Wow have you even met me because I have no idea what gave you that impression, was it something I said? Well I am honoured that this blog has 154 followers (why are you all so obsessed with me), but this isn’t actually my blog, this is just for purposes of publicizing the theme on this blog (which you can download here). People tell me they have nothing to be grateful for, I reply to them you are alive, you can walk, you can talk, you can see, you can smell, you can touch, you can read, you can write, you have water for free to drink and wash your clothes and wash yourself. If you use this step correctly it is a great exercise of how to apply the law of attraction. Everything is created by you and you can change everything you create, but please everyone be grateful it is free and easy. Josh Brody, CEO of Pronoun (ex-Vook), outlines his company’s aims in refashioning itself as an author-first digital publishing and distribution platform.
As other creative markets become increasingly democratized on the backs of new technologies (think YouTube and iTunes), publishing has been stuck in the same model from the 1800s. There’s a new way to “win” in digital book publishing, but as an industry we’re going to have to work together to change the perception of what the path to that ultimate goal looks like. At its worst, self-publishing is rife with costly, bewildering services offering false promises, prompting legal action from the authors they purport to serve. Pronoun was founded on the belief that technology can power the most successful digital book publishing model for the future, one that is beyond the existing frameworks of “traditional publishing” and “self-publishing.” We think the way to shift the paradigm is to put authors first, and we do that by leveraging technology to offer valuable services at no cost to authors. Technology can drastically reduce the cost and time it takes to create and distribute a book.
So yes, technology can accomplish amazing things, but what’s even more exciting is the business model that technology engenders.


We believe that by making publishing free, we’ll create a fairer market for millions of authors. An author should never have to pay to create or distribute their book, and they shouldn’t have to pay to understand what’s happening with their book in terms of its performance in the marketplace. About the AuthorGuest ContributorGuest contributors to Publishing Perspectives have diverse backgrounds in publishing, media and technology. This step raises your vibration and brings you into harmony with the energy of the universe. As soon as you use the power of gratitude correctly things will fall into place and your life will improve.
Yet despite unflagging dedication to their craft and their readers, authors often – if not always – end up with the short straw in a draw. When publishers fully control the marketing of a book, for example, authors don’t learn how to directly reach readers. At its best, honest ebook conversion and distribution companies mean well – but when they charge fees for creating and distributing books that in many cases don’t earn profits, the focus ends up being on making money from authors, not making money for them. For example, software can can efficiently convert manuscripts to high-quality digital books that work on every device.
At Pronoun, we are developing a platform that draws on these technology benefits to make publishing not only completely open, but also free.
When that happens, opportunities to build additional valuable services that grow our business will emerge. You probably have food to eat, you have stores that bring food in daily and are easily available, you have transport, you have great nature.
On the other hand complaining attracts more to complain about, I used to work in a place with lots of negative people and they always complained, I had to balance my energy around these people which I called my emotional plaques. It is considered like winning the lottery, except it’s a lottery that takes away from what got the author there in the first place – creative, artistic, and financial control.


In giving up their authority, they put themselves in a precarious position: if (and usually when) the publisher gives up on them, their story is over. And yes, self-publishing has benefitted from recent advances in technology for creating, distributing, and reading books. Digital distribution can reach millions of potential readers instantly, and data-driven digital tools can help authors better understand and reach their readers. By using technology to automate ebook creation, distribution, and title-specific market analysis, we can give authors greater control over their work, and also enable them to keep 100% of their earnings. For example, down the road, Pronoun might help authors build and curate reader communities, manage social media, secure speaking engagements, sell movie rights, get print deals…there are lots of possibilities, and we trust our authors to tell us what they most want, need, and are willing to pay for.
And they should not have to cede control of their publishing rights to a corporation whose infrastructure and business model was developed before the advent of the internet.
You can not gain more health, wealth, success if you lack gratitude for what you already have.
Today, though, our priority is making our core services the best they can be, and they will always be free.
We can create a more favorable market for authors, and this new way of publishing has the potential to create a business model that’s more favorable for everyone. They miss the fact that you need to be grateful in order to attract more stuff to be grateful for.
So remember you become what you think, so be careful what you think as it shapes into reality. I would have been able to tell you how much they’d clash with my sweater and prevent you from buying them in the first place, and also, who wears leg warmers in August?
