(New York, NY, July 17th) Open Road Integrated Media, a digital publisher and multimedia content company, and Good Books, an independent publisher founded in 1979 which has published several # 1 New York Times bestsellers through the years, announced today that they are forming a digital publishing partnership to bring a wide range of the Good Books catalog to E for the first time ever. Open Road will work with Good Books to digitize, distribute and market a variety of titles including Amish novelist Linda Byler’s two best-selling series – “Sadie’s Montana” and “Lizzie Searches for Love” – and a selection of the bestselling Fix-It and Forget-It cookbooks.
The Fix-It and Forget-It PINK Cookbook is a special edition of Good Books’ collection of more than 700 slow-cooker recipes. It contains a full-color “Pink” section, full of stories, tips, photographs, and recipes from breast cancer survivors, access-to-care providers, and participants in Avon Foundation’s 9 city walks to raise money for the fight against Breast Cancer. Good Books will contribute $1.00 to The Avon Breast Cancer Crusade for every copy purchased, with a guaranteed minimum donation of $100,000.
