iPublish Unveils First Online Book List

Time Warner Books’ electronic publishing division, iPublish.com, unveiled its first list of
monthly releases, calling it “the first such list of e-book titles from any
major publisher.”

iPublish.com, which will launch as an online publishing Web site in the first
quarter of next year, will begin distribution of its electronic books this
September.

The eclectic first list showcases new works by Time Warner authors including
Nelson DeMille, David Baldacci, Sandra Brown, Nicholas Sparks and David
Foster Wallace.

The list will also include Passport to Profits, a business book by finance
guru Mark Mobius with Stephen Fenichell, the first in a monthly series of
business titles that are condensed and reformatted for electronic reading.

iPublish said its titles will be available through several eBook formats,
including Microsoft Reader, Gemstar’s Rocket eBook and Softbook, Glassbook
and PeanutPress, and for sale at certain online retailers such as Barnes &
Noble.com.

“I think (the list) offers a taste of the exciting eBooks we’ll have in
coming months — such as new works by bestselling brand name authors,
original works by some of our most celebrated authors and exclusive content
that maximizes the advantages of
digital reading,” said Claire Zion, editorial director of iPublish.com.

iPublish will be a dedicated Internet publishing venture featuring an online
community that will unite readers, authors and editors and develop new
methods for the production, distribution, and sales of fiction and
non-fiction titles created specifically for the Internet.
