Yes, you can get an overview in your "Sale Figures" field under "My Account Details". From here you can check out your stats from our more popular shops.
Keep in mind that once you stop the sale of your book, it can take 4-8 weeks to be removed from the eBook market.
Yes! However, you should label the book clearly as a sample. Otherwise, readers may expect a complete book and may judge negatively as a result. Check with your publishing house to see if you are allowed to publish your content on BookRix as your publishing house may hold the copyright and not you.
You, as the author of the book, will always have access to the entire book for free. If you wish to see what your book looks like to another users, simply log out of your account and access your book. You will see that only a 10% reading sample is available.
TIP: Keep in mind that if your book is marked with an 18+ age recommendation (adult content only) then you will not be able to get access to your book if you are logged out of BookRix. The system needs to recognize the age of the user, therefore, anyone who is not logged in, is a minor, has their family filter turned on, or doesn’t have the age filled out on their profile will not be able to access a book marked with an 18+ age recommendation.
If your book was sold on the external markets then it will take about 6-8 weeks for the stats and figures to appear in your "Sale Figures" field. These numbers are updated monthly near the middle/end of each month. For example if your book was purchased in January, you will not see the stats in your BookRix account until the end of March, possibly April. We update the numbers as soon as we receive them.
It’s not you, it’s your Browser Cache.
BookRix receives many questions regarding images on BookRix that may be changed in some places but not all places. For example, if you change your profile picture, you may see the change in postings but still see the old picture on your profile page. This is because your browser cache holds onto images for faster loading and when a change is made, this could take some time for the system to catch up with the change.
So the best way to fix this problem is to clear your web browser cache. To do this, go to Google and type in "How to clear browser cache using (enter your web browser here)". Follow the instructions provided, close your browser, reopen your BookRix account and see if your changes have taken effect. They should be there now!
Here's more information about browser caches:
What is "browser cache"?
Your browser (Netscape, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, etc.—whatever application you use to surf the web) has a folder in which certain items that have been downloaded are stored for future access. Graphic images (such as buttons, banners, icons, advertising, graphs, and color bars), photographs, and even entire web pages are examples of cache items. When going to a page on a website, your computer will check its cache folder first to see if it already has those images and, if so, it won't take the time to download them again. This makes for a faster loading of the page. Cache folders can get quite large, however, and can occupy 40-to-50-to-100 megabytes or more of hard drive space, storing graphics for sites you may never visit again, so it may be wise for those with storage concerns to empty the cache periodically. That will also enable the browser to access updated web pages without the older cache item interfering.

Very short books have a tendency to be rejected from external shops because they feel that there is not enough content to justify a cost for the book. We abide by industry standards and currently most online shops require a minimum of 2000 words to publish a book.
Remember, your book blurb is required to be a minimum of 140 (max 3000) characters. This blurb is important to catch the potential readers attention to want to read/buy your book. So use your words! If you're lacking inspiration, take a look at some of the book descriptions of your favorite books written by your favorite authors and see how they did it.

Here’s where you come in. Since we have a lot of young members on BookRix, we ask you to not upload content to your profile or in groups that may not be suitable for minors since those areas are accessible to all visitors (even if they’re not registered). As for your book content, if you think that the content of your book is not suitable for minors, then you should indicate that with an 18+ “Adult Content Only” age recommendation when you create your book. When you select this option, minors, unregistered users and anyone with their family filter turned on will not have the ability to see your book on the site.
