Pronoun is Shutting Down

One of my distributors is going out of business. Pronoun was an ebook publishing site that took submissions from authors and put them up on retail publishing sites for them. It was one of the efforts I joined in their alpha and beta phases to help them get going. The others are, OpenBooks and BitTorrent Bundles. is still going strong. The other two, while still there, have dwindled to the point that their life signs are almost undetectable.

One of the options for readers is gone. At this point I don’t know whether I will submit the books to another distributor. It’s a way to get them in front of more eyeballs, which would be good, but I don’t know if it’s worth the effort.

Farewell to Pronoun. It was a good try, but I guess it didn’t work out for them.
