Strategic Book Publishing Signs Groundbreaking eBook Deal for Russian Distribution

NEW YORK – December 14, 2011 – Strategic Book Publishing & Rights Agency has announced the sale of over 500 of its eBook titles for distribution throughout Russia. The deal was signed with AVIRSA Holding, an international company headquartered in Moscow; AVIRSA subsidiary Wexler Electronics produces the #2 ebook reader in Russia, with a growing market share. Sales of Wexler eBooks topped half a million over the last year.

The agreement covers the Strategic eBook catalogue as of the first quarter of 2011, adding a new distribution channel for the titles, making them available to one of the largest, growing global markets.

Strategic CEO Robert Fletcher said, “We do not know of a single other publisher that has landed a deal like this for their authors. The name of the game is global expansion and we are on the leading edge. Next, we fully expect to sell our authors’ books inside China in the same style of contract.” Earlier this year, the company sold the ebook catalogue for Taiwanese distribution.

AVIRSA and SBPRA were both represented at the Frankfurt Book Fair, where discussions began. Strategic Book Publishing encourages all of its 3,000-plus authors throughout the world to participate in the company’s Foreign Rights Expo Outreach Program and to create eBook versions of their books.
