About eBooks

An eBook – short for electronic book – is a digital publication that can be read on a range of devices, from tablets, phones, dedicated eBook readers, and personal computers. Just like a printed book, it can contain text and pictures, but can also include audio, video, and interactive elements. Some eBooks are formatted so that text and pictures 'flow' to fill your e-reader's screen, others are formatted as a 'fixed' layout, much like a page in a printed book.

How do I read eBooks?

To read an eBook, you will need a mobile phone, tablet, dedicated e-reader, or a desktop or laptop PC.

A range of software can be used to read eBooks, with each platform or device having multiple choices. E-reading software can be downloaded for Android and iOS systems, and also Windows, Mac, and Linux systems.

Some eBook vendors give you the option of reading your eBooks in a web browser, rather than a dedicated app, meaning anyone with access to a computer is able to buy and enjoy eBooks..

Can I share my eBook with someone else?

No. All our eBooks use Digital Rights Management (DRM), which locks an eBook to a device or a user's account, preventing unauthorised copying or distribution. eBooks you purchase from us can only be read by you, and are secured on your devices, or in your account.

Which books are available in eBook format?

We have a rolling programme of creating eBooks, starting with our back-catalogue, and working up to our most recent titles. No all our printed volumes have been converted yet (note that some limited and special edition books will not be converted into digital formats), but there are a number of ways to find the products that we have converted into eBooks in our store.

What formats are your eBooks available in?

Our eBooks are available in a range of formats, from all major vendors and for almost all eBook readers and devices.

Because the same title may be available in more than one format, precise details can be found at each eBook vendor's site, so you can see what is available for your particular device or PC.

How do I purchase an eBook?

To buy an eBook, simply click one of the eBook links on the product page to purchase from your preferred vendor. Due to the complexities of DRM, our eBooks are sold via the vendors Google, Amazon, Apple, and Glassboxx. This method enables us to concentrate on creating quality eBooks, and our vendors to handle security and download technology. We may make available free, non-DRM products for download, for specific titles, events, or features, from time to time.

We are also looking into offering books as a direct download from Veloce.co.uk; sign up to On the Grid to stay up-to-date with all our print and digital book news, and get advance notice.
