Phoenix Authors open an electronic publishing house. Sapphire Blue Publishing will specialize in electonic books in a variety of genres and formats.

We believe in a work environment that is fun and provides challenges that encourage play, innovation, and nimble out-of-the-pack thinking without boundaries.

Local authors Maria Clayton, and Tina Gerow are pleased to announce the grand opening of their publishing house, Sapphire Blue Publishing, on August 15, 2008. With their diverse business backgrounds they seek to form a win/win partnership in an industry they love.

"Our goal is to bring Corporate America know how and innovation into perfect balance for the best experience for readers and authors," says Maria Clayton, former Director of Technologies for a fortune 500 company. "We believe in a work environment that is fun and provides challenges that encourage play, innovation, and nimble out-of-the-pack thinking without boundaries."

Sapphire Blue's focus will be electronic books, or ebooks. These titles will take the form of a download that can be read on any number of electronic devices from the iPhone to dedicated electronic readers.

"Electronic book sales have doubled each year since 2001 and the projections are the market share will continue to climb," says Tina Gerow. "Think about all the trees we'll save. There's no better time to embrace our ecological concerns and pair that with what we love, reading good books."
