Adding and Editing Your Author Pen Name(s)

Author plans on BookFunnel are designed for one author to distribute his or her own books. We require a proper author name in the Author Name field when sharing a book, so you want to add the correct author details right from the start! Author plans include 1 – 3 pen names per account, and if your plan includes more than one pen name, you can add them all at once, or add and edit them as you need them.

Manage promotions or review copy distribution for more than one author? Need more than 3 pen names? Learn more about our publishing plans here.

Add an Author Pen Name

  1. Click Pen Names on your BookFunnel dashboard.
  2. Click Add Pen Name and complete the short form.
    • Author Name: This is should match the name on your book cover.
    • Author email address: This is an email address for your readers, should they need to contact you. If any of your book download pages collect reader email addresses, this email address will be included in the confirmation email BookFunnel sends them. This email IS NOT your BookFunnel account email address, as your account email address will always remain private.
    • Optionally, link to your author website.
  3. Click Save Author.

Once you have added an author name, you can upload your book and start sharing it with readers.

Edit a Pen Name

If you edit an existing pen name, it will change the name on all books tied to the original name. If you are only allowed one pen name on your account and wish to switch your account to your second pen name, you will first need to delete any books tied to your first pen name before you replace it with your second pen name. Learn how to delete your books here.
