Draft2Digital sees a “very large spike” as Pronoun authors migrate
“The not altogether unexpected failure of the US-based distributor Pronoun dealt competitor aggregators an unexpected windfall this month
StreetLib and PublishDrive both rushed to produce migration tools that could with virtually one click transfer an author’s Pronoun files across and get them up and running again.
Both PublishDrive and StreetLib offer Amazon and Google Play as options – something absent from the distribution portfolio of either Smashwords or Draft2Digital at the time.
But in the most remarkable of coincidences Draft2Digital had quietly been beavering away at a deal with Amazon for much of this year and it all came to fruition the day after Pronoun closed.
And now Draft2Digital is having to deal with the rush.”
