Hi,
I just have feedback. Would be amazing to be able to change your book description on the Amazon product page without having to go through the entire republish your book process. I understand there still needs to be some control, but sometimes you find a new description will sell the book better, and yet you made no changes to the content of the book. It would seem the control process on the Amazon / KDP end might be easier as well if you knew we were just changing book description vs. actual content.

Just a suggestion.
Thanks so much,
LJ Evans

You can change your description at Author Central if you have claimed your books there.
It actually shows up on the sales page FASTER doing it there.

What Donna said.

However, be aware that, at any future time when you make any changes to your book from the Bookshelf (prices, keywords, etc.) the old description will be published and wipe out the new one you entered at Author Central.
