With our collective insight and knowledge in the publishing industry, let’s explore together what options exist for successful book publication outside of Scribe Media.

Scribe Media History

Scribe Media has been a leading name in the self-publishing industry for almost a decade. Founded in 2014 by Tucker Max and Zach Obront, it grew rapidly to become the go-to place for budding authors. Advertising their services as the one place for authors to go when writing their next book. Scribe Media has become one of the most recognizable leaders in the self-publishing industry. But the success found in their company wasn’t the only thing they wanted, as both Max and Obront stepped away from the company in late 2021. 

Change in Leadership

Scribe Media underwent significant leadership changes well before the founders’ departure. JeVon McCormick was appointed as CEO in 2016 and had since successfully grown the company, earning him admiration in the industry. In fact, he was recognized as one of the best CEO in Austin in 2021. The closure of Scribe and McCormick’s subsequent resignation has understandably shocked many who value his contributions.

In a recent post on his personal LinkedIn page, the now former CEO of Scribe Media opened up about the challenges he faced during his tenure. He recounted a series of situations that culminated in the event. He shared the difficult circumstances he went through and his inadequacy in addressing those issues, resulting in the recent troubles of the company, and apologized deeply to those who were affected.

 “I sincerely and deeply apologize to everyone this has impacted: Scribe and Libra Crew members, Authors, Freelancers, and all the people and companies that helped publish books for Scribe and Libra Authors.” 

However, many authors and former employees of Scribe Media blindsided by recent events feel disenchanted with Scribe Media. Despite the promise to current clients to get them published amid the search for a new buyer, those who have dedicated their time and resources to publishing with Scribe Media for a long while feel let down. Many authors have poured countless hours and resources into publishing their book.

As a result, publishing companies have been reaching out to offer their services and support to those affected by the sudden layoffs of Scribe Media.
