No limits. No rules. Just you, me, and the books we both love. Welcome to Shelly’s Indie Bookstore.

I’m excited to welcome you to the Grand Opening of my new indie bookstore! Readers from across the country and around the world can now buy Kindle editions of all my books right here. If you're a first-time customer, visit the About page to get shopping tips and a coupon code, then view Categories to start browsing.

Why buy direct from the author instead of from Amazon? Because when you shop here, you’ll enjoy some great benefits you can’t get anywhere else:

♦ Early releases. Get my new books before they’re available at Amazon.

♦ Coupon codes to save you money. Get my books for less when you get them here.

♦ Exclusive books. 5-star reads not sold at Amazon.

♦ No “geo-restrictions.” My store is open to everyone, wherever you live in the world.

We accept PayPal and all major credit cards, and you can have your books delivered directly to your Kindle. It’s just as fast and easy as buying a book at Amazon–but you’ll be supporting an indie author instead of a big corporation.

Every time you buy a book at Shelly’s Indie Bookstore, a full 97% of your purchase price goes directly to support the author. When you buy ebooks at Amazon, up to two-thirds of your purchase price goes to Amazon. Thanks to programs like Kindle Unlimited and Prime Reading, indie authors at Amazon have gone from earning several dollars per sale to earning a fraction of a penny per “page read.” Amazon holds all the power. Their store, their rules.

So this feels like the perfect time to open my own store, a place where I don’t have to follow anyone’s rules but my own. Hey, Jeff Bezos is now one of the world's wealthiest billionaires. He’ll get along just fine without us.

I hope you’ll join me in this new adventure and I hope Shelly’s Indie Bookstore will become your favorite place to buy Kindle editions of my books. When you #ShopSmall, you can make a big difference.

It's easy to use Send-to-Kindle delivery, even if this is your first time. With just a few clicks, you'll be able to have every book you buy here at Shelly's Indie Bookstore delivered directly to your Kindle.

Just follow these steps:

1. Go to Amazon, click on Your Account and scroll down to Digital Content. Under the words Digital Management, click the link at the top: Manage Your Content and Devices.

2. Click on the Settings tab.

3. Scroll down to your Personal Document Settings, all the way to your Approved Personal Document Email List. Add this email address to your approved senders list:

4. Now scroll up a little bit until you see your Send-to-Kindle Email Settings. Every Kindle device and app you own has a different email address. Choose which device you want your book(s) delivered to. Then just copy-and-paste that email address into the delivery form at checkout. As soon as you finish checking out, your book(s) will appear on your Kindle within seconds

Important tips:

Make sure your device is turned on and fully charged. If your battery is dead, Send-to-Kindle delivery won't work. Charge your device, re-send the book (you can use the link in your confirmation email) and the book should appear on your Kindle instantly.

If you own more than one Kindle device/app, remember that you have multiple different Send-to-Kindle email addresses. Make sure the address you enter on the delivery form at checkout matches the device you want to read the book(s) on.
