Books

On Axone a book is a story with a main character/s and a plot which the book creator has set in the book description. To quickly create a book:

  1. 1 Navigate to the header of the page
  2. 2 Click on the write button.

You can also create a book by:

  1. 1 Navigating to your studio
  2. 2 Selecting books in the left navigation
  3. 3 Click on the left green button to create a book.

Storylines

A book can have multiple storylines. Each storyline is a trajectory of a book in a different unique direction. For example, in the book Romeo and Juliet in chapter 5 the message to that Juliet wasn't not dead failed to reach Romeo in time resulting in him taking poison and dying of sorrow, thinking that Juliet was dead. In an alternative storyline from chapter 5, Romeo receives the message and avoids taking the poison leading to reconciliation between their feuding families, the Montagues and Capulets.

To create a new storyline for a book:

  1. 1 Navigate to the book's details view page
  2. 2 Click on the green button next to a chapter you want to branch from

NB: All the previous chapters including the current one will be part of the new storyline. The new chapters you create are the ones which will deviate from the parent storyline.


Chapters

A storyline is made up of multiple chapters. To add a chapter to a storyline:

  1. 1 Navigate to the book's details view page
  2. 2 Select the storyline from the top scrolling list
  3. 3 Scroll down to the chapters section and click on edit for the desired chapter

NB: If the edit selection is not available for a chapter you do not have permissions to edit the chapter. You can ask the author for permission to collaborate on the storyline.


Campaigns

An Axone campaign is a call for authors to write stories on a certain topic. For example a campaign titled "Voices of Resilience: Chronicles of African Childhood" could have the following description:

"Voices of Resilience" is a compelling campaign aimed at inspiring authors to write books that shed light on the challenging yet resilient lives of African children. This initiative seeks to raise awareness about the diverse experiences faced by children across the continent, emphasizing their strength, dreams, and the obstacles they overcome.

Authors will write books for the campaign until the campaign ending date. A campaign will usually have rewards for the best books based on a set criteria. To create a campaign:

  1. 1 Navigate to your studio
  2. 2 Select books in the left navigation
  3. 3 Click on the right green button to create a book campaign
