I got an email from a contact that I have worked with previously. His name is Tony and he just started up Astor + Blue.
Here is some information about the company from their website. Like them on facebook for the latest information and updates.
DIGITAL PUBLISHING. CLASSIC PUBLISHER
Astor +Blue Editions is an innovative “Digital First” Publisher dedicated to producing the highest quality ebooks and custom print editions by leveraging the very latest in digital technology. We do not merely publish books, we E-LAUNCH them through a long term, proactive marketing program that features the best of traditional, mass and emerging new media outreach. In short: We maximize each book’s readership and keep it alive indefinitely.
WHAT IS “DIGITAL FIRST” PUBLISHING?
The Publishing World is not changing, it has changed. At A+B, we’ve embraced that change, and are constantly seeking out—and fearlessly trying—new ways to serve readers and authors in this new world. This is the essence of Digital First Publishing.
On the surface, Digital First Publishing involves releasing alternative electronic formats of titles (like ebooks) first, even before its print edition counterpart. But beneath this simple equation, lies the overarching commitment (and courage) to serve book lovers in innovative new ways—while preserving the heart of what makes great literature great: Good ideas, unique voices and wonderful writing. (And yes, good old-fashioned entertainment value).
Digital First Publishing is still relatively new, and thanks to the technological revolution, there are still many undiscovered frontiers in the publishing world to explore. And so, we invite you to take the journey and explore with us. Or, if you’re already exploring, we ask you to allow us to accompany you.
We hope you enjoy the electronic book’s contribution to your overall reading experience.
