Unclutterer housekeeping

A couple things we want to bring to your attention:

First: When Unclutter Your Life in One Week was initially released as a hardcover, it was also released as a Kindle version through Amazon (and a number of other e-book reader formats, too). Much to my frustration, the Kindle version had numerous layout issues that made some of the pages significantly difficult to read.

I am pleased to announce that these layout errors have finally been corrected by my publisher, and a new Kindle version is available for download. If you have already purchased the Kindle version you will NOT have to repurchase it to get the update. If you were waiting to purchase the digital book until the Kindle version was fixed, now is a great time to do it.

You should automatically receive an update message from Amazon, and all you’ll need to do is select “Yes” to indicate you would like to download the changes. If you do not receive this message, I believe you can do it manually by going to “Kindle” and then “Manage Your Kindle.” Here, you can select “Your Orders” and then on the drop down menu next to the title choose “Deliver to …” and select your device.

Second: I have donated a signed copy of my book to the Red Cross fundraiser through Writers for the Red Cross. My book is part of a basket of books from writers represented by the Sanford J. Greenburger Associates literary agency. All of the books in the basket, except for Dan Brown’s, are signed by the author. If you’re interested in a signed copy of my book and helping out the Red Cross, you can make a bid in the comments on the Writers for the Red Cross website.

Additionally, if you’re a writer putting together a book proposal, my agent has donated a critique of a nonfiction book proposal or novel to the same fundraiser. You can make a bid in the comments on her auction page. Both auctions conclude this Sunday, March 27.

Thank you to anyone who makes a bid!

    Any chance of getting the Kindle version in the UK?

    I wish the Kindle version was available to purchase from Australia!

    @Roger — You can’t get it in the UK? That’s weird. I have a contract covering UK distribution. I’ll ask my publisher …

    @Georgina — Huh. Same thing as the UK, I have a contract covering Australian distribution. I’ll ask my publisher …

    Other International Folks — France, Greece, Korea, Russia, and Poland should all have non-English versions of the book already or in the coming months. I’ve seen the French printing, so I know it’s available there for certain.

    Bummer: I saw the headline on RSS and thought you were going to talk about how I can own fewer than 20 cleaning solutions. :)

    @Juyon — I don’t own a Nook, so I’m not 100 percent certain, but my understanding is that it was fixed for all ebook versions. I’ll ask my publisher and get back to you …

    Does ths issue apply to copies downloaded on Kindle for the iPad 1? I had not noticed any formatting issues and have not received notification of a revised version. Also, the options available to the reader on the iPad appear to be different from the instructions you provide for accessing the revisions.

    I too would love to be able to purchase the kindle version from Australia. I will be very interested to hear what you find out from your publisher.

    @Roger and @Georgina — It turns out I was mistaken. My contract with Simon only includes the US, Canada, and the Philippines. I have other publishing contracts in other nations, but so far none in the UK or Australia. So, you can’t get it in the UK or Australia (at least right now). Sorry!
