How to Combine EPUB: A Step-by-Step Guide

After successfully getting Kotobee Author up and running, you can now get started on the important bit, which is importing your different ebooks.

Sherlock Holmes Books

As an example, we’ll use a selection of some of Sherlock Holmes’s finest adventures. We’ll take three separate short stories and combine them into one book. Here’s how to do just that:

  1. First things first, you will need to start a new ebook in Kotobee Author, which is the default setting if it’s your first time using the software.

2. On the left panel, you’ll find the standard ebook editing window where you can start adding the books you wish to merge. This can be done simply by clicking the “Import EPUB” button found at the top left section of the window.

5. By choosing the file you want to add and clicking open, it will load the book onto Kotobee Author, which will display the book’s information. You can now simply click on the “Import” button to add the book. Or if you want to select only a specific chapter, you can choose the “Single chapter” option and select the one you want from the list available.

6. Now that the book is imported, repeat the same process for the other two short stories you want to add. You will see that the individual short stories have been added as chapters to the book.

7. All that’s left now is to edit the new book’s information. This can be done by clicking on the “Book Manager” button, under the “Book Title” box. By doing that, the “Book Manager” window will appear, and you can then edit the book’s title, author, and other book details.

      Unfortunately, Amazon KDP does not directly support EPUB files for publishing. However, you can convert your combined short stories in EPUB format to a compatible format like MOBI using conversion tools or services like Kotobee Author. Once converted, you can upload the MOBI file to Amazon KDP and publish it under your desired title, similar to your other ebooks on KDP. Make sure to review Amazon KDP’s guidelines for formatting requirements.
