Please contact us with any enquiry, although remember to check the FAQs below. If we have a local dealer or partner, we can get you in touch with the best person to deal with, at the very least.
Because of the large variety of book types and distribution models that we deal with, it can seem daunting at times. We are teachers first, so our point of departure is always about the student, but also about our fellow teachers, and how best to get great learning materials into everyone's hands. We will help you as best we can, but we are always happy to hear some good stories as well.

Publishing History and Philosophy
We have been publishing in the digital space for over a decade, with many lessons learned over that time. From the very beginning, we chose not to follow the rest of the market, seeing the issues which stood in front of publishers everywhere. Rather than follow the path well-worn by others, from early epubs, mobi and kindle versions of books, which was always going to best serve novels and text-centric books, we chose another way for education, because of the inherent need for interactivity, and DRM. BYOD has been a sample of what we do for over a decade, with every book we create being capable of supporting audio, video, and so on.
Apart from simply being worried about how the book is made, a huge consideration has always been put into the length of time required for digitizing books. If it takes months, or weeks, or even a handful of days, then you have been missing the point. Digitizing, with full interactivity should be taking less than 1 hour, for 1 person.
Because we also see a very big need, even today, for in-book testing and tracking those scores into an LMS, we have needed to go the route of supporting 2 systems. But as we have said for years and years... show me one system that can do everything from tracking results, to being local on a tablet, to being truly scable and affordable, and we will close up shop. Not one service has ever challenged us on this point... and won. That's all you need to know about us.
Piron Pub produces digital books and provides publishers, authors, and content creators alike the opportunity to take the materials they have created, and deliver them to a global audience, in an interactive, digital form. Depending on the need, we can add audio, video, and testing/tracking to enhance the book, and contribute to the learning experience. We come from a teaching background, ensuring that educational, teacher and student needs are attended to and maintained. Speed to market, pricing and scalability are primary movers for us. We also offer an LMS to tie everything together!
