Change or remove a book file after publication
Editing your book file:
If you want to make changes to your book, its cover or its metadata after you have completed your Print request, go to Print>My books. Open your book’s page, click on the “pencil” icon, make your changes, and Save.
- If your book’s page is not changeable (for example, because it was created before January 2019), please write to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can make the modifications for you.
- If you plan on uploading a different PDF file format, note that this file is considered a new edition of your book. Accordingly, you will need to complete a new print order, with a new ISBN.
- If you want to change your book’s price, make sure that the new price covers printing costs. You can do so through our calculator.
Removing your book from sale:
To remove your paper book from the online stores where we distributed it, please write to email@example.com so we can take care of it for you.
Please note that Amazon may print a maximum of 10 copies of your book before receiving an order, so they can send orders promptly, especially if the book is popular. Amazon users are also allowed to sell used copies of your book. Consequently, there may be a delay before your request - modification or removal - is effective, as Amazon will first sell copies already printed. If you want all the old copies to be removed right away, you will need to buy them.
The product page on Amazon will remain even if the book is unavailable for print. Note that this won't prevent you from doing whatever you'd like with your book in the future. You can leave it as is, put it back on sale through us with a new updated version or through another distributor or publisher, as you wish.
