At Net Minds, we are changing the way publishing makes books. (see my previous post on the startup I’ve cofounded.)
We are a networking service that partners authors with publishing talents to produce great books that are effectively promoted upon release. After publishing four books through the antequaited traditional model, I realized that there had to be a better way…The Net Minds Way.
Currently, we are working with over a dozen authors on books of all types. We’ve built up a network of free lance editors, book designers, mareketers, and publicists to work with them. Each partner gets a piece of the book’s profits as part of their comp package. We strongly believe that joint-ventures make better products … and in my experience, sharing the upside makes all the difference.
Here’s the May Net Minds list of projects, looking for partners of all types. The authors are impressive: Atari founder Nolan Bushnell, former CMO of AMD Nigel Dessau, media visionary Robert Tercek and nine others. If you know a freelancer that might be intersted, please forward this blog post to them. The deadline for responding is Thursday June 7.
