Ontario-based Colborne Communications is parting ways with Pubslush and announcing the start of a new venture called PubLaunch, kicking off on February 1, 2016. PubLaunch is a web-based company that connects trusted industry professionals with writers while providing the crowdfunding services they need to get their projects published.
Colborne Communications announced its acquisition of Pubslush in August. Unfortunately, the deal did not come to fruition and Pubslush has announced that it will be closing its doors after a three-year run as the only crowdfunding site of its kind.
“Our commitment remains unwavering to the authors and publishers who were looking to Pubslush for help on their journeys. We are putting that commitment into action with PubLaunch,” says Greg Ioannou, president of Colborne Communications.
PubLaunch will be the new home for the book world, connecting readers, writers and trusted industry professionals. Using a step-by-step process that guides writers through each stage of publication (from first draft to published book), PubLaunch will unify the multiple people involved in creating a book through one single process, solving a long-standing problem in the publishing industry.
PubLaunch is counting down the days until February 1 on its landing page, where it has outlined the services it will offer to each segment of the publishing industry.
