In this step, you will be presented with an overview of all information you’ve filled in previously: ranging from the 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, just click ‘Publish’ and your book will immediately be put up for sale in our webshop. 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 do wonders for your sales!
- Immediately publish your ebook (or print edition) too.
What does the step “Final Check” entail?
This is the last step before you publish your book. This is your last chance to check if all the files and information you provided are in order. You can also order a proof copy.
Why should I purchase a proof 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 proof copy and check it thoroughly. You can always apply changes afterwards.
Why should I agree with the general terms and conditions?
Every webshop that sells products and/or services has general terms and conditions with which customers have to agree before making their purchase, and for once, we can honestly say that we’re no different from any other business.
I only created a print book, but I also want an ebook version. How do I create one?
If you click on ‘Create ebook’ you can easily create an ebook version of your book. 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 my selected webshops?
It takes a few business days until all (web)shops make your book available for purchase, including summaries and other relevant information. We cannot do anything to influence this, unfortunately: it applies to all published books.
