Vook Is Live

Posted on by Matthew Cavnar

Today we opened Vook to the world, enabling anyone who visits our site to access our platform and create great looking eBooks, distribute them to the major marketplaces, and track their sales.

Vook’s the product of heroic work from our design and engineering teams and voluminous and insightful input from hundreds of closed beta-users, whose feedback helped make the platform what it is today.

Here’s a roundup of what the press has been saying:

Publishers Weekly’s Craig Teicher:  ”. . . could indeed be a game-changer.”

Digital Book World’s Jeremy Greenfield:   “Call it iBooks Author without the marriage to Apple.”

Next Web’s Anna Heim: “Could Vook (and similar ventures) be about to disrupt an entire industry?”

Betabeat’s Jessica Roy: ”We find this act incredibly noble.”

TeleRead’s Paul Biba also recapped the launch.

We’ll have more updates on what we’re doing and the response from our users. And go try Vook for yourself. We want to know what you think! You can write Matthew@vook.com. I’m standing by.
