Bloomington, Ind. (PRWEB) August 3, 2010
AuthorHouse, a leading self-publishing imprint of Author Solutions, Inc. (ASI), announced Tuesday that it has made available for the first time ever digital versions of 12 classic Harold Robbins novels. The titles are available through the Apple iBookstore, the Amazon Kindle, the Barnes & Noble nook, and the Sony e-Reader.
Robbins’ widow Jann Robbins chose to bring the out-of-print titles back into print with AuthorHouse specifically so that digital formats could be made available to Robbins’ fans and to reach out to a new generation of readers who may not have been exposed to his works.
“Harold was a literary trailblazer who did things his way, and he would be excited by the changes underway in publishing—especially the growing popularity of e-books and other digital formats,” said Jann Robbins. “I felt it was important to get these works out to new readers, and a big part of that was making the digital versions available through multiple platforms.”
AuthorHouse announced in June it was partnering with Jann Robbins to bring back: Where Love Has Gone; The Lonely Lady; Goodbye, Janette; The Adventurers; Never Love a Stranger; Descent from Xanadu; Memories of Another Day; The Pirate, The Inheritors; Spellbinder; Dreams Die First; and The Dream Merchants. Robbins remains the top-selling American fiction writer with more than 750 million copies of his books sold.
“ASI’s been aggressive in making our new titles available for purchase through leading digital readers and content portals,” said Kevin Weiss, ASI president and CEO, “It’s fantastic that we’re in a time that allows Jann to bring back these timeless classics in formats that appeal to readers of all ages.”
