Wordeee is a new kind of publishing company and community for writers who struggle to get their ideas and words heard.
You know it in your heart.
You feel it in your bones.
You’re a writer.
And, there’s the rub.
Being a writer isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
You know you could impact the world...educating, entertaining, and compelling your readers...and making a real difference with your words.
But first, you have to breakthrough.
And if you’ve tried that before, odds are you have a horror story...or six.
In a world where it takes a lot more than talent to get that big break, the sad reality? Most talented authors are never discovered.
Perhaps you’re one of them.
If so, have you met Wordeee?
Wordeee is a new kind of publishing platform, helping the world’s next great authors meet their full potential.
Thanks to a combination of big publishing expertise, cutting-edge, collaborative technology, and unlimited support and guidance, Wordeee transforms talented writers into known authors.
Your book. Published.
Your talent. Recognized.
Your dream. Fulfilled.
As a publishing company, we set high standards for the books we select to publish. We have to be picky because, as a boutique, publisher providing bespoke support to each of our authors, we only have the capacity to select 20-25 manuscripts to publish each year. The authors we choose show talent in their writing. They’re coachable and willing to take criticism from our team of seasoned editors and coaches to turn their manuscript into a thing of magic. They are willing to do whatever it takes to bring the absolute best representation of their work into the world. Our authors are talented, scrappy, determined, and open. But what makes the experience of working with Wordeee so different is how we support our authors. Even the ones we don’t select to publish.
You have an incredible idea.
A breath-taking story…
A world-changing perspective…
Believe it deserves to be heard.
Considered the self-publishing route.
Tried to get a book traditionally published. Whew! You know the journey ahead. It’s never as easy as they make it sound.
You can try to get an agent...and if you get anything less than a dozen rejections, consider yourself lucky.
YET, YOU KNOW WRITING IS YOUR SUPERPOWER.
The word is the word, and though it may begin on the page, it can be transformed into any form:
Book >> movies >> Theater >> film >> Music and many other properties
Why not your work?
Absolutely. But the work you submit to Wordeee must be free and unencumbered, that is, it must not be signed to any other publisher or under contract with an agent unless you terminate such a contract.
Simple: bad books are bad for the world.
The adage says, do what you love! We love authors and artists and the people who appreciate them.
As authors ourselves…we know how scary, lonely, and confidence-shaking the road to becoming an author of note can be. From writer’s block to the unknowns, myths, and misconceptions of the publishing world (not to mention the fear of rejection that creeps in all along the way), this journey isn’t for the faint of heart.
Ever since the world of big publishing has lost its relevance and vitality, there's been a lot of noise and confusion in the industry, and the voices that matter most are being crowded out. Independently published books are growing and so is the proliferation of really bad books. A growing non-traditional publishing market is a statement that change is needed and that authors need new quality options, especially in the ever-evolving digital and social media age.
The founders of Wordeee themselves are authors, readers, bookstore owners, television personalities, filmmakers, traditional publishing professionals, and technologists — so yes, they are artists too! We have a panoramic view of the world of words from its beginning to its end and through its transformation. Wordeee is about redefining the future of book publishing on the notion that the ever-enlarging digital playground and global economy offers new, exciting opportunities for authors and readers.
Wordeee founders know that ideas are the easy part of any project. We not only stand behind our big idea with actionable steps but we are ready and committed to the success of our authors on our game-changing book ecosystem. You’ve made an empowered decision to support yourself as you navigate this path and we are here to help.
In a future that is all about user-generated storytelling and content, Wordeee's open-ended system harnesses the power of the latest technologies to level the playing field for authors and artists to be promoted beyond their usual borders.
Imagine, just imagine with us, one place where the world of words comes together for true connections, cultural exchanges, communication, and most of all to make words fun once again. Wordeee’s goals are to revitalize, socialize, and revolutionize the world of books, over multi-platforms. Another goal is to ensure that one of the most important life skills, literacy, continues to excite consumers. Our mission is to hold your space until you feel ready to fly…and to support you along the journey in every way.
Wordeee means electronic, entertainment, and engagement with words. The "eee" in Wordeee is the backronym for electronic entertainment and engagement. Remember, in the beginning, there was the word. We do not discriminate on word formats; we treat the world of words in all its forms of entertainment. The world to us is in the word.
Yes, we do, and anyone can be a Wordeee Ambassador. When someone signs up on the platform, they will get a unique code in their welcome e-mail which is forever linked to their account. They are encouraged to share this code with like-minded people looking to become authors. If someone they share the code publishes with Wordeee, they will get a referral fee of $100.
You own the copyright to all your works. Wordeee will publish your book, assign an ISBN and LCC number to all formats we publish — trade, hardcover, audio, or e-book.
Wordeee’s professional team will design and make the final decision on your book, however, with regards to cover design, layout, etc. Wordeee's design rights are not transferable and remain the property of Wordeee.
Every project is different. We don't have a one price fits all model. Your project price will be determined by the services you need.
Wordeee will outline this in the Author's contract, but you will get paid from the first book sold. Since you have no advance to pay back, nothing stands in the way of your success — the world will be your oyster. Even better is the fact that from your lounge you can track your sales and release your accumulated royalties any time you wish with the click of a button.
If at any time you are dissatisfied with the production of your work, you should immediately reach out to Wordeee’s customer service. If a resolution cannot be reached, Wordeee will defer to the terms and agreement clause’s refund policy statement. For any further questions or a refund request, contact us here.
Your lounge is your citadel. Build it and they will come. Upon signing up as a Wordeee Author, you will be given access to create your unique “Author Lounge” that is hosted by Wordeee. Your Author Lounge is your personalized space where you engage your audience through a variety of social options, be it video, audio, live-streaming, etc.… It is also your lifeline to Wordeee services and your personal data, like the number of books you’ve sold, to whom and where, and the amount of royalty your work has earned.
Sign up to be on our Speaker’s Bureau, teach a masterclass, and engage your audience in fresh and creative ways, and in ways that only you can decide. We make it possible; you make it happen. Your lounge is also where you can release your royalty checks and examine your sales. No more waiting 6-18 months for your check. You’ll get paid on demand. This alone differentiates us from every other publisher in the world, bar none.

Wordeee is a community driven platform. Your readers decide how great you are. The more they comment the more you trend and that’s why it’s important to have great content in your lounge. Trending authors come to the attention of Wordeee by bubbling up to the number one or two spots. Wordeee will evaluate these authors for cross platform potential. For example the subject matter of your book sparks a national or international conversation. We may decide then that you would be a wonderful person to have your own Wordeee Television talk show….on Wordeee TV. Or your books is movie good…we may decide to make an original content movie of your book. The transformation of words in all its iteration is what the full vision of the Wordeee platform is all about.
