Voice Verso Private Beta Launch

Voice Verso Stats
Here’s Voice Verso, so far!

The Launch

On 31st July 2016 around 12pm(IST), Voice Verso released its private beta for  its privilege authors who would love to try the revolutionary DIY(Do it Yourself) book writing and publishing tool. To our overwhelming disbelief, around 25 authors signed up in just 24 hours of the release, to prove us that we are on a right track.
Since, then we are growing with a moderate speed of eminent writers, with the tally reaching up to 75 authors.
The Daily Active Writers(DAW) which is one of the key metrics to our growth is around 45 and we intent to increase that more and more.
After 1 month of our launch(i.e. – 31st August 2016), we released a new feature, wherein photographers, fashion blogger, visual storytellers, etc. can create their visual anthologies and portfolios using our revolutionary page by page image uploading option.

The Product

Voice Verso is first of its kind DIY(Do it Yourself) book writing, publishing and selling too. It is an end to end solution for budding authors to turn out to be best-selling authors. The product have been designed keeping in mind the craftsmanship of artists, poets, storytellers etc. to create their book page by page using our propitiatory “Drag and Drop book turning and 3D book modeling tool”. This way the writers fell as if they are writing and creating their own book, thereby making us a truly indie publishing platform. It takes out the boring cluttered manuscript and age-old Microsoft Word writing practices and gives a feel to the authors as if they are truly interacting with their content.

What we intend to do?

Our future goals is to make every budding author, who ever have dreamed of publishing their books; a best seller. Our goal for coming 6 months is to publish the books of 100+ authors and make them sell it online. With the positive acceptance of the ecosystem all around, I see that we will hit our benchmark real soon.  There are 120 million authors that goes unnoticed every year. Even, J K Rowling rejected 20 times, only to get her first Harry Potter . We want to cut this lag time for authors, so that they accelerate the book publishing process faster and better.

6) In line book editing

You can select editors for per page or multiple pages editing  as in when you need to do so. Your DIY book will be co shared with the editor of your choice and then you can give them privileges to edit your book. Furthermore, you can keep tabs of the editing  first hand. This avoids hassle and communication lags between authors and editors.

7) No Cash upfront

Remember at point 3, I told you that you can publish both eBooks and Paperbacks free? Yes, you heard it right. We at Voice Verso, understand that, authors may not have enough economics to support their book publishing, editing , marketing and selling endeavors. So, we do not demand any cash. However, for using premium services we demand meager royalty ranging from 0% to 50%. Wait, did I just say – “0%”? Yes, you heard it right, there is a plan in the tool(which is least) which helps authors to publish and sell their books by keeping up 100% royalty. How cool is that?

8) Book Publishing houses aggregation

This is our futuristic attempt. We are in talks with some good old and famous traditional publishing houses to collaborate with us. Using our tool, if your book performs real well or you become our premium author, you will get a chance to choose your favorite book publishing house with your negotiable royalties and you can publish your book with them too. Told you, truly a best-selling deal here!

Conclusion

Voice Verso is making an end to end all round authors and readers marketplace. With our refined iterations with tech, we want to offer best possible book writing, publishing, editing, marketing and selling experience to our authors. We are hopeful to serve the author community in best of their interests. Keeping that in mind , we have kept the platform an “invite only” deal. Meaning, only privilege writers, poets, authors etc. who are serious enough to publish their books can try and receive the fruits of our tech. We are adamant to do so, to keep up content and publishing quality. However, we are excited to make platform live for all very soon.

“Looking forward to produce best sellers”

Top 10 ways to find out if you are a great Storyteller!

1) You observe stuffs very closely

You have this uncanny ability to think beyond the approach of a normal human being. You tend to see what others can’t. This basically makes you become a Sherlock of imagination per se.  This gives an edge over others in practicing the art of story telling.

Observe

2) You always see stuffs in a words way!

You observe images around you, the life, the ecosystem etc. so that you can bring out a context to it. You just don’t observe things, but you try to figure out how to articulate it into a worded essay/poem or something. This gives you a notion of writing something as a storyteller.

Life

3) Connect the dots

You are one such person, who always take small ingredients from life, a little from here, a little from there and then you make it yours. That’s basically, not just applicable to the art of storytelling, but your whole life as well.  You try to connect what you saw and then you perceive onto it.

Connecting the dots

4) You always maintains a blog

With the storytelling qualities blended with technology these days, it becomes a mandatory approach for you to maintain a blog of yours. However, sometimes blogging requires a lot of time and you sometimes ditch writing on it on regular basis.

Blog

5) You jot down thoughts

For a person like you, you always have a pen and notebook handy. You have this tendency of writing down your thoughts every now and then, in whatever way you observes life.

Thoughts

6) You like to face the audience

Stage fright? What’s that? – This is the attitude you have. You can face and share your views without any problem. People enjoy your confidence when you do so.  With your successful portrayal and story telling quality you just rock and enthrall the audiences always.

No Stage fright

 

7) You dwell on ideas(read that as opportunities) more then problems

You tend to find opportunities on every problem thrown at you. You just have this constant  and innate drive in you to perceive something unthinkable. With that attitude you tend to state your story with utmost passion and confidence.

Opportunity

8) You work really hard to create your first draft

They always says this  in terms of writing “The first draft is always special and tough one”.  So, you constantly are upset dissatisfied and unfulfilled with your first draft.  That always gives you a sincere tenacity to keep looking for better. Further, until you are not satisfied with your first draft, you tend to constantly go through it.

Story telling

9) You are proactive, yet you love solitary

You have this unmatched and confused ambient kind of personality. It is self delusional, but it is something which you always foster upon. You and your stories always like to be alone though!

Ambivert

10) You might have a dream to publish your own book, someday

Well, if you possess all the above traits of a good story-teller, then what makes you a great storyteller? Quite frankly, there is no standard barrier. But, in order to go about a purpose of your writing, you might consider a choice of publishing your own book.
