Every novel goes through a review before a contract is signed. You can check the rules for writers to get approved and all the conditions in our blog here.
Also, we have an article with detailed information on the review process.
We won’t accept such books during the review, so you can’t delete your signed novel and reapply with it to get MAB.
After you make any changes to your chapter, our editors receive an Edit request for a review. It takes up to 5 days to process the request. To avoid any inconvenience, the final word count for the day/month is counted after all changes are approved/rejected, even if the calendar month has already finished. The number of words is added to/ reduced from the date the request was made
For instance, you have noticed that your daily wordcount for October 21st is 1900 words and decided not to add a new chapter, but to add some paragraphs to the existing one. So, you created an edit request on October 21st, which was reviewed and approved on October 23rd. Consequently, your daily wordcount for October 21st increased to 2050 words and you have met the daily updates criteria.
Yes, you can edit the published chapters of your MAB book. However, to avoid any fraudulent activity connected to the content, the editing process is organized on a request basis.
✍You have 5 edit requests per month.
When you make changes to your chapters, our dedicated editors will promptly review your request within 2-5 days.
The criteria is to do daily adding in order to have readers' attention and promo for regular updates. Sure, you can upload the whole story at once, but such a book won’t be receiving the MAB.
MAB applies only to exclusively signed books that opted to participate during submission. You can’t change the type of contract to exclusive and be eligible for MAB with this book.
Monthly Attendance Bonus is $200 if all the criteria mentioned above is met.
When you have published 50,000 words or more, you’ll receive the same $200 as a fixed amount.
You should focus on meeting the 25-days of daily updates criteria, as the number of the rest days depends on the month.
It is obligatory to update the book for 25 days within a month, which means that depending on the number of days in the exact month, you would have 3 to 6 rest days.
You should add at least 2,000 words daily in order to be eligible for receiving the MAB.
As for MAB rejection or termination reasons might be as following:
- Exclusivity criteria: book is available on other platforms or published for free.
- Book was already published and removed on other platforms. For MAB we expect only brand new novels.
- Plagiarism criteria: novel is an intellectual property of other author and is not written by applying author.
- Low quality content criteria: if novel is not meeting our editorial standards, has a lot of grammatical errors, dull plot etc.We encourage you to check out our blog post for insightful tips and guidance on how to maximize your chances of approval!
Currently MAB is only available for English-written novels. You can receive MAB for one English-written book at a time.
If we see that the novel does not meet our quality standards or is plagiarised, we reject such works. Also, some applicants could be asked some additional information to complete a detailed KYC check.
We will provide you with the reason for the rejection and some suggestions for adjustment. You can also try to resubmit your novel application.

The calendar with check-in tracking will be open for your novel at the beginning of the following month and as soon as it is open, you can start adding chapters.
Monthly Attendance Bonus is available only for one of the signed novels with an exclusive contract. MAB gives you the opportunity to receive the bonus for the daily continuation of this novel.
The requirements are simple:
- you need to upload at least 2,000 words each day during 25 days in the calendar month;
- the MAB can only be received by one exclusive english-written book at a time;
- if you don’t manage to add words in the first month you can still add words daily the following 2 months, but if you don’t meet the criteria for 2 months in a row, you can’t receive the MAB for the 3rd month.
You will have access to the Daily Update Calendar, where you can monitor your publications and check-ins. The calendar shows completed days and the number of words added in each of those days. So you can easily track your progress and plan your time.
You can receive MAB for the first three months after signing the contract. We take into account calendar months and you need to add words within 25 days. If you are applying in the middle of the month, MAB will be starting from the next month. A calendar with tracking will be displayed in your writer’s account and you can add chapters from then on. If you meet the criteria of attendance and other requirements of MAB, you will receive MAB every such month. Payments will be processed on the last day of the month.
