We love books.
We love authors.

We love building the
future of publishing.

What we do

Our mission is to build a new model for publishing that puts authors first. We believe that independent authors deserve a better way to publish, so we’re creating the tools, technology, and information they need to succeed in today’s digital market. In May 2016, Pronoun joined Macmillan Publishers. Together, we are investing in growing our self-publishing platform while also bringing new technology and data to an industry leader.

Our team

We come from traditional publishing, technology, design, and data science. We work at Pronoun because we believe that technology can transform the publishing world and help books be their best, stand out, and reach more readers. We want to see more great books in the world. We’re building the platform that will make it happen.

Imprints & Partners

We publish some of our titles through Pronoun imprints. Byliner stands for edgy, smart, modern journalism from today's best writers. Paper Lantern Lit publishes Young Adult titles from outside the mainstream. Our other imprints are in partnership with the biggest names in media, from The New York Times to Gawker. And there's more to come as we incubate new imprints for other fiction and non-fiction genres.
