I've just published through Smashwords and gone through the Premium Catalogue process. My dashboard tells me the book has shipped to Apple already and should be available on there within a week or so.

My question. I have links on my blog and website to all the places this book (and future ones) can be purchased. This is straight forward with everyone else as they are all regular bookstores. Apple only seems to be accessible through iTunes, iPhone, iPad etc. The nearest I have is an iRon, and that won't connect to the internet.

How can I get a link to post on a website that says: "Click here to go to Apple to buy all my lovely books"?

Go to Google. Search on the title of your book, plus site:itunes.apple.com

That should get you the link (after the book comes up at the store, which may be significantly longer than one week).

Thanks James, that link of yours was exactly what I was looking for:)

I just searched for one of your books and then clicked on 'more from this author'. That is exactly what I wanted. Only my books, not yours:D


And you're right, mine's not there yet.
