"Warren Adler has long been involved in digital publishing ventures, and we're thrilled he's decided to publish his new series in e-book form exclusively in the Kindle Store," said Russ Grandinetti, Vice President, Kindle Content. "We think Adler fans and readers who are just discovering his work will enjoy this new series."
Adler is also making available an anthology of "Warren Adler Short Story Contest Winners," featuring the winning pieces from the Warren Adler Short Story Contest, a contest Adler conceived to promote and revive the medium of the short story as a popular mode of literary expression. The anthology is available for $4.95, and is also exclusive to the Kindle store for two years.
"This exclusive deal reflects the rapidly changing need for mainstream novelists to find innovative ways to market their books," said Adler. "There is no question that Kindle and Amazon have pointed the way for an author to find new marketing and publicity techniques to gain the attention of its vast reader audience. As a leader in marketing e-books, Kindle offers tremendous opportunities that were never thought possible just a few years ago."
Adler is a bestselling author of more than 30 books. His books "The War of the Roses" and "Random Hearts" were both made into major motion pictures. Three short stories from his acclaimed collection "The Sunset Gang" have been adapted as a trilogy and shown on Public Television stations. His work has been translated into 25 languages.
