Hello, Dear Writers 👋
We are improving the quality of content for our readers and aiming to offer a better writing experience for our authors. In order to ensure the writer’s success for every author, we are sharing the updated rules for exclusive contracts ✨
Read the rules below if you are already an exclusive author of AlphaNovel or just planning to become one 🙂 You can also find more details in the Guide for writers: How to increase your chance of approval & not get rejected.
1. Reviewing of a contract up to 2 working weeks
Over the past 2 months, the number of AlphaNovel authors has increased significantly – and it’s a blast 🔥 We are happy that you trust us and choose us to publish your novels.
In order to thoroughly check the documents and give equal attention to each contract and book, the review of contracts for exclusive books will now take up to 2 working weeks.
We ask you to pay close attention to the data you add to the contract. Provide the correct data so that our legal team could check your documents faster and there would be no need to reject your contract due to data errors.
2. Ongoing bonus >>> MAB
The ongoing bonus will no longer be available to all writers from Dec ‘22. All authors who have received confirmation for the ongoing bonus from Sep ’22 to Nov ’22 will receive their payments.
Instead, we are launching the MAB: monthly attendance bonus. Every writer will get an opportunity to track the MAB from their personal account, view the attendance calendar, and more. Additionally, we plan to suggest you even better conditions 😎
Why? Unfortunately, our team has faced cases of book plagiarism, abuse and fraud. Since AlphaNovel is strictly against plagiarism and inappropriate communication, we have revised our bonus terms. We want to be the best platform for our authors, and we take your feedback seriously in order to improve our product and operations. That is why we see the MAB as a better way to incentivize the top writers.
3. KYC and plagiarism check
We continue to work on the quality of our content and, as previously, emphasize the importance of KYC and checking books for plagiarism. It allows us to be sure that the person who uploaded the book is its legitimate author, and that no one else would be able to receive the payment.
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.
In case something is still unclear to you, we have collected all the answers here. Check the Q&A for exclusive contracts and carefully read the rules above.
