DigitalPulp Publishing (http://www.digitalpulppublishing.com, DPP), a Southern California-based ePublishing and eBook distributing company is thrilled to participate in the World eBook Fair as a publisher, distributor and sponsor.
The month-long celebration marks the 35th anniversary of the first steps taken toward eBooks – when the United States’ Declaration of Independence was placed online as the first file available for downloading by Michael Hart, founder of Project Gutenberg.
The DPPstore (http://www.DPPstore.com), Project Gutenberg, the World eBook Library, and Baen Books are this year’s sponsors for the Fair. Between July 4 and August 4 everyone is invited to download the 1/3 of a million titles available – for free. Visit http://worldebookfair.com/.
“The fair began Tuesday (July 4), and already more than 1.5 million books have been downloaded,” said Gregory Newby, Gutenberg's volunteer CEO.
“It’s amazing!” adds Genene Miller Coté, co-founder and CEO of DigitalPulp Publishing. “We are very excited to be a part of this celebration and indebted to DPP’s authors and the independent presses (who distribute through the company’s eBookstore, (http://www.dppstore.com) who willingly contributed essays, excerpts of their books, and full manuscripts to make this event a success.”

DigitalPulp Publishing publishes, promotes, and distributes eBooks. First-time authors can find a voice through DPPpub (http://www.DPPpub.com). Through DPPpress (http://www.DPPpress.com), self-publishers and independent presses who already have books in traditional print can utilize DPP’s services to create eBooks, and those who already have eBooks can gain a new channel for distribution in the DPPstore (http://www.DPPstore.com).
“I think there is a lot of unnecessary fear about eBooks,” says DPP critic Pat Palmer. “I hope the eBook Fair encourages current non-eBook readers to give eBooks a try.”
"For the new generation, e-books will be as natural to them as television is to us,” says Dan Brown (author of The Da Vinci Code). “eBooks are here. I believe they are here to stay. Welcome to the wonderful world of choice."
