Create a Book

KDP’s book setup makes it easy for you to upload, enter, and modify your book before publishing. The information you enter during this setup will be used in creating your book’s Amazon detail page. The detail page is where readers go to buy your book. If you want to sell your book as an eBook, hardcover, and paperback, be sure to create all formats in your KDP account and link them together.

Note: Before publishing your book, don’t forget to format your manuscript and cover. You can review our guidelines and recommendations on Paperback FormattingHardcover Formatting, and eBook Formatting in our Help Center.

Enter Book Details

Entering your book details is the first step towards publishing your book. These details directly correlate with what shows up on the Amazon detail page for your book. You have full control over what is displayed. However, keep in mind that some of these fields can’t be modified once your book is published. We recommend paying extra close attention to ensure all of these details are correct.

To see an example of how your book details will show up on your detail page visit J.K. Rowling’s page for Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.

To see a list of what details can and can’t be changed after publishing, visit our Update Your Book Details page.

The title, subtitle, author name, series information, and ISBN in your manuscript file must match the details you enter during title setup. Kindle eBooks, paperbacks, and hardcover books are linked automatically if the author name and book title of both editions match exactly. During the publishing process, KDP tries to match book details like title and author name to other editions available in the Amazon catalog.

Entering your book details is the first step of the setup workflow. To begin, follow the steps below:

  1. Go to your Bookshelf.
  2. Click the “+” button for the type of book you want to start under the “Create a New Title” section.
