Use iBooks Author's menu 'Share/Export'...save as .ibooks where you can find it. Drag it to iTunes.
Select your iPad in iTunes, then the Books tab, then confirm your book is checked for sync.
Perform a sync, then run iBooks and test.

Remember, your users won't be looking at any 'preview'. Don't count on it being the final arbiter of what they'll download.
