You have successfully published your book and it is now live on our store. Congratulations! However, you notice a typo that needs immediate attention. What do you do?
Whether it is a content change, metadata update, or price change, you can make changes to a published title at any time.
How to make a metadata change
Sign into your Kobo Writing Life account, select "eBooks" to see your catalogue of titles, and choose the title you would like to update.
You will be automatically directed to the “Describe your eBook” page, where you can make any metadata changes you wish to make.
If you want to make more changes to other parts of the book, select “Save and continue.” If not, select “Save and return to your Library.”
How to make a content change
On the “Add eBook content" step, select the search button to find your file on your computer. Once the correct file has been selected, click “Replace file.”
If your file is not already in an ePub file format, we’ll automatically convert it for you.
- If there are any validation errors, we strongly recommend fixing these before publishing your book. For more information, please see our Validating and Testing Your eBooks article.
Once the upload is complete, select “Next.”
On the “Rights and Distribution” page you can select “Save and return to Library." If you want to make additional changes to your title select "Save and continue."
How to make a price change
Once your book is published, you can set up a sale price or a permanent price change for your title.
Select “Set the price” and then select “Edit Prices.”
Here you can make changes to your default list price, and the price will automatically update for other currencies.
Once your changes are complete, select “Save”.
If you want to make other changes to your title, select “Next”. If you are happy with your changes select “Stop editing”.
How to schedule a permanent price change
If you want to change the default list price for your title but want to schedule the price change in advance, please follow the steps below.
Select "Schedule a price change."
It will prompt you to select a date you want your price to be changed. Then set the new default price for your title. Please note this will also alter all currencies for this title.
When finished select "Save."
If you want to make other changes to your title, select “Next.” If you are happy with your changes select “Stop editing.”
How to schedule a sale price
If you want to put your title on sale for a specific period of time, please follow the steps below.
Select “Set the price” and then "Schedule a sale."
You will be prompted to set a Start Date and an End Date for your sale price. Once completed it will ask you to "Add a currency" or "Add all currencies."
- Please note we don't automatically populate all currency conversions for sale prices; you will have to do this manually.
Once complete select "Save."
If you want to make other changes to your title select “Next.” If you are happy with your changes select “Stop editing."
