Your book details are all the information about your book — including the title, description, keywords, prices and categories. It's possible to change some of these details after publishing. Here's what can be changed, and what can't.

Details that can be changed

Details that can be changed

There are two types of details we can change:

  • Details that don't appear in your book or on its cover. These include your bookstore categories and keywords.

  • Details that appear in your book and on its cover. If your changes include details that appear in your book and on its cover, you should change the details in your book and on its cover too. More on that here →

Details that can't be changed

There are changes to your book that can't be made unless you unpublish and republish your book. These are your book ISBN and publication date.

A note on pre-order dates:

  • If your book is open for pre-orders, you can change your future release date.

  • Pre-ordered books begin printing up to two weeks from a release date.
