Over the past few years more and more publication companies have extended their businesses beyond the front door of bookstores all over the country. In fact, most major publishers have or are planning to make their presence known and felt in the Internet market, where more and more readers are turning to wholesale e book stores for all their book needs.Everyone knows and understands the difference between a paperback and hardcover book. Novels composed by well known and popular authors are generally first released in a hardcover print edition that can cost anywhere between twenty and thirty dollars a book. After the book has enjoyed a nice run in the hardcover market, it will then be reprinted in paperback and will be released a second time. For years, book publishers have made a great deal of money from this method of publishing.
However, with the Internet boom there was an outcry from readers for book publishers to release all their books in electronic format via the World Wide Web. Readers demanded that publishers release the books on the Internet where readers can view the books via their computer screen or can simply download and print the book from the comfort of their home.In short an e book has no additional or different content than a published book. The only difference is that an e book is created and fashioned in electronic form and can be viewed in a simple document much like a Microsoft Word document. This type of publication is the wave of the publishing future and it has come to the attention of publishers the world around. In fact, Stephen King published a book straight to e book titled, Riding the Bullet, and it sold over 400,000 copies within the first twenty-four hours it was made available.
With the success of riding the Bullet, publishers around the world have realized that the general reading public is making e books a regular part of their reading lives. Therefore, more and more authors and publishing houses are turning to wholesale e book retailers to promote and sell their written works.
