We're a startup publisher founded by veteran software engineers, television producers and online marketing experts focused on developing new fiction and select non-fiction, primarily for digital distribution. Our first set of titles will be released in Summer of 2010. Our titles will be released on the Kindle, Sony Reader, B&N Nook along with special Rich Mobile Editions for the iPhone and Android that feature original video content bundled with text. We will also release all titles on trade paperback for traditional distribution through bookstores nationwide. Our focus is on celebrity networking and viral marketing as a tool to develop new writers. Unlike traditional publishers, we also give our authors a much higher percentage of gross sales. We feel that traditional publishers have been slow to respond to the trend towards electronic distribution and have yet to truly avail themselves of all the tools available to market books online.
