Changing the Project Size and Options

Opening a revision launches the publishing process. All files and information you previously entered is saved, but you will have the opportunity to update your file(s).


On the Design step, you will have the opportunity to make changes to the interior color, paper type, and binding options.

Once the book is approved for distribution, you will not be able to change any of the following:  
  • Title
  • Author
  • Binding Type
  • Trim Size
  • Interior Color
  • Paper Type

  • You change the title or subtitle of a previously published work.
  • You substantially change the cover design (to the extent that customers would view your book as a new product).
  • You create and publish your work in a new product format (hardcover, paperback, ebook, etc.).
  • You create and publish your work in a new trim size (change the book’s dimensions).
  • You create and publish an ebook in a different file format such as EPUB or PDF.
