You can start by exploring and purchasing books from our platform, spreading the word about Melanin Pages to your friends and networks, and engaging with our content on social media. Your support helps us grow and create a more diverse and inclusive literary landscape.

A: While we strive to provide a variety of books for readers of all ages, it’s important to note that some genres may contain mature content. We recommend parents and guardians exercise discretion and review book descriptions to ensure suitability for younger readers. We also have specific genres, such as Erotica, that are strictly for individuals aged 18 and above.

A: Yes, you have the option to submit up to 2 books at a time for consideration on Melanin Pages. However, please note that there is an additional fee of $2.50 per additional book submitted. This fee will be added to your subscription fee. Submitting multiple books allows you to showcase a broader range of your work and increase your visibility within the Melanin Pages community.

A. The decision to not display prices for books on the website is intentional and serves multiple purposes. Melanin Pages aims to empower authors by directing traffic to their individual platforms, allowing them to retain a larger portion of their book sales revenue. By not providing the price upfront, it encourages visitors to click on the books and explore further, gaining exposure to other products available for sale on their site. This approach also helps increase the algorithmic visibility of the author’s platform, as it allows the internet to identify and prioritize content based on demand and popularity. Ultimately, this strategy benefits both authors and readers, fostering a more dynamic and engaging experience within the Melanin Pages community.
