How can I upload a single title?
Go to Titles in the top menu and choose Add Titles. Or got to the Manage Titles-Section in your account and browse to Add Single Title under the subheading Add Metadata, and follow the steps there. Don't worry if you miss a step - you can edit all information after your record's been approved by going to My Books and clicking Edit there.
Step One: Add Key Information
Add the key information about your book here. Title, Author and ISBN are mandatory fields, as they ensure your title will show up in search results.
Important: You can use a specific ISBN/title identifier only once. More information on this can be found here.
Step Two: Add Published Work Information
Fill in all information you have for this book. If your book has been published, this is the place to indicate who published it, whether it has illustrations, etc. If your book is unpublished, don't worry if you can't fill in these sections.
Step Three: Upload Media
This step is optional. Upload a Cover, Supplementary Information and a Content Cample. A publisher browsing through the website may be more likely to contact you about your work if they are able to see a sample of it beforehand. You will need these saved as PDFs on your computer. Click Choose File and browse for the PDF file you want, then click Open. The name of the file will appear and will upload when you save the record.
You can choose all privacy settings for individual rights and media uploads in the Privacy Settings-Section of your Account.
