For sale:

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.

why would i use this over booksmart or bookwright? they allow me to sell on kindle and hardcovers as well as their site and i get 100% of the money

i think people are looking over the fact that this is just terrible. 60% goes to them wow ok if that much goes to them i wouldn't like to know what else goes to them. if you want motion books it'd probably be best to make a basic program yourself unless you want to sell books for $12 just to get $5

was going to use it for books but 60% is to much surprised people are even using it to be honest could do the same in flash probably just as well if not better

The author receives 60%, not the company. "You can set your own price and receive 60% of every sale."

MissFelixia Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
oh well thats still 40% which is just as bad $10 to get $6

so if you used this you sell a book for $10 to get $6 or  booksmart and you can sell your book for $6 to get $6 :) considering the difficulty of publishing and everything the high takaway here is more likely to push new people away or make less sales for them ect ect

motion books don't really interest me much i suppose they could be like movies or something or green eggs and ham but otherwise i want a book in my hand lol. kindle is a little anoying dont get how people can read books on a device a book is about holding it and reading. in a post apocalyptic world where technology dies a paperbook will survive :p any books you do with this though may as well be free.

Can you tell me how much does DA get with the sale of the motion book? For example, if someone prices it at $10 per book what would be DA's share?

I actually have this app on my computer. It came with Transformers: Punishment. I really like it. The transition from panel to panel evokes movement. It also plays music and sound effects according to what's going on. =D
