Reading any file on Stanza
Stanza book reader for the iPhone/iPod Touch can handle almost any kind of text file, but you can only access established stores such as Fictionwise directly from the iPhone itself.
To read my fiction you need to follow these steps:
Make sure both your laptop/netbook/desktop computer and your iPhone/Touch are connected to the same wifi network or home network.*
Download Stanza for the iPhone through the iTunes Store and install it on your iPhone.
Download the ePub format of my novel to your laptop.
Download Desktop Stanza from Lexcyle.com and install that on your laptop.
In Stanza Desktop, go to "File" and "Open File..." and open my novel.
Go to "Tools" and select "Enable Sharing".
On the home screen of Stanza iPhone, select "Shared Books".
You'll see something like "Books on My-Laptop". Select that.
This next screen will show all the files you have open in Desktop Stanza. Select my novel and hit download.
You are now ready to read!
* If there is no wifi network available, you can easily create your own from your laptop. For example, on my Macbook I can click the wifi icon on the menu bar and select "Create Network..." I then connect to the new network with my iPod Touch.
If you have any question, just email me or look up the FAQ on Lexcyle.com.
