How do I make money from reads?

Every month we take 50% of all our revenue and put it into a creator pool to be distributed out across all the books.

Can I set my prices for my books?

Since we don't sell books, you do not need to set a price.  We do allow creators to provide a link where our readers can purchase a copy of your book, which enables a Buy button on your book details page, but we do not get involved in that transaction.  We simply redirect our readers to that link.

When do I get paid?

We allow creators to choose 2 ways to get paid, by PayPal or by Check.  When you join the MagicBlox creator community, you can choose your payment method in your account profile.

If you choose to be paid by Check, we will issue payments on a quarterly basis, once you've cleared $50 of earnings.  You must add your payment mailing address that we can use to send your check to, and it's your responsibility to ensure this address is up to date.  We will process all quarterly payments within 45 calendar days after the end of each quarter, and pay all creators with earnings of more than $...

How do I make my book an Audio book?

You will be able to make your book an audio book at any time, either during upload or in the future as a revision to your book.  All you need is a single MP3 file that has you or someone else reading your book.  Be sure to create about 3 second time gaps in between each page to make it easier to tag page turns.

Once you add your MP3 file to your book, you will have 2 options, Connected Audio or Disconnected Audio.
