Open Road and Ingram Collaborate to Distribute 36-author E-riginal Novel
Mr. Verano continued, "Working with Open Road, Ingram, and OnDemand Books allows both the bookstore and the publisher to prove by example that a new model of publishing and printing are possible."
"With the enormous changes the industry is experiencing, publishers like Open Road are realizing the advantages of both print and digital title distribution to reach more readers and grow their businesses," said David "Skip" Prichard, President & CEO, Ingram Content Group Inc. "By offering complementary and integrated services that cover physical and digital distribution, inventory management and a full range of printing services, publishers can now expand reach and take advantage of greater connectivity in the market. We look forward to our ongoing work with Open Road and the development of a deeper relationship with them."
In October 2010, thirty-six writers in the Pacific Northwest came together for a week-long marathon of writing live on stage at the event, The Novel: Live!, created by Seattle7Writers. Hotel Angeline, is the resulting E-riginal novel from the event.
