Book Earnings Program

Expanding our support of schools, educators and non-profit organizations and in recognition of growing talent among our members in creative writings, children stories, poetry and biography, we have designed our Author Profit program to facilitate sales of books specially created at Bookemon for fundraising purposes in addition to for personal rewards. As an author, you can add a desired dollar amount per copy to be paid out when your books are sold at Bookemon to a 3rd party. This will not affect the base price of the book paid by the book creator.           Questions on selling your book for earnings?

Questions on selling your book for earnings?

How does book earnings work?
You can choose to sell your book on our site for earnings. It is totally up to you on the book earnings you would want. We will add the base price of your book (price of book you pay as the author) plus your book earnings and a Bookemon administrative fee (20% of your book earnings) to make up the total retail price of the book to the public. If discounts have been applied to volume purchases or sales to booksellers such as Amazon and others, your book earnings will be reduced proportional to the discount and if the discounts to booksellers exceed the amount of book earnings set by you, no book earnings will be accrued to your account. Please review the Author Payment section in our Membership Agreement for details. You can revise book earnings after you publish your book.
How does book earnings work if your title is published under Creative Author Press?
Authors of Creative Author Press are free to decide whether to make earnings from sales of their books or not. In order to make earnings from sales of your book, you will need to enter your desired Book Earnings during the Publish process.

You can find out the sales and total earnings earned under Sales and Earnings of your Account Settings page.

In order to receive earnings, you will need to provide Bookemon with a valid PayPal account. You can enter the PayPal account registered email address at http://www.bookemon.com/my_sales_profit.php

How do I change the book earnings for my book?
If your book is published with Creative Author Press (CAP) which includes an ISBN, you cannot change the pricing of the book since it has already been recorded into a global book database. If your book is not published with CAP, you will be able to change the book earnings for your published book using "Revise Book Earnings". Click on your book title and you will find it on the right panel of the page under the section "Manage".
I noticed that I have one book purchased, however on the "Earnings" section, it says 0.00. Do you know why this is?
Purchase made by the book author at the Base Price will not generate any earnings. If someone else buys the book at the List Price, then you will see earnings accrued to your account. Any purchase will be reflected only if it is completed, meaning finished.
Why Bookemon lets people read the book online? If they can read, they won't buy?
A study by MIT has confirmed that first time or unknown authors will have a much better chance to find interested buyers if they let people read their books first. If giving the public a chance to read one's book is truly detrimental to the sales of the book, then publishers would stop selling to public libraries.
