PUBLUSH is a crowd sourced content discovery and distribution platform – and a publisher with a cause.
Aspiring authors are guaranted an audience before finishing their manuscript. Plus, one book is donated for each one that’s purchased.
In a nutshell, this is how it works:
- Aspiring authors upload the best 10 pages and a summary of their book, maybe even an author video.
- Potential readers study the summary, watch the author’s video, and learn more about the book idea and view an excerpt from the book. If the book seems like something they would like to read, they can click “Support” – which is like pre-ordering the book – also readers don’t get charged unless and until the book is published.
- Once a book reaches 1,000 supporters, it will be professionally published! Meaning edited, designed, printed, marketed and distributed. As 1,000 of your peers all agree they’d like to read the book, you can rest assured it’s going to be high quality content.

Traditional publishing with its overhead costs and slow bureaucracy makes it hard for authors to get their potentially popular books published. Publush aims to help authors to get noticed, read, supported and published.
