You could upload 10k words of your story directly on the platform and apply for the Exclusive contract. Each book should go through the review process.

We provide every author with the feedback, so the reject reason is defined in a note that is visible in the email or on your writer’s account.
If you can fix the issue, there is a huge chance that the Exclusive contract will be approved after reapplying.
If you don’t want to continue the signing process, you could request to delete the book directly via the platform.
The cover has to be attractive as it helps readers visually define whether they want to read the novel or not. Covers that do not contain such info as the book’s title and author’s name wouldn’t be approved. The quality of the background image, font style, and color also matters.
We have created a guide with tips that will help you to make your book cover an eye candy:
As a platform, we want to provide our readers with quality content and our authors with great opportunities. Our editing team checks carefully if the book cover, annotation, and chapters meet our requirements. The Exclusive book could be rejected if it contains:
- Prohibited content
- Grammar mistakes
- Incorrect writer details
- Poor editing
- Already published
- Inappropriate annotation
- Low-quality book cover
We also provide the Compliance (KYC) check of the author’s data to make sure that our cooperation is legit and transparent.Here you can find more detailed information - Contract Review: Understanding the Process of Reviewing Books
KYC means Know Your Customer and sometimes Know Your Client. KYC or KYC check is the mandatory process of identifying and verifying the client’s identity when opening an account and periodically over time. In other words, banks must make sure that their clients are genuinely who they claim to be.
KYC verification is a mandatory procedure for identifying a person. We do this check in order to protect the platform (authors and readers) from possible fraudulent activities. This check includes all identification procedures (passport data and other data that we request at the stage of applying for a contract), as well as their analysis. That is why it is important that you provide your correct data in order to pass the review.
No, such applications will be rejected. Using not your legal name blocks the ability to provide the KYC check and affects the agreement’s effectiveness.
You need to fill in such gaps during Account Verification:
- Name: your full legal first and last name which could be proved by your ID;
- Passport: your ID/Passport number;
- Email: email to which you have access as it is a necessary part of the contract’s signing;
- Citizenship: the name of the country whose resident you are;
- Address: your legal address of registration.
