So I found this out the hard way:

"Yes, unfortunately, when you re-upload an ePub the title disappears from all lists and has to be replaced. The volume ID for the book changes, which causes this problem.

You also lose all your star ratings.

This is an issue we are hoping to have fixed very soon, as we know that authors should be able to update their ePub whenever they like.

There is a small solution if you like to include links to your other books at the back of your ePub.

As you may have figured out, a new book link every time you update your ePub makes it nearly impossible to include links at the back of your books. Because every time you upload the ePub the link will change and become incorrect in other books.

This article provides a permanent link that solves this:

You learn something new everyday! :-\

Wait, whaaaaat? That just doesn't make any sense. Why would they make it do that? Also, thanks for bringing this to my attention. I would never have even thought about this being an issue otherwise.
