Diversion Books Releases The First Two Branded eBooks from Partnership Series with The Washington Post
On August 24, 2012, Diversion Books announced a partnership with The Washington Post to publish a series of branded eBooks featuring content from The Washington Post archives. Today, in collaboration with The Washington Post, the first two eBooks in that series, The Original Watergate Stories and The Bryce Harper Story, are now on sale.
The Original Watergate Stories ($4.99 U.S., 168pp), previously self-published by The Washington Post exclusively on Amazon in August and newly taken over by Diversion Books with retail distribution extending to Apple, B&N, and Kobo, recounts the timeline of the scandal the newspaper broke forty years ago this year. The Bryce Harper Story ($4.99 U.S., 196pp) chronicles the acclaimed Washington National outfielder’s rise to the major leagues through unprecedented access from The Washington Post.
The next two forthcoming books in the series, Obama: The Evolution of a President ($4.99, 78pp) and The Hunt for Bin Laden ($2.99, 46pp), are scheduled for release next Tuesday, 10/9/12.
