Pronoun Launches a Blog – The Verbs

The self-pub platform Pronoun has just launched its first new initiative since being acquired by Macmillan in May 2016. Earlier this week Pronoun announced that it had launched a blog called The Verbs (it was actually about a week old by the time the news crossed my desk).

Pronoun describes their blog as a “new home for serious indie publishing know-how and light-hearted writerly fun – created by authors, for authors”.

The blog will cover topics like:

  • When to time your holiday release
  • the basics of newsletters
  • How to throw a Facebook party for your book
  • The essentials of creating great end matter
  • Writers and their foibles

The blog is live now, and you can find it at (here’s the RSS feed).

Pronoun’s future plans include a marketing service, which will be called Adjective, and a sales newsletter called Adverb.

    They should rename themselves “Past Tense”… 😀

      No, that’s the name of their analytics service.

    I really would have expected the blog to be called The Articles.
