How do I delete an uploaded book entry?

I'm new to Kindle and attempted to upload in a taboo format (Word.docx). The incomplete, improperly converted file is uselessly sitting there because I'm unable to do anything with it except to re-upload as an HTML file. I should be able to delete the old one. I notice that such a question was first posted two years ago, and DTP and Amazon have done nothing to provide a delete button. I agree with people who asked a similar question before me, it's sloppy to allow the non-existence of a delete button.

I don't think there's any need to delete it. If you upload an html file, it will over-write what's previously there. You can check this on Preview.

I'm having the same problem. Has anyone found a solution? Why doesn't Amazon allow you to delete?

Probably because if a copy has been sold, the title must stay in the system so that the buyer can re-download it if necessary.

You can ask DigitalRights to suppress a title, however, so that it no longer shows up in a search.
