Getting Started on a Publisher Plan

On a Publisher plan, there are three basic steps to sharing your books with readers: first, add an author name, then you will upload the book file(s), and finally, you’ll send it to readers so they can download the book! Each of these steps is outlined below to get you started.

Learn how to navigate your dashboard here.

Add Author Name(s)

  1. Click Authors on your BookFunnel dashboard.
  2. Click Add Author Name and complete the short form.
  3. Click Save Author.
  4. You can manage all author names by clicking Authors on your dashboard.

Upload a Book

  1. Click Add New at the top of your BookFunnel dashboard and select Add New Book.
  2. Fill in the book’s details like title and description.
  3. Click Save and Close.
  4. Upload your book cover image. Optionally upload at least one book file (EPUB, MOBI, PDF) if you want BookFunnel to distribute your book. Sales landing pages and preorders do not require an ebook file.

Share the Book With Readers

Once your book is uploaded, it is ready to share with readers!

Here are a few ways you can share your book using BookFunnel:


Can BookFunnel tell me which readers download a book?

Yes, create a landing page that collects email addresses to know exactly who is downloading the book.

Can I set an expiration date on my landing page?

Yes, your page will remain active until 11:59 pm PST on the expiration date you select.

Does BookFunnel promote my book?

BookFunnel is not a promotional platform and we do not have a reader list. Readers will only find your book on our service if you (or someone else) sends them the link to it.

Because we are not a promo site, you can trust that when you send your reader to BookFunnel, they are only going to see your book. They will not receive free content by other authors on our service. While we will never solicit your reader, we think it is awesome when authors work and promote together, so we built this handy board to facilitate those partnerships.

What should I do if a reader emails me for tech support?
