DPP DigitalPulp Publishing, a Southern California-based ePublishing and eBook distributing company joins 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, 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 eBooks exhibited – for FREE! Visit worldebookfair.com
“Kudos to Michael Hart (Project Gutenberg) and John Guagliardo (Executive Director of the World eLibrary Book Consortia) for putting the Fair together. We are proud to be included with them in spreading the word about eBooks,” says Genene Miller Coté, CEO of DigitalPulp Publishing.
“This is very exciting; you couldn’t ask for better company!” she adds. “We are also indebted to DPP’s authors and the independent presses (who distribute through the company’s eBookstore) who willingly contributed essays, excerpts of their books, and full manuscripts to make this event a success.”
Project Gutenberg began in 1971 and continues to inspire the creation of eBooks and related technologies today.
Founded in 1996, the World Electronic Book Library Consortia is a global coordinated effort to preserve and disseminate classic works of literature, serials, bibliographies, dictionaries, encyclopedias, and other reference works in a number of languages and countries around the world.
Respected SciFi publisher Baen Books has been in the business since 1983. They are innovators in both eBooks and internet marketing.
DigitalPulp Publishing publishes, promotes, and distributes eBooks. First-time authors can find a voice through DPPpub. Through DPPpress 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.
Check out DPP’s authors and thousands of other books at the World eBook Fair, , July 4-August 4. It will be fun – and it’s free!
