automatically and you can start reading. It will also add itself to the library in your Books app for future use (and if you sync with your other Apple devices, it will show up on them, too).

To Read on Your Mac

  4. Find the file and double click.
  5. The book will automatically open in the Apple Books or iBooks app, depending upon how old your software is. (When the app opens it may ask for your AppleID password.)
  6. If your iPad or iPhone syncs to your Mac through iCloud, your new book will also be available in the Books app there (though it may take a little while to sync).

To Read on an Android Mobile Device—Any non-Apple Smartphone or Tablet

  1. Make sure you have the Kindle app for Android on your mobile device. (If not, install/download it directly from your app store, Google Play store, or from Amazon.com. The icon looks like a young person reading on a starlit night.)
