As shown below adding Val McDermid's Common Murder of which the file name is "Val McDermid - Common Murder.epub"



Please someone
Your Metadata from filename is backwards from your filename convention that was used.

Correcting those (already imported) is easy.
Select (all) the books that are flipped
tap 'E' (edit metadate (bulk mode if more than 1 title)


1) single Mode: there is a up/down arrow icon to the LEFT of the Author Title. Use it

2) Bulk mode: there is the Swap tick box on the right (under Authors). Use it
