Yes, you can share your name and password and thus allow other(s) to work on the same book. We do not suggest that you work on the same book at the same time. When this happens, the last person to ‘save’ erases any changes that are being made at the same time.
Of course! As many times as you wish. There is no limit to the number of times you, as the writer, can go in and make as many changes or additions as you wish. Yours is a living book!
