First One Digital Publishing Opens for Business as E-Publisher
BEVERLY HILLS, CA—Jan. 12, 2011—First One Digital Publishing opened for business by launching its Website, announcing the First One Contest Series (an impressive catalogue of upcoming titles) and releasing its first title, “Good Cop, Bad Money” by Glen Morisano.
First One Digital Publishing is a new brand of publishing company focused on publishing literary content primarily for digital e-reader outlets and devices. Led by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Karen Hunter, its goal is to be the first publisher to lead the charge in driving the e-book and digital content space across all digital formats.
Hunter is also co-author of numerous New York Times bestsellers, including “Ladies First,” “On the Down Low,” and “Wendy’s Got the Heat.” She is known for her discerning eye for celebrity stories and recently confirmed that First One will publish Reverend Al Sharpton’s “Mountain Highs and Valley Lows” as well as NBA All-Star Allan Houston’s book on parenting, “Fastbreak on Fatherhood.”
For “Good Cop, Bad Money,” First One has inked a deal with Market America and has published a run of terrestrial books to sell through the massive distributor that has committed to drive sales and put the books directly in front of its audience.
Reverend Al Sharpton commented: “I am proud and excited about being a part of what I believe will define publishing in the 21st Century. You can’t get a new message out in an old method. It’s like those who want to put out a new song on a 45-record or 8-track, not understanding that the method is antiquated. This launch of First One Digital is about messages for these times and the future, using the methodology of these times and the future.”
