How to Edit Author's Name in ePub Books?
During the reading of an ePub book, you may encounter such problems that the book lacks of the author name, or give you a wrong name. Organize your eBooks by author names is one of the best name to make your library consistent, and also there are many book fans like to search for their favorite book by author name. In that case, a missing writer's name or a wrong writer's name can make the organization inconveniently.
Why we don't recommend Sigil?
Well, some people told me to use the Sigil, freeware for ePub editing. With it, what you do is to open the epub with Sigil and press the key "F8" (or go to the "Tool" menu and there select "Metadata Editor". In the dialog that appears you will come up with a field named "Author:", where you can write the correct author name. After that press "Ok" to close the dialog and then save the book (File/Save). That's all. See? the operations seems fussy and the program runs heavy in my computer. That's why I choose another tool, which is much better and easier than Sigil.
The Sigil alternative tool I recommended is the iPubsoft ePub Designer or ePub Designer for Mac, which is really a helpful ePub WYSIWYG editor to help you add/delete text and images in ePub books, correct spelling/typos, chapter breaks and change formatting, change the font and text color, customize the cover image, create new ePub books on your own and even generate a new TOC based on headings in your book if needed.
