Kindle favor?

If you have bought a copy of The Starving Years through Amazon during March, would you mind looking in Manage My Kindle to see if there is an updated version available for download?

I understand that if updates are minor, Amazon will not automatically offer a re-download. I made several corrections that I found as I was proofing my paperback, but given the length of the novel, the tweaks may still be considered too "minor" for a fresh download.

ETA: if you would like a fresh version of The Starving Years, you need to ask Amazon customer service to download the updated file. You will know it's a new file because it says "Kindle Edition 1.1" on the copyright page.

Many publishers tweak all the time and Amazon does not automatically offer fresh downloads because readers would be awash in notices of downloads they didn't want or need.

If you bought the ebook from me, let me know and I'll re-activate your JCP Books download link.

The updates are some errors I found as I was proofing the paperback. If you think you're going to re-read the ebook, you might as well grab the best version!

I just looked at my Manage Kindle page and it is not offering an updated version. Hope this helps.

I bought mine March 6. There's no option to update for me in Manage My Kindle on Amazon.

Thanks, Aniko! I'll have instructions on how to get the updated version in my newsletter.

I make a point to buy directly from your site, so I can't be of any help to you, unfortunately. Hope you figure out how to get it updated. xoxo

It is updated, but there is no way to "push" amazon to offer the update. I'll need to post instructions for the readers to get the update if they wish. Updates wipe out hilights and bookmarks so some readers opt to keep the old file.
