Clicking Continue to Proof is the second step in publishing your book. You'll be taken to a screen where we show you all the pages of your actual book, laid out for you to inspect. You can see them all, and check the layout.
If you have changes to make, or are not yet ready to publish — that's fine. You can safely go back to your draft book.
If you are happy with your pages, and are ready to publish, click Continue to Publish.
