The first step in the content creation process of your ebook, is to type the title of your book under Book Title. This title is important as it will appear in the header of your ebook or app. External ebook readers rely on this as the display name of the book. You book cover image may be added by clicking on the current cover image next to the book title.

If you wish to add more credentials to your book, you can do so from the Book manager.

All the information in the Book manager is stored as metadata for the book. It helps describe the book to ebook readers.

  • You may enter a legitimate author name under Author, or leave it blank if there is no author.
  • You may enter a legitimate publisher name under Publisher, or leave blank if there is no publisher.
  • You can specify the book’s language under Language. This will be used by your readers for translation purposes.
  • If the book you are creating has an ISBN number, you may enter it under ISBN. The ISBN (International Standard Book Number) is a unique commercial book identifier. For more information, please visit isbn.org.
  • Legitimate information on your book’s copyrights can be entered under Rights. This may include the form of identification of the owner/author, year of publication, along with the copyright symbol ©.
  • It is recommended to provide a brief summary of your book for your readers under Description to have an idea about the content of your book without having to open it. This is particularly useful if the book will be part of a library, as the description along with the book cover are the only pieces of information that the will describe the book to the user. 
  • For your convenience, Kotobee Author provides you with an option to autogenerate the table of contents of your book. You can do so by simply checking the Autogenerate Table of Contents page box. This will automatically add an initial page to the book, outlining the chapters with corresponding links for ease of access. This is set off by default.
  • Note that the SCORM tab is used for elearning purposes, when integrating the ebook with an LMS. This is discussed later in the Integrating with an LMS section.
  • Click OK to save and exit the window.
