TORONTO, Ontario (August 10, 2010) – ChiZine Publications (CZP) has made the eBook versions of their titles available on amazon.co.uk, the UK version of Amazon.com.
With UK-natives such as Tim Lebbon, Philip Nutman and Simon Logan on their growing roster, CZP co-publisher Brett Alexander Savory felt it important to give these authors’ home market greater access to their work: “Tim and Phil have a significant following in Britain, and Simon’s been taking Scotland by storm. With the growing popularity of the Kindle, this seemed like a natural step forward.” Savory says the move also solves the issues of currency conversion for customers from the UK.
But this decision not only reflects CZP’s attempts to reach beyond North America, but its support of the eBook format. “Though we pride ourselves on limited edition hardcovers and high quality trade paperbacks, we’re embracing eBooks,” says CZP co-publisher Sandra Kasturi.
