Can Aliens & Alphas Kindle books be shared on multiple devices?

Hi! Frauke, your friendly Customer Support girl at Aliens & Alphas, here. 🙂

Popular support questions we receive at A&A are the following:

  • Can Aliens & Alphas Kindle books be shared on multiple devices?
  • Can I have an Aliens & Alphas Kindle book on more than one device?
  • Where can I find my Aliens & Alphas Kindle book? It’s not in the library?
  • Why is my downloaded Aliens & Alphas book not syncing to my other devices?

So I thought it may be good to answer them here publicly, with screenshots and step-by-step instructions attached. I hope this post will help you.

You can download a book to more than one Kindle or Kindle app. As long as you are downloading the book on the same IP address, BookFunnel won’t stop you.

If you encounter a “download limit reached” message, it is because your private download link has reached its limit. That link is able to download to up to 2 different IP addresses before it becomes “redeemed”.

But maybe you are like me. I use three devices (my Kindle, my iPad and my Mac) to read books. Sometimes even my iPhone, too. Fortunately, books purchased from Amazon Kindle, sync automatically to all my devices. But what about Kindle books purchased at A&A?

First, if  you want to download your books to multiple devices over multiple IP addresses and you get the “redeemed” message, contact me at shop @ aliensandalphas.com (w/o spaces) or help @ bookfunnel.com (w/o spaces) so they can reset your link.

However, there are other ways to solve this problem. In short all you have to do is to add your books to the Kindle library so they can be delivered automatically to all your devices.

IMPORTANT: I’m not talking about the library on any of your devices here, but the “main” Kindle library you can view when you visit your Amazon account.

Here’s the long answer how you can send books to your “main” Kindle library so you can access it on all your Kindle readers and other devices that have the Kindle app installed.

Configure Delivery Settings at Amazon

Step 1: Log into your Amazon account. (Mine, although I’m German, is at Amazon.com).

Step 2: Signed in, choose “Your Content & Devices” from the drop-down menu for your account.

Amazon Account: Your Content and Devices

Step 3: On the “My Content & Devices” page choose the “Preferences” tab:

Amazon Account: Preferences

Step 4: Scroll down the page until you see “Personal Document Settings”.

Personal Document Settings

Step 5: Click the header “Personal Document Settings” to expand this section.

Here you have to check three things.

Step 5.1: Make sure “Personal Document Archiving” is ENABLED.

Personal Document Archiving

Step 5.2: Make sure your email address is correctly listed under the “Approved Personal Document E-mail List”. If it is not there, make sure to add it.

Approved Personal Document E-mail List

Step 5.3: Make sure all your Kindle reading devices are listed under “Send-to-Kindle E-Mail Settings”.

Send-to-Kindle E-Mail Settings

Step 5.4: You will see email addresses listed besides your devices. Write one down. It doesn’t really matter which one, you only need one of them.

Download Book from BookFunnel

If you download your book from BookFunnel, you’ll be asked “What do you like to read on?” and get the following selection to choose from:

What do you like to read on?

Step 6: Choose any of the choices listed except for Kobo or Nook readers. We need for Kindle a MOBI file, that’s Kindle’s format for ebooks. And Kobo as well as Nook use EPUB as ebook format.

Step 7: Depending on what you chose, you’ll see another selection next or simply a form to have the book emailed to you (see screenshots below).

Download Your Book

Which Kindle Do You Have?

IMPORTANT: Choose the option EMAIL MY BOOK and select MOBI (for Kindles) as format. To make it as simple as possible send the book to the email address you added on Amazon to the “Approved Personal Document E-mail List”.

Email Your Book

Email Book to Amazon

Step 8: An email from BookFunnel should show up in your inbox shortly. It has got the subject “We’ve attached your MOBI of “Your Book”. Attached to it is the MOBI file. Now simply forward this email to one of the Kindle devices listed under “Send-to-Kindle E-Mail Settings”. I asked you to write down one of the email addresses here earlier (Step 5.4).

We are taking here advantage of Amazon’s “Send to Kindle by E-mail” feature.

Instead of sending the book by email, you can, if you are on your computer, also download the mobi file to your files and then use Amazon’s FREE “Send to Kindle” software to add it to your Kindle library: Download for MAC | Download for PC.

Synch Book to all your Devices

Step 9: It can take a moment for the book your send to Kindle by email to appear in your Kindle library. To check if it’s there, sign in to your Amazon account, go again to “Your Content & Devices” page. There choose the “Content” tab:

Amazon Account: Content

IMPORTANT: Book send to Kindle by you (instead of purchased at Amazon) are not listed under “Books” but “Docs”. So make sure you are viewing the “Docs” list.

Docs

Your book should be listed there.

KIndle Docs

Step 10: Select your book and click the DELIVER button:

Deliver Button

Step 11: Select the devices you want the book to be added to and click the DELIVER button:

Deliver Book

Step 12: That’s it. The book should have been added to all your devices now. Just remember it will show up under DOCS.

Happy Reading!

Halloween Promo

Available October 20: Our Exclusive Halloween Box Set

Red and the WolfOn October 20, 2018 we will release an exclusive Halloween Box Set, only available here at Aliens & Alphas. There will be three books included in the box set. The first of them is Red and the Wolf (re-release), and you get to choose the other two!

