Press Release: Pronoun Launches New Free Publishing Platform for Authors
NEW YORK, NY - May 19, 2015 - Today Pronoun announces the formation of a new author-friendly platform for book publishing. Pronoun brings together Vook, the leading digital book creation and distribution platform; Booklr, the industry's largest proprietary data and analytics engine; and Byliner, a digital-first imprint that publishes bestselling contemporary authors. With this combined technology and experience, Pronoun rethinks what publishing should offer authors. Pronoun empowers every author to create and distribute beautiful digital books, own and control their work and their rights, and receive 100% of their earnings - all for free.
"Pronoun is committed to changing the publishing model by making it open, and by making it free," said Josh Brody, Chief Executive Officer, Pronoun. "The book publishing industry's structure pre-dates electricity. Authors seek a viable alternative - both to legacy publishing, with its exclusivity and restrictions, and to self-publishing, with its complexity, limitations, and high costs. Pronoun starts with the author at its core, and builds from there."
