Frequently Asked Questions

Have a question about Bookform?

A digital book can be viewed in any web browser, such as your computer, tablet or smartphone. An e-book needs a device to be viewed, like a kindle.
Once you have started to create your book, click on the 'My Book' tab, top right and a drop down menu gives you options to 'view my digital book', 'invite contributors', 'download a PDF', 'send a link to a printer', download audio files'. There are many options to share or download your book as many times as you like while you create your book.
All of the questions and chapter titles are just prompts, they do not appear in your book. So every answer box can be an answer or story to any question or on any topic that you like. The section titles can be changed.
Bookform is a form of self-publishing, similar to any digital or print manuscript, except it is formatted into a book-like product, with front cover, contents pages, chapters and photographs. You can send the digital or PDF file to an editor or publisher for appraisal. The PDF file can be changed into a word document for editing or uploading to another format. Bookform can introduce professional editors as required, email us your request.
Bookform plans to launch a specialty memoir bookshop shortly, so stay posted on that. You'll be able to upload your digital and PDF file for sale and start making money. Until then, you can forward your book’s url on any digital platform or upload to Amazon.
You are the sole owner of your book. Bookform is a tool to help you create a book; we do not have any access to see what you are writing, rights or control over the contents of your book. No one can see your book until you either share the url or send them the PDF.
When your subscription is about to end you will be asked to download your book file. Once your subscription has lapsed your file will be in an archive for 2 years, and then deleted.
