This is an agreement between _____________________ (Author) and Indie Lector, LLC (IL) and it’s bookstore, B4R.store for the purpose of creating, selling and using an NFT from a book selected by the author.
The author gives us permission to alter the book cover to create NFT this includes making a cover into GIF animation, moveable art, or other electronic forms that make the cover more unique and valuable.
The author has final approval of the finished artwork. The author has 48 hours to approve or reject artwork, and to provide a list of changes, alterations, etc., to IL. If no changes, alterations, etc., are provided within 48 hours, IL will assume the author has approved the artwork and will move forward with the creation of the NFT.
Once approved the author permits us to sell the NFT in the quantity that the author has approved at the price the author has agreed to. The author understands that the original US$ price may not be the same at the time of the actual sale of the NFT due to market valuation at the time of sale.
The NFT product that has met all qualifications as listed above is available for sale for a minimum of one calendar year, broken down to two six-month periods, or until quantities have sold out.
The Author agrees to work with Indie Lector to determine the original price of NFT based on the US dollar value. Once the price is set, the author understands that the cryptocurrency selected for the purchase of the NFT may change in value positively or negatively and agrees to accept those changes that the free market has determined. The author further agrees to not hold Indie Lector liable, or responsible in any way for those market changes.

The author must notify Indie Lector, thirty (30) days prior to the end of the calendar year to terminate the contract. If the author fails to notify Indie Lector to cancel the contract, the contract will continue for another calendar year, and so on. The cancellation of the contract only pertains to the original sale of the NFT, and not to the resale of previously sold NFTS. A contract for resale of NFTs and the appropriate commissions remains in effect for eternity, or until such time as NFTs are no longer sold, resold, or exchanged in any format.
