About Us
We believe every author should have an equal opportunity to succeed. 
Therefore, our mission is to discover hidden talents and turn them into globally successful authors.

We are a pioneer at the forefront of Data Driven Publishing. We have forever changed the traditional publishing model by inventing an algorithm which analyzes users’ reading behavior to identify hits, in turn removing subjectivity from the equation. This gives us the unique ability to discover hidden talents that might otherwise have gone unnoticed.

At present, we are an international team of 85 passionate and dedicated inventors and entrepreneurs and we are growing quickly. We invent new solutions to problems we encounter, as opposed to simply iterating upon existing solutions. 

Are you a builder? Are you looking for more than just innovating? We are looking for the changemakers of the world; the people who just build the solution anytime they are unsatisfied with the status quo. 

Be a part of the revolution to develop new ways of distributing our audiobooks, creating games, and video series!

Come build the Disney of the 21st Century with us!
