Contract with Webnovel, nurture your dreams of being an author!
Authors sign a royalty contract with Webnovel. Authors will share the revenue earned from subscriptions on the website, direct sales from other platforms, and other monetization of the copyright. With the advantage of a continual stream of revenue, the standard royalty sharing is also the best choice to ensure an author’s long-term earnings.

We understand that an excellent author isn’t created in a day. Before many of China Literature’s platinum authors created their popular works, they were once in an exploratory phase. China Literature deeply understands the predicament that new authors face. In 2015, China Literature established a Contracted Works Guarantee System that saved the dreams of many aspiring authors. If a contracted author meets the stipulated conditions below, they will be given a cash reward directly! It will ensure a financial guarantee for your dream as a writer. Regardless of your results, you will obtain a basic income. Paying for your development is the underlying core of guaranteeing your continual creation of content.
We will ensure that every royalty-contracted work that goes Premium in the first four months will receive at least US$400/month if the revenue you earn is less than US$400/month.
Note: Requirement of releasing 120,000 words of content every month
Apart from creating new works on Webnovel, we also welcome authors to post their past works on the Webnovel platform! More people will notice and enjoy your works here! Authors with excellent completed works will be given priority for contracts.
