E-Book Publishers Take To The Cloud At Book Expo 2012

John Farrell, Contributor

Every year BookExpo America features more e-book publishers and distributors exhibiting right alongside the traditional publishers.

Amazon Kindle Direct, Lulu and Xlibris were touting the successes of their self-published authors.

But what caught my eye at this year’s conference, which started on Monday and runs through tomorrow at the Javits Center in New York, were the companies that are concentrating on digital distribution.

OverDrive reportedly hosts 650,000 premium digital titles from more than 1,000 publishers, such as Random House, HarperCollins, BBC Audiobooks America, Harlequin, and Bloomsbury.

The company’s Overdrive media console works on Macs and PCs for readers tied to their desktops. It also comes as an app for Android™ , BlackBerry®, iOS and Windows® Phone 7. CLICK HERE to read the full story.