Sara Jensen is the town witch in Buck Lake, Tennessee. More than anything she misses her older brother and his best friend Reeve, who are overseas in the Marine Corps. But when her brother is killed in action, Reeve comes back with a secret—an ancient crone laid a curse on him that turns him into a ravening wolf every full moon.

Sara has a secret of her own—she’s head over heels for Reeve and has been since they were kids. When he comes to her house on Halloween night asking for help, she inadvertently lays a fidelity spell on him while trying to keep him in his human form. Sara knows she must undertake the difficult and dangerous task of lifting his curse. But when the wolf within him is banished, the fidelity spell will be lifted too and his love for her will disappear.

Now Sara must choose between keeping the love of her life and lifting the curse that threatens his very existence.

1. Taming the Beast

Sold into a life of prostitution by her greedy uncle, innocent Gisella Trelain finds herself a prisoner in a dark and ominous dungeon. Chained to the wall is a muscular, naked man named Tristan who tells her he is under a curse. Every month he is doomed to lose his humanity and take on the characteristics of a ravening beast—a beast with needs too savage to be satisfied by any ordinary woman. In order to break the curse, Gisella must submit completely to the beast and offer herself freely to slake his fierce sexual desires. But the stakes are high in this fairytale come true and if Gisella isn’t able to open herself completely to Tristan’s lusts, she may lose her life as she attempts to tame the beast.

2. Gypsy Moon

Alissa O’Malley is having a rough twenty-fifth birthday. She get an eviction notice on her apartment, gets into a car wreck and loses her job, all on the same day. But as bad as her life is, it’s only going to get worse. At a mortifying birthday dinner with her politically incorrect Grandmother, she gets bitten by a hyperactive Pomeranian that’s been ‘infected’ by a run-in with a wolf. That’s when things really start to gets weird. Alissa’s normally straight and lifeless hair starts curling, her eyes change color and she develops a taste for raw meat. Strangest of all are the reoccurring dreams of a tall, dark man with a scarred face who is chained to a wall with silver manacles. He tells her that he is her heart-mate and he will be coming for her soon. Before she knows it, Alissa is involved in a life and death struggle involving werewolves, witches, generational curses, magical silver earrings, and a hot sexual biting ceremony that will bind her to the man of her dreams and his strange life forever. Can she handle the strain of becoming a completely different person? Or will her life change forever after she spends one night under the Gypsy Moon?

3. Kristen’s Addiction

Dr. Kristen Johansen is a respected pediatrician. With her sexy plus-sized figure and long blonde hair you’d think she’d have a man. But her demanding career has put her love life on hold, until she’s attacked late one night and becomes an addict—of vampire venom.

Now she has no choice but to go out after sundown, offering herself to anyone with fangs who wants a late-night snack. Which is how she runs into Joe, the last person she would have suspected of being a vampire. Blue-collar and hard-core, Joe works as a mechanic and hides his intellect behind his skill with a socket wrench. But what he really longs for is an extra-curvy woman with appetites to match his own.

After an explosive sexual encounter, Joe offers Kristen the chance at a cure. But as they work together to find the rogue vampire who attacked her, Kristen begins to wonder if her addiction is turning into love. And whether regaining her old life is worth losing the only man she has ever cared for.

4. The Covenant

Kaitlyn Richards is a witch with powers beyond the norm. Her unique abilities make her one of the few people in the state of Florida qualified to be an S.E., or Supernatural Enforcer. As part of her duties she uses her home as a magical holding cell for creatures too strong to be contained in normal human jails.

Holden Sumner is a three-hundred-year-old vampire on a mission—he’s been stalking a serial-killing demon for centuries and he needs Kaitlyn’s help to kill it. The problem is, she won’t give him the time of night. But Sumner is determined to get under her skin.

Though Kaitlyn is reluctant to get involved with a vampire, she agrees to help Sumner search for the killer. But in order to drive the demon back to hell and stop the slaughter of innocents, she will have to bind herself more tightly than she ever thought possible to a man she doesn’t want to love.

She and Sumner must form a blood covenant…or die trying.

5. Secret Thirst

Dr. Lauren Wright is a serious research scientist with blonde hair, smoky green eyes and a curvy plus-size figure. Too bad her closest relationship is with her laptop, where she stores all her most forbidden fantasies of erotic submission. Lauren has perfected the formula for NuBlood, an artificial blood substitute that is identical to donor blood.

Nicolas Kris works for a vampire organization that needs the formula for NuBlood in order to “come out” to the world at large and prove that vampires are more than the blood-sucking fiends found in horror movies. He swipes Lauren’s Mac, thinking that the formula is encrypted inside. What he finds instead is a code worth breaking—the key to Lauren’s heart.

When they meet, it’s hate at first sight. But a sinister group of vamps who don’t want to be outed attack Lauren, forcing her and Kris to take refuge at the most notorious bondage/Domination night club in Houston, where the price of admission is fantasy and desire. In order to survive, Lauren will have to act out her own erotic scenarios with Kris acting as her Master while he does his best to quench her Secret Thirst.
