Partnership Announcement: Publica ‘Publishes Your Way’ with Morgan James Publishing
08/14/2018 — Publica announced a major new partnership with Morgan James Publishing, an American independent book publisher and distributor.
Publishers Weekly listed the publishing house as one of the fastest-growing independent publishers of 2014, 2015 and 2018.
Publica and Morgan James have an author in common, The New York Times #1 bestseller Joel Comm. He recounts that “When I met Publica’s people for our own Bad Crypto podcast, introducing them to my publisher was a no-brainer.”
“Publica’s blockchain-for-books strategy needs best-in-class solutions for paper editions and that means support for bookstores and the way they want to work,” said CEO Josef Marc. “Both companies are extremely author-centric. Morgan James offers the best combination of traditional bookstore salesforce and entrepreneurial business models that we could imagine. Looking deeper we learned why Fast Company’s Fast 50 list praises MJP for their rapid innovations in the last ten years. Our partnership also has something new and exciting in the works and that gives us common cause to innovate together.”
“Publica is rapidly fulfilling its promise and Morgan James is the first major partner on our roadmap,” according to Publica’s COO Antons Sapriko. “We’re already importing MJP’s book catalog and integrating our systems on a deep technical level. We’re impressed by their enthusiasm for blockchain and cryptocurrency, and especially their support led by Bethany.” [Marshall, Morgan James Publishing Director.]
Morgan James founder David Hancock said this about the Publica announcement: “I challenge other publishers to ponder the possible impact that blockchain technology may bring to our industry, and plan for the future of the publishing economy.”
Publica.com is an evolutionary publishing platform using blockchain and cryptocurrency technology to innovate in how books are funded, distributed, bought, and read. Publica’s blockchain technology makes it easier for authors to pre-sell or raise funding for their books, choose their own business model, keep their creative freedom, and their direct-selling revenue. Publica introduced its e-reader app in May at London Book Fair and became the first company to tokenize books on the blockchain. Publica was community-funded in November 2017.
