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.
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.
First we’d like to congratulate you on writing your book! We understand the hard work involved and would like to commend you on a job well done. Now that you’re ready to move forward, we can guide you through our self publishing process that allows you to sell and distribute your work across the eBook market. Our services are free and simple to use.
Let’s get started!
Of course you can. Just make sure that your book is ready for publication. Make sure it’s free of typos, has a high quality cover, a detailed blurb, etc. and then set a reasonable selling price and you’re all set.
Make sure you read through our formatting style guide HERE before putting your book for sale
You sure can. You can divide your longer story and publish it as a series. You can then link a series of books together so readers can easily go from one to the next via links on the book’s page. We almost make it fool proof. Otherwise, you can simply publish a smaller portion of your book as a sample for readers. You might even develop a dedicated fan club by releasing your story or stories in segments on BookRix. Who wouldn’t want a fan club?
Edit Book Info allows you to complete the following:
Author name(s), book title, subtitle, blurb/synopsis (minimum 140 characters, maximum 3000 characters), dedication and keywords. You can also select a book category (genre), recommended reading age, and language.
Below this area, you will find the Copyright Information & Acknowledgements section. Here you can enter the copyright holder for any applicable text or images, along with the name of your editor, proofreader and/or translator (if applicable).
Tip: Always save your changes
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.
Whether your book has been submitted for publishing and is pending BookRix approval or it’s already available for purchase in our online shops, you can still make edits. To do this, 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’. All revision requests will be completed by the end of the following business day. If your book is currently being sold in online shops, it will remain there. Once you have updated and saved your book edits, please submit it for sale. BookRix will then send the newest version to our online shops.
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.
