My e-book publisher is going out of business

When I published my first novel in September, I used the services of Pronoun Publishing. The experience was awesome. Pronoun converted my manuscript seamlessly into a high-quality e-book, and they handled the distribution to pretty much every e-book platform around the world.

Pronoun also took care of sales, and sent me weekly reports. And the entire service was free of charge. (The only drawback was that Pronoun handled only e-books. I had to care of the print version myself.)

Some people in and around the indie author’s world were suspicious of Pronoun, saying it was too good to be true. Sadly, it turns out they were right. Pronoun recently announced that their business model is unsustainable, they will be closing up shop, and all the books they have published, including Last Call at the Ringrose Pub, will be taken off the market as of January 15, 2018.

So, regretfully, I’m in the process of looking at other options. And sometime in the next six seeks, I will be moving Ringrose over to different distributors. The book will probably be off the market for a brief period while this transition is happening. I’ll let you know.

Update (July 29, 2018) After a brief period listing the book on many platforms using a different distributor, I have recently republished the book exclusively on Amazon. It is now available to subscribers to Kindle Unlimited.
