Ricardo Fayet co-founded Reedsy to bring indie publishers to the same quality of talent that traditional publishing had access to all along. Their marketplace connects content creators to editors, designers, publicists, marketers, ghost writers, and web designers in an easy-to-use, friendly, professional setting.
Ricardo’s fantastic beard makes Rekka feel like the odd-one-out.
One of the common questions writers have is how to find qualified professionals to help them take their completed MS through all stages of production (and beyond). Reedsy has a community of vetted professionals whose profile of work is available to review and compare on the marketplace, and a user can keep a rotation of up to 5 professionals for each project brief, select their best match, and use Reedsy’s platform for a smooth, professional experience backed by Reedsy’s customer support team.
Reedsy launched in 2014 and worked on building up the professionals for their marketplace before inviting writers to come submit their project briefs. Since then, over 3,000 books have been successfully completed and taken to market.
Reedsy has continued to expand their services, including blog articles which cover frequently asked-about topics, and over thirty email learning courses to get you up to speed on the different steps involved with book writing, editing, publishing, or marketing.
Competing with Draft2Digital and Vellum, Reedsy has a browser-based book editor to quickly create clean, professional layouts for digital and print books.
