A letter from Ash Davies, CEO

The bookselling model is broken.

Self-publishing promised so much independence to authors, but has failed to deliver. Bookstores like Amazon take a 55% commission on every sale, and share nothing about your customers. Publishers take large commissions, take forever to pay, and don't help you sell more books. The modern author earns less than 8% for their work — if they're lucky. We created to change this.
