"The democratization of Publishing"


As writers, we pour blood, sweat, and tears into executing themes, plots, characters, and stories which we hope can entertain, engage, or improve the world in some measurable way, but if your name is not "King", "Patterson", of "Grisham" you are one of millions each year who complete your work of fiction in total silence, no fanfare, no royalty advancements, no agents pounding at your door to negotiate deals for you. Amazon and publishing on-demand has helped bridge the gap, but on Web2 your phenomenal book still lingers in obscurity -- is still subject to the  horrifying amount of time and marketing efforts you can generate among your private fanbase - your personal "Followers". Nearly all authors are still subject to the vagaries of "Gatekeepers" and their opinions about the coming market trends.

     Blockchain technology, Web 3, and allows us the opportunity to bypass the "gatekeepers". It gives all of us a chance to support and invest in the authors and work we, as a community, democratically decide are most ready for wide publication. Web3 and blockchain technology, still in its infancy, offers unique opportunities for us to gather and promote Authors and Readers as a collective devoted to publications of substantive value.
