What is BookRix?
What is BookRix?

BookRix is a free self publishing platform that offers eBook distribution services to independent writers. Our users can share their writing, connect with other readers and discover new stories and authors – all in one place. Upon registration, a new account profile will be created for you. Your personal profile can be customized to your liking and is equipped with all the tools you will need to create your own eBooks, list your favorite literature, promote yourself as an author and publish your work to major online shops.

Technology is constantly in motion. Over the years it has changed the way we play our music, watch movies and discover new content. The freedom that technology offers has inspired us to create a company dedicated to providing independent writers with the means to publish their work without the restrictions traditional publishing houses impose. With that idea firmly planted in our minds, BookRix was born.

BookRix was the first book community to give their writers a platform to promote and sell their work on the web as a published eBook. In addition, indie reading enthusiasts are given access to a fast growing virtual library filled with unique content to read and share among their reading circles.

Creating a New eBook on BookRix

Creating an eBook on BookRix is easy! Log into your BookRix account and click the Create New Book button highlighted on the upper right hand side of your screen. You’ll be prompted to enter a book title. But don’t worry, this can be changed at any time. After you enter the title, click Create Book to get started.

On the book editing page, there are three options to choose from: Edit Book Content, Edit Book Info, and Edit Cover. Completion of all three fields is required to share or publish your book, but you can decide which section to fill out first.

Please note: There is a 2000 word minimum to publish and distribute your ebook.

After you have filled out all the information in the 3 required fields (content, book info, and cover), please select whether you want to sell your eBook in the external shops or publish your book for free, only on BookRix.

If you select Only on BookRix  and determine who is allowed to view your book (All Users or Friends) you can now click Publish Book. If your book is missing information, you will receive a notification directing you to the section(s) requiring your attention with a pink outline around the fields. If your book is published for free on BookRix you can edit it an any time. If you wish to remove the book from public view you can undo the publication by clicking Undo Publication when you are in the Edit Book section.

If you select All shops, you are agreeing to sell your book in the shops that we distribute to (Amazon, Barnes & Nobel, Kobo, iTunes...). From here, click on Sell Book and then choose your price from $0.00 to $49.00.  Check the box that you have read and understood the Author Agreement and then click Sell Book.

If you have already published your ebook on Amazon, we can still move forward. But to do this, we will need the ASIN number associated with your ebook on Amazon. Currently, Amazon is the only exception we can make. If your book was published and sold on iTunes, we would be unable to accept your ebook for publication. To move forward with BookRix, you would need to remove your ebook from iTunes completely. Once removed, you would be able to use our services.

If you haven’t filled all of the required fields of the necessary areas (Content, Book info, Cover), you will receive a notification alert.  Then you will know which area is missing content because a pink line will appear around the Edit Book ContentEdit Book Info and/or Edit Cover button(s).

How to Read an eBook on BookRix
How to Read an eBook on BookRix

Reading an eBook on BookRix is easy. Once you find a book you’re interested in reading, just click the book cover or book title and this will take you to the Book Info page. From here, you can either click on the book cover once more or click Read Book (this option is available on free books) or Reading Sample (this option applies to books for sale). Clicking either of these options will take you to our book viewer where you can begin reading.

Tip:  If an author has placed their book for sale, they will offer a free reading sample. This is approximately 10% of the book. It is intended to get the reader interested in reading more.

Tip: If you have not finished reading a book and want to return to it, you can add the title to your favorites and it will appear on your profile page. The book will automatically  be bookmarked for you.

When you’re reading a book within the book viewer, you will see two icons at the top of each page. The one on the left, shaped like a house, will take you directly to the BookRix homepage. The icon on the right, shaped like a list, will open the table of contents so you can easily move from one chapter to another. If you’re reading a sample of a book for sale, you will also see a Buy This Book button that will give you a list of online shops you can purchase the book in.

Can I create samples for my author website on BookRix?

Yes, you can use BookRix as a marketing tool for your external website totally free of charge.

Can I have more than one account on BookRix?
Can I have more than one account on BookRix?

As stated in our Code of Conduct (the great rules of BookRix); BookRix does not allow multiple accounts per member.

If it’s discovered that a member has multiple accounts and has entered a contest, the less active accounts are deleted and the contest entries are disqualified.

Does BookRix have the exclusive publishing rights of the books?
Does BookRix have the exclusive publishing rights of the books?

BookRix does not and will never own the exclusive rights to your content. By publishing your book on BookRix.com, you only give us the right to show your work on our website and through our partner channels. Once you remove the book we can no longer use it, which would be sad but we’ll get over it.

If you delete your content (sniff, sniff), we no longer have the right to display your work. However, you may not upload your book using the BookRix format to other websites since BookRix owns the proprietary rights to the book format technology. That’s how we roll in these parts.

I've already placed my work in many online boards. May I also post them on BookRix?
I've already placed my work in many online boards. May I also post them on BookRix?

Of course. As long as you comply with the Code of Conduct (The great rules of BookRix), you can publish any manuscript to which you hold the copyright. But again, if your book is already published with another publisher for sale, you may not be able to self-publish your eBook via BookRix.
