How to add co-authors to books I create? How do I assign co-authors to edit chapters?

Adding co-authors allows them to view your book and receive royalties for the book's sales. You can also assign Co-Authors to specific chapters to give them editing rights to those chapters.

To add co-authors permission to view your work and receive royalties:

    1. From the "My Library" tab, select your editable book, which can be found under “All Materials”, “All Books”, or the “Original Books” tab on the left-hand side panel. Click the book cover to open your book for editing.

    2. Scroll to the “Co-Authors Information” block.

    3. Click the settings icon on the right side .

    4. Click “Add New Co-Author.”

    5. Insert the co-author’s name, email, and personal description (optional). You will also have the option to make the co-author’s name visible on the front of the book or hidden with the "Visibility" option. Finally, you can set the royalty percentage of the total author royalties that you want to share with the co-author for their contribution.

    6. When you are finished adding the co-author information, click “SAVE”.

After adding your co-authors, you can assign them to specific chapters to give them editing rights.  You can assign them in the "Front of Book" tab as well as in the "Chapters" tab. To assign co-authors editing rights:
