Digital book publishing platform Pronoun announced today that its service is now open to all authors.
Since Pronoun opened its waitlist three months ago, 8,000 authors have signed up for early access, creating more than 1,000 books on the platform. In December 2015 alone, Pronoun authors published 140 books across all major digital retailers, including Amazon, Apple and Barnes & Noble.
“We believe our early success reflects the publishing market’s need for a smarter and more efficient model that puts authors first,” said CEO Josh Brody. “While our platform is still in its early stages, we’re seeing so much demand that we’ve decided to give every author access to Pronoun’s ebook creation, distribution, analytics, and marketing tools.”
Pronoun was announced in May 2015 as the new name for the ebook distributor Vook. The following month, the company received $3.5 million in funding, and in September announced the platform’s launch.
“We talk to our early access authors every day. They’re vocal about what they want and where the current publishing industry fails to support them,” said Chief Product Officer Ben Zhuk. “To serve the thousands of authors joining every month, we’re focused on listening to their feedback and building a publishing experience unlike anything in the industry.”
Pronoun is a digital publishing platform that allows authors to create, own and control their work as well as all rights and receive 100 percent of their earnings.
