If you have the exclusive license rights it is okay (like publishing houses normally do). But we don´t distribute eBooks when the copyright owner has sold the license rights to multiple persons for money, because we want to prevent the risk that identical eBooks are sold via BookRix with different ISBN.
Don’t worry. Your monthly earnings can be located in the “Sales and Payments” report section. Towards the middle/end of each month your royalty payout will be displayed in a PDF document under your “Sales and Payments” report. When this occurs, your next earning period begins and the display will read €0.00. The total amount of books sold will always be visible, unless you delete a previously sold book from the site.
Here comes some legal mumbo jumbo. Fanfiction normally uses content of existing works (films, books, etc.). However, often this happens without the permission of the authors or the rights’ holders. Even if fanfiction authors accurately represent the copyright holders in their books, this does not qualify as legal approval from the copyright holder allowing use of his or her work for fanfiction literature. Therefore, a large part of fanfiction works are legally inadmissible. So the fanfiction category can be seen as an invitation to violate copyright and we want to avoid such complications. So, in other words it’s not OK so don’t do it.
But on the bright side, there’s also legal fanfiction which are fanfiction books based on books or films whose very kind authors allow the use of the content. These books may be posted on BookRix, according to our General Terms and Conditions (remember the great rules of BookRix). In this case, you have to select the appropriate category (e.g. science fiction or fantasy) in the Subcategory field. You can introduce any other category you want to.
Every once in a while, there will be a small contest or writing challenge held in a group. It will either be hosted by BookRix, or by a user. Everyone is welcome to participate, just make sure you pay close attention to the contest guidelines.
Entering a Group Contest
If you are not already a member of the group where the contest or writing challenge is being held, you will first need to join the group. You can do so by going to the group’s page and clicking the Join Group button on the right. Then, scroll down to the submissions thread and enter your submission within the appropriate timeframe and be sure to adhere to the guidelines of the contest.
How to win a Group Contest
There are two ways to judge a contest: (1) A panel of judges, or (2) A Voting thread.
Sometimes group Admins or another type of panel will vote on the submissions instead of the community – creating a panel of judges. In this case, the announcement of the winner(s) will be posted within that group and around the site. Otherwise, a voting thread will be opened once the submissions period is over, if that is how the group contest is being run. You can vote within that voting thread during the time period specified in the guidelines. These types of challenges/contests are fun because they are intended for short writing submissions and don’t last as long as a major contest.
Creating Your Own User Contest in a Group
Feel free to do whatever you would like with your user contest. Anyone can host a user contest, and you don’t need to contact BookRix. If you’re an Admin or Moderator in a group, you can hold the contest there, or you can host the contest on your own profile. You can create your own contest/challenge idea, create your own guidelines, fix your own start and end dates, and provide your own prizes. You can even decide how the winner will be chosen (voting/panel of judges/yourself). Post the information about your user contest in the I Love BookRix Writing Contests group and BookRix will help by promoting your user contest in the sidebar.
Generally, this is how you should run your contest: First, the contest or writing challenge is announced and guidelines are set forth. Then, the entry/submission thread is posted. Make sure you mark the thread as Important (using the settings tool icon) so that it’s easy to find. Submissions can be entered into the thread by adding a comment with a link to your submission or by posting your entry directly in the comments (depending on the contest guidelines).
Upload an ePub file
If you’ve already created your eBook as a finished epub file, you can now easily and conveniently upload and publish your eBook on BookRix just the same as a MS Word docx file. Epubs are commonly supported by most eBook readers however, if you don’t have an epub, you can convert your file to an ePub for uploading. We recommend using Calibre http://calibre-ebook.com/ Not all files may be supported for conversion therefore, if you have any difficulty with converting your file to an ePub, we recommend contacting Calibre support.
NOTE: ePub files that are DRM protected, cannot be uploaded on BookRix.
When you upload your ePub file you can choose between two options:
The original ePub file will be used to create the eBook
With this option, you will not lose any formatting you have created in your text. However, if there are required edits to your book, you will not be able to make these changes in the BookRix editor. You will have to make your corrections in your file and re-upload the ePub file. In addition, your eBook will not be able to be read online (only downloaded as an ePub) nor will there be a reading sample offered on BookRix (only in the shops, if your book is for sale).Keep in mind that your ePub will be checked to make sure that it’s a valid ePub file. If your ePub is not a valid file, you will be notified and directed to a page explaining to you the things you need to consider when creating an ePub file so that it is perfect and ready for publication.
The original ePub file will be converted into the BookRix editor
With this option, your file will convert into the BookRix editor and therefore be editable if you need to make changes. You also have the advantage of your book being available to be read online and a reading sample offered, if your book is for sale.
