however when you look on the iBooks Bookshelf it says UNKNOWN TITLE and UNKNOWN ARTIST
Instead of using Preview, use iBA's Share/Export as epub, then drop that file onto iTunes and sync w/your iPad - what happens to that meta data then?

On iPad, tap edit, select the books you want to remove, then tap delete.

There's a couple of ways to do this. The easiest is for her to plug her iPad into your mac, and just hit Preview in iBook Author.
If she can't get to you, then export your book as an iBook file (File>export and select iBook format), take the resulting iBook file, and give it to her on disk, or via Dropbox (free cloud-based file sharing program). She can then copy it onto her computer,connect her iPad, drag the ibook file into iTunes, then sync her iPad.

Tap and swipe left on the title you wish to delete, then tap the red [Delete] button on the left in that row.

To be honest, you should really put this under a seperate post of your own, but I'm not here to whine...
It sounds that you haven't defined the book title yet.
Open your book in iBooks Author and go to the panel on the left-hand side of your screen that shows your page thumbnails. Scroll to the top of this box, and find the panel that has the:
Table of contents
If your Book Title here says simply 'Book Title', then define it by double-clicking on the 'Book Title' text in the thumnails panel, and type in your book's title.
