Go to Add Single Title, accessible from the Manage Titles section in your account, 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 Info:
This step is required. Add the key information about your book here. Title, Author and Category are necessary information, as they ensure your title will show up in search results.
Step Two: Add Published Work Information:
This step is optional. 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 If your book is unpublished, don't worry if you can't fill in these sections. Go to our Glossary if you need help figuring out what each term means.
Step Three: Upload Media:
This step is optional. Upload a Preview (a 3 chapter sample of your manuscript) or Supplementary Information (any additional information such as translated samples, or examples of illustrations). 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.
Your IPR License membership includes copyright registration and this is the place to upload your manuscript. You will need a PDF or Word file saved on your computer, containing the whole manuscript. Click 'Choose File' and browse for the file you want, then click 'Open'. The name of the file will appear and will upload when you save the record.
Once the manuscript has been uploaded, you'll receive an email with a unique registration code and the date of registration. Keep this in a safe place as you'll need it should you ever need us to retrieve your manuscript for you.
Step Four: Add Your Available Rights:
This step is required. The basis of the IPR License platform is to enable publishers, agents and authors to trade rights. Inputting the rights for your book that are available to sell will mean that people can see you are the rights holder for the record.
Note: once you've created your book, it won't appear in your account straight away as we will need to approve it. 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.
