“The updated site allows us to continue with our mission to be as environmentally smart as possible. This new hosting arrangement will help us to make our books more available to a wider range of buyers.

New York, NY (PRWEB) October 16, 2012

Sullivan Street Press leading green e-book publisher, recently partnered with Steve Rypka, GreenDreamWeb’s Owner/Designer to overhaul their existing website and to move it to a 100% green server that uses renewable wind power as the sole energy source.

GreenDreamWeb is a small web design and hosting company with a major focus on environmental responsibility functioning completely carbon-neutral. Everything from the servers that host the websites, to the facilities that house the computers and employees runs on a combination of solar and wind power.

As the publisher, Deborah Emin says, “The updated site allows us to continue with our mission to be as environmentally smart as possible. This new hosting arrangement will help us to make our books more available to a wider range of buyers. By providing a greater amount of information for the book buyer on all aspects of the e-reading experience--from how they were developed, to the range of availability, to technical help on using them--our faster site offers more information, as well as support, than other e-publishers do presently.”

Many improvements have been made to the website with the goal of making each and every visit to the site easier and more informative. Some of the updates include:

  •     Real time Twitter/Facebook stream
  •     Robust blog containing a mix of news, views, book reviews and guest blogs
  •     Informational section on eBooks
  •     Enhanced Shopping Cart services with reliable customer service
  •     Landing pages for new ventures

This innovation has helped Sullivan Street Press to continue its green e-publisher commitment by providing readers with an environmentally friendly website that promotes alternatives to traditional book publishing. Sullivan Street Press has always seen itself as having two missions: to change the publishing paradigm and to sell books that tell the stories many others refuse to publish. With the updated site, they are confident that they can accomplish both.

About Sullivan Street Press:

Founded 3 years ago, Sullivan Street Press entered the e-publishing domain to change the publishing paradigm. It recognized that for both financial and environmental reasons it was necessary to advocate for the rise of the e-book and the technology that makes all things digital possible. Responding to readers’ concerns, many of whom aren’t yet ready to commit to the e-book revolution, SSP began to have its books published in Print-on-Demand format on the Espresso Book Machine at McNally Jackson Books in New York City. Then it reached out to On Demand Books, the parent company of the Espresso Book Machine, to be included in their world wide system of Espresso Book Machines. In furtherance of the digital side of its publishing mission, the Scags Series is also available as in iPad app, powered by MAZ Digital.
