Adding and Editing Your Books (MOBI, EPUB, PDF)

You can easily add a new book to BookFunnel, or edit an existing book (without interrupting any downloads).

To upload a new ebook, you will need at least one book file (EPUB, MOBI, or PDF) and your book’s cover image in JPEG format. If you do not provide a book cover, BookFunnel will use a generic book cover image.

If you have both a MOBI and EPUB of your book, please upload both. If you only have one file format, BookFunnel will automatically generate the other. Meaning, if you provide an EPUB file only, BookFunnel will compile a MOBI from your EPUB. If you provide a MOBI file only, BookFunnel will compile an EPUB file from your MOBI.

If you only upload a PDF file, that will be the only file available to readers. You cannot create a MOBI or EPUB from a PDF without significant formatting problems.

Upload Your Ebook

You already added your author name, right?

To upload your ebook, you must have at least one book file and the book cover image in JPEG format.

  1. Click the Add button at the top of your dashboard and select Add New Book.
  2. Complete the form.
    • Book Label: This is a convenient reference for you. Example: “Pride and Prejudice with bonus scene from Emma”
    • Book Title: This is your book’s title. Example: Pride and Prejudice
    • Author Name: Select your Author Name from the drop-down.
    • Amazon ASIN: If your book is on Amazon, please provide the ASIN or ISBN. This will help correctly identify your books on all Kindle devices and Kindle apps. Learn more about Amazon ASINs here.
    • Book Tagline: Entice readers with a short sentence so that they have to download your book. Your tagline will be used to pre-populate the headings on any download page you create.
    • Book Description: We will use this book description to pre-populate your book download pages going forward.
  3. Upload your book cover and book files. Maximum file size: EPUB (23 MB max), MOBI (23 MB max so that readers can still email it to their Kindle account)
  4. If your books are illustrated or are compiled with Vellum or similar formatting software, you might want to check the “My books require the KF8 format” box. Learn more about MOBI Files and the KF8 Format here.
  5. Click Save And Close.

Edit Your Book Details

You can edit your book title, book description, or change your author name, without pausing your active download page(s).

If you used custom text on your download pages, you will need to edit your download pages individually. Learn how to edit your existing download page here.

To edit any text on your book, or to check the KF8 box:

  1. Click Books on your BookFunnel dashboard and then click the title of the book you wish to edit.
  2. Click Edit Book Details and make your changes.
  3. Click Save And Close.

Replace Your Book Files

You can edit or replace any book files without breaking your BookFunnel pages. Upload a new MOBI, EPUB, PDF, or book cover and BookFunnel will immediately begin serving up the new files.

To edit or replace your book files:

  1. Click Books on your BookFunnel dashboard and then click the title of the book you wish to edit.
  2. Click Edit Book Details.
  3. In the Book Files panel, upload or replace your files.
  4. Click Save And Close.

Delete Your Book

Wait! If you delete your book, any reader that clicks on a link you sent them previously is going to see an “invalid link” message. It is best to expire any active pages, which will prevent anyone else from downloading your book. When you delete a book, any active Certified Mail campaigns, Giveaway pages, or download pages will also be deleted and you will lose any record of the book on BookFunnel, including its history and subscriber data. This action cannot be undone.

If you must delete the book, here is how:

  1. Click Books on your BookFunnel dashboard and then click the title of the book you wish to delete.
  2. Click Delete in the top-right corner.
  3. Confirm you want to delete the book and it will be removed immediately from BookFunnel.
