Self-publisher Provides Platform for Famous and New Authors Alike
Bloominton, IN (PRWEB) August 22, 2010
AuthorHouse, the leading provider of self-publishing and marketing services for authors around the globe, has released a new video promoting its appeal to authors of all backgrounds and experiences. In particular, it recounts the decisions by the Amazing Kreskin to publish his memoir with AuthorHouse and Jann Robbins—widow of Harold Robbins—to release 12 of his classic works in digital form for the first time ever.
“AuthorHouse is increasingly appealing to ‘famous authors’ as well as first-time and less experienced authors, because of the flexibility and author-centric focus. For these two prominent authors’ works to be released through AuthorHouse is a tribute to the democratization of publishing that AuthorHouse and other indie publishers have created,” said Keith Ogorek, senior vice president of marketing for Author Solutions, Inc.—AuthorHouse’s parent company.
Kreskin’s memoir, Kreskin Confidential, is his seventeenth book—the first he has self-published. Kreskin wrote the book in three weeks and chose AuthorHouse because he wanted it brought to market in conjunction with the 2008 feature film The Great Buck Howard, which was loosely based on his life and career.
“The reason for my self-publishing was initially that of time pressure,” Kreskin said. “I am pleased with my final choice because I have become immensely satisfied with the professionalism and the quality of work I found in AuthorHouse.”
Robbins’ titles have sold more than 750 million copies, in 32 different languages worldwide. His widow Jann chose AuthorHouse for re-releasing 12 of her late husband’s novels because she wanted to expose his out-of-print work to a new generation. Additionally, working with AuthorHouse allowed these culturally important works to be produced in digital formats for the first time.
“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.”
