“This new print line will feature about one book per month and will be released simultaneously as an e-book and an audiobook,” says Ron Formica. “Of all the sectors of publishing, the two areas that have shown growth over the last few years have been downloadable audiobooks and e-books. For authors and readers who still want that physical book, we are happy to serve them with our new line.”
 
Colebank adds: “Tantor started to publish e-books in May 2011, and they have become very popular. As we approached agents about e-book rights,some asked if we were interested in original e-book only titles, and others asked if we would branch out into print. It made sense to offer the titles in allformats available to all markets. We chose to publish a select group of 12 to 15 titles per year, thus allowing us to focus the proper amount of editing,marketing, publicity, and sales support that each title needs to succeed.”
 
Tantor’s extensive unabridged audiobook catalog includes winners of the National Book Award, the Man Booker Prize, and the Pulitzer Prize, as well as numerous New York Times bestsellers, including Little Bee by Chris Cleave, The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins, A Dog’s Purpose, White Tiger, Stiff, and Chelsea Handler’s My Horizontal Life. Tantor’s audio narrators are among the industry’s best, including Audie winners Simon Vance, Scott Brick, Stephen Hoye, and Cassandra Campbell. Tantor has won numerous Audie Awards, most recently in 2012 for The King’s Speech and for The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby – both narrated by Simon Vance. Tantor will continue to release over 500 audiobooks annually.
 
Tantor, which has seen growth in every year of its existence, was founded by Kevin and Laura Colebank. Located in Old Saybrook, Connecticut, it has over 70 employees. The independent publisher distributes its books to all major retail outlets and all major platforms, including Kindle, Nook, Apple iBook, Google Android, Mobipocket,Amazon, OverDrive, Audible, iTunes, and CataList.
 
The company’s name is based on Tarzan’s elephant friend in Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs, the first audiobook published by the company.
