BookSmart

How to title a book with dustcover that's my own design?

I replaced the template-based front dust cover with a deisgn of my own, imported to Booksmart as a full-bleed JPEG. I had to delete the title text in the old template, and Booksmart can’t read the title in the JPEG, so it thinks the book is untitled. How do I add a title and author that can be seen on the web site?

TIA,

Jim

Hi Jim!

Go to My Books, logging in if you aren’t already. You will see your list of books as a series of covers. Click on the one you are wanting to change the title of.

You will be taken to a window where you will see, in a green bar above the book, SUMMARY on the left of that green stripe and Edit on the right.

Click on that Edit and you will be taken to a window where you can make the changes you want.

Thanks, Tony. I never noticed the Edit button.

Nor did I Jim, it took someone else to point it out to me!

Similarly I went a couple of months editing my book before I spotted the Preview button :-(

Well Tony and Jim,

It seems that both of you see what I don’t: I log in, go to My Books, All Books: then I click on the book of which I would like to change the title. I then get the book settings page, which has no green stripe above the book or anywhere. All I can do there is edit my book settings or edit book summary. These are two tabs below the book. I suppose that I can type any title in the book summary.
But what I am actually looking for, is how I can change my book title while it is still in Book Smart. The people on the Blurb video’s keep saying: ‘’type a title when you begin – you can always change it later.’’ But I can’t find where I can do that.
