Motion Books push the boundaries of storytelling to the extreme, turning the act and art of reading into something that extends well beyond the printed page. Madefire's powerful and adaptable Motion Book Tool is now in your hands, allowing you to create expressive stories where audio and visual artistry collide.
The Motion Book is an adventurous, energy-packed medium that empowers creators to reach for worlds unseen. When you submit your Motion Books to deviantART and share them with the world, they'll be showcased alongside some of the comic industry's greatest creators and publishers, right alongside characters like Batman, Optimus Prime, Rainbow Dash, and Hellboy!
Professional-grade, yet flexible, the Madefire Motion Book Tool can be used to create the familiar page-by-page reading experience you know and love, while also being versatile and powerful enough to create the high-impact Motion Book environment being embraced by major companies such as DC, IDW, and Dark Horse Comics.
With the Motion Book Tool and its built-in distribution and reader-tool functions, you are the publisher of your own work. Sell your Motion Books on deviantART and expand your horizons, generating profit for your hard work while building your audience, bringing more readers into your creative space with no up-front costs.
You choose the distribution of your Motion Books:
in which case there is absolutely no charge for the use of the Tool or for the distribution of the Motion Book through deviantART or Madefire's mobile platforms.
in which you elect to sell your Motion Books on deviantART and on Madefire's mobile platforms. You can set your own price and receive 60% of every sale. You can use the Motion Book Tool as much as you want with free access, but if and when you decide to start making money with your Motion Books, a reasonable fee goes back to the Tool maker and distributors. You only bear a cost when you make a profit.
DeviantART's new Bookshelf feature is a place to keep your Motion Books and everything else, holding all digital content purchases you've made on deviantART and making it simple to rediscover your content. Access your Bookshelf from the Shop menu and view your favorite digital content. Stay tuned for more!
