Danielle Steel Releases Complete Works as Digital Downloads
On Tuesday, novelist Danielle Steel released 71 of her works, including the new "One Day at a Time," as digital downloads on Amazon.com and The eBook Store by Sony, representing the largest online release by an author in a single day. This is the first time Steel's books, which are published by Random House division Bantam Dell, have been made available in digital format.
"I'm thrilled to be releasing my newest novel, 'One Day at a Time,' into the increasingly important world of digital book distribution," says Steel. "The fact that, at the same time, we're making my entire catalog available for digital downloads, and are among the first to do this, is something that I'm extremely proud of and very grateful to my publisher for doing. I hope that it brings my work to a new generation of readers."
In November, Random House said that it would be making thousands of additional books available in digital form, from 8,000 to nearly 15,000 within months, reported the Associated Press.
