Press Release: International Ebook Distribution for Hachette Book Group
Hachette Book Group has partnered with our sister company, Hachette UK, in a new ebook distribution arrangement that will significantly expand our presence in English language markets worldwide.
Under this arrangement, authors who have granted world or world English language rights of their books to HBG will have ebooks in English available for sale worldwide. Ebooks will go on sale immediately in the UK, Europe, Australia, India and Africa (through HUK's ebook retail partners) and in South America, the Caribbean, and Asia in the coming weeks (through HBG's ebook retail partners).
Advantages of this new arrangement include selling ebooks in local currency and with local market knowledge. In addition, HBG's ebooks will be available for promotion and inclusion in retailers' marketing programs in HUK's territories. Authors will receive full ebook royalties on these sales.
