Before checkout: You can make unlimited changes prior to checkout and payment. You can edit anything contained in the eBook Information list on the eBook Details page. You can also re-upload eBook content files and we will use the latest upload as your final file.
After checkout, eBook content changes: You can still make spelling or minor punctuation changes but you will incur change fees. Any changes beyond spelling and punctuation will necessitate a new edition of your eBook, which will require a new eBook submission, submission fee, and ISBN number.
To request spelling or minor punctuation changes, please email the list of corrections to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will provide you with a quote.
Why do we charge for changes after checkout? What might seem like a minor change actually requires more time and effort than you might think. Each file must be retrieved within our system and our technicians make the manual changes to your eBook. The updated file must then be reconverted to ePub and MOBI for our various retail stores. And finally we must redeliver to every retail store in the BookBaby network. That’s a lot of work for a few missed commas, so please spend the time and effort to proofread!
After checkout, eBook metadata (pricing, description) changes: You can make changes to all the non-content areas of your eBook after checkout. This includes long and short descriptions, genre, author bio, keywords and pricing. The BookBaby Premium package allows one free change per 60 days.
You can edit/update your title metadata by following these steps:
1. Log into your account.
2. Select Manage my Books."
3. Select "View/Update Metadata."
4. Select "Edit" for the section that you would like to update.
5. Proceed through the prompts.
All other changes will be priced per the content changes section above.
