We stopped by the Coffee House Press booth at AWP, where editor Anitra Budd confirmed that the press has signed with BookMobile for eBook warehousing and distribution. The deal’s just been inked, and Coffee House is hoping to launch their first eBooks in the next four months or so.
The plan is to start with the fall season frontlist and then do selected titles from the backlist. Budd mentioned that novelist Laird Hunt was likely to be among those first backlist authors launched as eBooks. Coffee House has published all four of Hunt’s novels.
BookMobile also handles eBooks for Graywolf press, whom we are hoping to track down later today.
