Children’s E-Book Publisher Goes to Print
Perhaps in a counter-intuitive move in the e-book era, a children’s e-book publisher has decided to print its entire catalog of e-books.
Irvine, Calif.-based Xist Publishing has already begun converting its 104 e-book-only titles to print books and will have completed the transition by September.
The company decided to make the transition when finding that its books that had both a print and e-book edition were selling more copies and at higher prices. Parents were also requesting print editions of their favorite e-books.
Xist Publishing creates e-books for a variety of devices and has been creating e-books since July 2011. The company has a dozen authors and 104 titles, including The Queen and the Cats: A Story of Saint Helena by Calee M. Lee and Secret Agent Josephine’s ABCs by Brenda Ponnay.
