Apple released an update to iBooks Author that allows you to import ePub files as a new book project.
Peter Pappas's insight:

Once in iBooks Author your book is converted to Apple’s .ibooks format. This means you can use all the great formatting tools with iBooks Author, but as your book is no longer an ePub file you won’t be able to use it in Book Creator or read on non-Apple devices.
