In this step, you will be presented with an overview of all information you’ve filled in previously: ranging from title to the cover files, from the summary to the sales. This is the last opportunity to change anything before the publication of your book. Check everything thoroughly, especially your uploaded files! We strongly recommend ordering a review copy before you actually publish your book. This way you can see if the result meets your expectations.
After checking and confirming the details, you just click ‘Publish’ and your book will immediately be put up for sale in our web shop. Congratulations! You just published your book.
- Check all files and all publication information thoroughly! This is your last chance before the official publication of your book!
- Order a review copy first. From past experience we know that once you’ve seen the finished book, you’ll probably want to make some adjustments.
- Send review copies to relevant media and organisations.
- Remember to go through all promotional steps after the publication of your book. A solid promotional effort will dow wonders for your sales!
- Immediately publish your e-book (or print edition) too.
What does the step “Publication” entail?
This is the last step before you publish your book. This is your chance to perform a final check on all information you provided. You can also order a review copy.
Why should I purchase a review copy?
Past experiences have taught us that authors will likely want to make minor adjustments after they have seen their work in print for the first time. We advise you to purchase a review copy and check it thoroughly. You can always apply changes afterwards. The price of a review copy is the lowest tariff in the price table.
Why should I agree with the General Conditions?
Every web shop that sells products and/or services offers General Conditions with which customers have to agree before making their purchase: the same applies to us.
I only created a print book. How do I create an e-book edition?
If you click on ‘Create e-book’ you can easily create an e-book version. We copy all relevant data and automatically create a new book within which you can add the missing information (such as price and sales channels).

If you click on ‘Create Print Edition’ the platform allows you to easily publish a print edition. We copy all relevant data and automatically create a new book within which you can add the missing information (such as price and sales channels).
When will my book be visible and for sale in the web shops?
It takes a few business days until all (web) shops have your book available, including summaries and other relevant information. We cannot do anything about this lead-time, unfortunately: it applies to all published books.
