I was not aware of this.
Has anyone been able to download it? Kindly keep me posted and I will check with my publisher in the meantime. Thank for the info dreams.

Ok, talked to few people who were able to download from amazon, whew! Also, my publisher will have it available shortly in epub format as well.

So Happy! I Just got a great review!

Hey all,

I had to share this. I just recieved an awesome review!

The Voice delivered much more than I expected. I was intrigued by the vivid descriptions of the characters and their interesting journey. The suspense was gripping. The twists and turns were nail biting and I was really not expecting the ending. Great bargain for a really good story! I have recommended reading this to others and will surely read it again. Can't wait to read more from William L.K.


Wow! I'm so happy!

You'll know you bought a Mobipocket book when the file extension is ".prc"
Interesting. The Kindle reads .prc files as well as .mobi files. I wonder if they have their own special flavor of DRM? The Kindle can't read non-Amazon DRM'ed mobi files.

I do not have a Kindle, so I was very confused by this also. Especially, since Mobipocket is owned by Amazon.

I am still so confused! Why is it that readers have successfully downloaded .mobi files on their Kindles and other devices? I don't get it.

A quick rundown:

Anything that can be read electronically (epub, mobi, lrf, rtf, even txt) is an ebook. Take a look at any random book on Project Gutenberg as an example.

The Amazon Kindle is one ebook reader out of many. Check the forums below and you'll see one for each of the major brands of ebook readers.

The Kindle uses some version of .mobi (not being a Kindle user myself, I can't tell you exactly which one).

Due to Amazon's DRM, only the Kindle and various Kindle-on-whatever apps can read that flavor of .mobi. This leaves the rest of us (about 3/4 of the ebook-reading public) out in the cold.

Therefore, a lot of people want either a non-Kindle-specific ebook format, or a DRM-free ebook format they can convert, or preferably both. DRM-free epub is generally considered the best in that case, because it can be turned into pretty much anything else.

I hope that helps some.

Thank you, that does help.
I guess I just don't understand how Amazon manages to still be so popular.

Just wanted to say Thanks for all the hits! You have all been great with feedback and if it wasn't for this forum I would never have been able to finally get the book into epub format...So THANK YOU!!!!!!

On the whole, I would have to say, you are all pretty cool!

I'm very glad I joined!

Thank you sir, I appreciate the work you are doing for indie authors.
Keep up the good work!
