Tips for Downloading Creating Your Masterpiece

Thank you so much for purchasing Creating Your Masterpiece.  Less than 10% of our readers have had issues downloading the book, but we want to help in any way we can if you are having trouble.  You may not have to complete all these steps, so you can always try simply downloading first.  If not, hopefully these steps will help you download the interactive eBook.  Since we’re just a duo of  folks, try these troubleshooting tips first, and contact us if these tips don’t help in downloading your book.  We’re happy to help.
Having trouble downloading/saving your eBook?

Mac Users: Before clicking on the download link, you will first need to download both DNL Reader and Wine 

There should be very little trouble for a Mac user.  Make sure you download DNL Reader and Wine from my eBook page at:

Then download your copy of the book from the email sent to you from Perfectly Imperfect via

We’ve had only one Mac user have an issue, and after you download the software and eBook, there should be no reason you can’t open/save the eBook.  You’ll find it in your downloads until you choose to save it elsewhere.
If for any reason you’re having issues, we suggest un-installing the software and eBook and starting fresh.
At that point, you should be good to go.  Also, if DNL prompts you to upgrade your software, click “don’t upgrade.”  We’ve found that if that is the issue, after clicking don’t upgrade, your book will appear momentarily.  We are also working on making a PDF available to everyone…and should be a great alternative if downloading the interactive version is troublesome.
If you’re having trouble after you’ve followed all these steps, feel free to email us at

PC Users: Windows 7, Vista, XP – Before clicking the download link in the confirmation email, you must first download  DNL Reader, and then be sure to temporarily turn down the security setting in the internet options.  If you need help doing this, below are the step-by-step instructions and screenshots.
