Pronoun was a great self publishing resource that was run by McMillan, the publishing company. It offered great terms for authors, a top notch interface, and awesome distribution. I’m sad to see it closing because it worked so well.
It came as something of a shock. The other day I logged into my email, and there it was – the notification. I definitely had a sinking feeling when seeing that. On the bright side, though, I know a lot more about eBooks than I used to.
Now I’ll have to migrate my books over to Amazon or some other service, and also do the same for my father’s stuff that we published together. I’ll now be dealing with multiple editions as well, since there will be a Pronoun edition as well as an Amazon edition. I’m sure I’ll find a way with deal with it but it’s still a big pain in the neck.
If anyone out there wants the scoop on what’s happening, here’s a link to the FAQ. Pronoun is staying open till after the holidays so authors can finish up any sales they might have going.
It’s too bad, really, and I’ll miss the service.
