When a book is submitted for sale, it is sent to our BookRix review team for approval. During this process, they will download the ePub file of your ebook and review everything from the book cover to the layout of the book. If your book is approved, it will be sent to our online shops for distribution. Upon the approval of our third party shops, your ebook will be placed in their online store for purchase.
If our review team identifies errors within your submission, they will place your ebook in “revise” mode and send an email to the email address associated with your BookRix account. The email will explain why your book was not approved and outline the issues you will need to fix in order to publish your ebook. If your book is continually resubmitted without changes, we will not longer accept your book for review.
Books submitted to the BookRix review team will be processed within 3-5 business days and sent for distribution. Typically, our online shops will have the approved books listed in their shops shortly thereafter.
Yes, of course you can. If your book gets rejected and doesn’t meet the criteria for sale, you will receive an email from BookRix support informing why your ebook was rejected. Your book will then be set to "revise" mode, which means only you as the author can view the book. At that point, you can make your edits/corrections and put your book back up for sale once again for a second review. If your book is continually resubmitted without the necessary changes, we will no longer consider it for review.
Yes! Log into your BookRix profile and click on your username in the upper right hand side of the BookRix web page. Select ‘My Books’ from the drop down menu and select the book you want to make changes to from this list. Once you have the book pulled up, click ‘Edit Book’. A pop-up window will appear. Follow the instructions and click ‘Request’. Your book will be placed in "revise" mode by the end of the following business day. An email confirmation will be sent once your books is ready for changes. When you have been notified that your book is in "revise" mode, simply follow the steps for selling your book in all shops. You will then be asked to set the price of your book. Once you have selected the new price, simply resubmit it for sale. BookRix will review your changes and forward the newest version of your ebook price to our online shops.
Please note that it may take a few days for the new price to be reflected in our online shops.

If you can see comments, but there is no box to create one, then you must first join the group. As soon as you click the Join Group button, you will immediately be a member and have access to the group.
Private Groups: If the group is listed as private, you will not be able to post a comment as a non-member. You must first click the Join Group button which will then change to ? Request Sent.

Members: You can also monitor the members of your group by clicking on the Members tab. You can search for members and you can also edit a member’s role (as Administrator, Moderator, or Member). If you decide to upgrade a member into an Admin, you are giving them the same rights as you have.

Settings: If you select Administrators and Moderators in the drop down, you can search for a member and appoint them (using the drop down) as either a Moderator or an Admin. You can also remove a member from their role as Moderator or Admin by clicking on Remove next to their name. If you select Block User from the drop down, you can search for group members and block them. Blocked members will not be able to create posts or comments and will not be able to rejoin the group. You can also use the same tab to Unblock members.
If you want to edit the group details, just click on the Edit button at the top of the group page. There, you will have access to all the information you filled in when you first started the group.
