Update Your Book Details

Your book details, also called metadata, are the different book attributes you enter when setting up your book title. This information is used to create your book and your book’s detail page. Certain book details can be updated after publication to fix errors. Learn which attributes you can change and how to do it.




What book details can be changed after publishing


After publishing your book, certain features are locked. These features can’t be updated unless you publish the book as a new title from your KDP Bookshelf.
