Faber & Faber to Make Excerpts Available on New Discovery Platform Jellybooks

UK-based publisher Faber & Faber has signed on with new book discovery start-up Jellybooks to make its titles available for the service, which allows users to browse titles, read the first 10% of a book, share that excerpt with friends, and sign up for sale alerts. Buy buttons at the end of the excerpts are designed to drive interested readers to purchase.

The large independent London-based publishing house joins Profile Books, another UK independent publisher, on the site.

Jellybooks has several more publishers in the pipeline, founder (and DBW Expert Blogger) Andrew Rhomberg told Digital Book World, but could not publicly share which ones.

Faber & Faber publishes such authors as Stav Sherez and Justin Fletcher.
