A note from our founder
For years, as a book publisher, I had the privilege of getting my authors to the top of many bestseller lists, but my enthusiasm began to wane. I had reached my limits. At the same time, my office was filling up with countless manuscripts, not all of them suitable for a long book, but each one peppered with exceptional stories.
I longed more and more to publish all these great stories at once, but how? So I set out to find unknown and outrageous stories. Unsuccessfully. No place for great stories? So, with a little courage and a lot of idealism, I decided to take a leap of faith: To find storytellers with good stories, give them a platform and publish all their books. Here it is, have fun.
Dear fellow storytellers,
I am Hannes, the founder of story.one, and I am thrilled to welcome you to our platform.
As a book publisher I have seen firsthand the power of storytelling to connect people, inspire change, and shape the world we live in.
But I have also witnessed how off-putting and exclusive book publishing can be. That’s why I set up story.one, to create a completely new publishing experience that puts you, the storyteller, at the center.
At story.one, we believe that every person’s story is unique and valuable, and we are committed to empowering writers of all backgrounds to share their thoughts, adventures and ideas with the world.
Our platform is designed to be simple, intuitive to use and accessible to everyone who wants to express themselves in stories and books, regardless of their experience. Whether you’re a seasoned author or a first-time writer. Whether you write in English, German or any other language, whether you want to share a personal memory or a work of fiction, story.one is here to help you bring your story to life. It is a place to connect with other, share your work, receive feedback from a supportive community of writers and readers and publish your book.
I am excited to see the stories and books that you will create and the impact that they will have.
