Need to change something on the Kindle page that displays your book? Try this.
Point one, Amazon calls the web page your book is on in Kindle a “Amazon Product Page”.
Use Amazon Product Page when talking to Amazon Help.
To change something on the book’s page.
- Go to http://kdp.amazon.com.
- Sign in.
- Click on the “(your name here) Account” tab, in the bar with the gray background at the top of the web page.
- On the “(Your Name) Account” page go to the top bar (with the white background) and click on the Bookshelf tab. It’s to the right of “kindle | direct publishing”.
- On the bookshelf page go to the book/icon/thumbnail that you want to edit information on. Across from the thumbnail is a block with two rows of information. The top row is for the eBook. The bottom row is for your paperback book. To update information (example eBook), on the top row go all the way to the right, past the “Kindle Ebook Actions” column to the little box with the ellipses in it. Hover over the ellipses.
- In the popup window click on Edit eBook details if you want to change the book description on the book product page, or change other things like the keywords, the book’s categories, or the author’s name. Click Edit eBook Content if you want to update or revise the eBook.
- I recommend, do not press Unpublish. I believe it will erase all the book’s reviews. Even if you republish the book. Contact me if it does not and I will correct this post.
- After you have updated the information go to the bottom of the page and click the yellow save and continue button. Keep going down to the bottom of the following pages and clicking the save and continue button.
- This did not remove the reviews for the book when I updated information about my book.
Guru’s call Amazon a search engine. To Amazon everything is a product. To them your book is the same as a bag of steer manure. A steer is a bull with vital things missing. Manure is aged bull dropping. They sell a lot of manure, so your book may not be as important as manure to them.
Stay strong, write on.
