I've decided that the present title of one of my books isn't working and I want to change it. I've done this on KDP but how do I change it on my Author's Page?

It can take a few days for the author's page to catch up with the new title if you just did this.

Hope you just changed the title in the metadata and republished, rather than starting over from scratch? I also hope that you put in the description that this book was "formerly known as" so as not to confuse people who'd read and liked it.

Yep, the traditional method is to put the info on the copyright page: eg:

First published as Whatever Title Was. Copyright: Whatever the orginal copyright year was.

Make sure to get a new ISBN, if you used one.
