Vook believes in a better way to publish.

And more are on the way: you’ll identify, pitch, negotiate, and manage partnerships with media companies, magazines, agencies, celebrities, musicians, and other artists and content creators.
You’ll also oversee distribution deals and operating partnerships with online book retailers such as Amazon, Apple, Barnes & Noble, and Google, and evaluate new distribution and marketing opportunities for our books, authors, and partners.
