How to Edit Published Books On OkadaBooks

Okay, let's get this over with like its.... **pauses***....

Welcome to another precious tutorial on how to get your book fixed up and selling again, my name is Magnus -

As you all know, there are two methods of uploading a book on OkadaBooks: CREATING an epub or UPLOADING an already created one. If you used any of these methods, here's how to edit them...


Wait! You can also change your cover, name, price, category and other similar details by editing the book..

How to Edit CREATED EPUB
I'm sharing this first because most of the books on OkadaBooks were created. It's not everyone that uploaded an already existing epub. So if you created an epub and it's selling on the store but you'd like to add to the story or correct the spelling of your favorite food then be my guest:


Go to Okadabooks.com on a computer - Sign in
On the Homepage, hover your mouse on PUBLISH -->> MY PUBLICATIONS
On the MY PUBLICATIONS page, there are two options for each book: The PENCIL sign means edit book and the X symbol means... Delete... not X-Men
Click on the PENCIL to edit the book... The EDIT STORY PAGE will load up.
Once you're done editing, you can, PREVIEW or SAVE the book (recommended) before REPUBLISHING.
And that's that.

How to Edit and Uploaded Epub

I find this method very easy and fast because you're not really editing your epub; you're simply re-uploading a modified version of your epub file.
To do this, you must have the Edited epub file on your computer
Go to Okadabooks.com on a computer - Sign in
On the Homepage, hover your mouse on PUBLISH -->> MY PUBLICATIONS
On the MY PUBLICATIONS page, there are two options for each book: The PENCIL sign means edit book and the X symbol means... Delete... not X-Men
Click on the PENCIL to edit the book... The EDIT STORY PAGE will load up.
It looks like the image below


Click on the Upload icon close to the X to upload the edited copy from your computer - It will replace the current version

or

Click on the X to delete the current version and then the UPLOAD EPUB option shows up for you to upload the edited copy.

It's really easy. Just don't leave the page or reload it in the process...


*Note: If your cover doesn't upload make sure It's less than 1mb in size. Acceptable format is png or jpg. Recommended cover size is 320*400px


Hi

My MS Word document was converted and sent to me by The OkadaMechanic. As I received the epub in my mail inbox, I saw words that I wanted to edit but the file seemed Read Only, worst still, I can't even read from from my Drive or Flash, that I copied to, (except) form the mail,  not mention editing so, I wrote Themechanic, and they fixed it for me. Now I need to do the editing myself, but can't. I have epub file in the PC. How can I edit that on my PC so I can replace the one on store with the edited one as directed in the EDITING AN UPLOADED EPUB in your article?

Please follow the above process, and the new file will replace the old one in the store
