Pronoun shocked the publishing world on Monday when it announced that it will be shutting its doors in January and will no longer be accepting new book submissions for publication. This news comes roughly a month after I had “gone wide” with my books, using Pronoun to publish them on such outlets as Nook, Kobo, iBooks and Google Play.
So that’s less than ideal.
As a result, I have removed my books — Bounty, Blood Ties, Behind the Badge, and Notna — from Pronoun, which means in the coming days, those books will no longer be available for purchase through those outlets.
These books are still available on Amazon for Kindle and paperback readers.
I’m in the process of uploading my books to Draft2Digital, an outlet similar to Pronoun that will again allow my work to be available to ebook readers who do not use a Kindle or the Kindle app. As of this writing, D2D does not feature Google Play, but it’s their hope (and mine) that changes in the coming months.
Pronoun’s abrupt demise is demoralizing for a lot of authors, but D2D looks to be as easy-to-use, and I’m eager to again ensure that my work is available to as many potential readers as possible. Kindle is still the bulk of my sales (if one takes out the in-person sales I rake in at conventions and other such events), but it’s nice to be able to give readers options.
Once my books are again available in other formats, I will let you all know.
My latest release, Notna, is available in paperback as well as Kindle. Check out Notna on Amazon.
