  1. I’ve heard about them through a group of writers and I even have an account with them but haven’t tried them yet as I haven’t published anything since I joined. It offers writing software and distributes the book to the major players, the problem is that you have to use them to distribute everywhere, including Amazon, but they are fairly new players so not sure how people who use them find them…

  2. I’ve never heard of them either. Interesting, but I think I’ll also keep an eye on it without jumping in – I’d like a few more opinions about it before I’d consider it. Also, I like my independence, not sure I’d want to give it up.

  3. Yeah, I’m cautious about making changes, too. What caught my eye was the suggestion about using Smashwords and KDP together, so that’s what I’m looking into. Or Draft2Digital. But it also looks like you can’t do either of those if you are in KU, and that has turned out to be profitable for me. A lot to think about before I make a move. And if I DO “go wider,” it would just be with my first book, in order to funnel more readers to my series. I think. 🙂

  4. New to me Marcia. No particular interest to dive in. I can’t justify paying a middle man to distribute my books when I can do it myself. Although, if it turns out they are reputable (not just another sneaky vanity publisher), perhaps they may be helpful for new authors requiring more help in the publishing area. 🙂 Time will tell.

    • Again, what the article sparked my interest in (mainly) was combining Smashwords with KDP for more coverage. Or, as some have suggested, KDP with Draft2Digital. I’m not brave enough to try something new out right off the bat, by any means. But I’m ready to turn Wake-Robin Ridge into a funnel book for my series, so I’m permanently reducing the price soon, and thinking of widening my distribution, for that book only. At least at this time. So my original post was about Smashwords and KDP, then I thought I’d share this article on Pronoun to see if others had heard of it, yet. Will be interesting to see what it brings to our options. LOTS of options are always a good idea, in my mind. All the better to find the one best suited to your own needs. (But not without research.)

      • Thanks for explaining. I agree. For books in a series, most authors are putting the first one on perma free, and in doing so, why not share with the more the merrier when the book isn’t locked into KDP select! 🙂

  5. I know two people who use Pronoun and love them. Their books are available on Amazon, iBooks, Barnes & Noble, Kobo and Google Play. You can still have your book available on Smashwords or Draft2Digital using the sales channels not included in Pronoun’s list above. Right now they don’t take any royalties but with their purchase by MacMillan, who knows?

    • Thank you so much for the input, Liz! Good to know. It will be interesting keeping an eye on Pronoun, I think. I’ve decided to stay where I am for now, largely because I just don’t have the time to mess with making changes, but in the future, who knows? Nice to see you here today. Hope you’ll enjoy looking around the blog. 🙂
