Since announcing our plans for PubLaunch on October 6 we've had a lot of activity in a short amount of time. In the span of just 10 days, we've registered roughly 170 users. They are editors, marketers and publicists, publishing consultants, illustrators and designers, publishers, and writers. We're thrilled that so many people are as excited about PubLaunch as we are.

We're especially delighted to bring together a diverse group of forward thinking publishers with unique models. Some of these will include BookBaby, JETLAUNCH, BookLogix, and EMRE Publishing.
