Xlibris International Expands Into the UK, Australia and New Zealand and Announces the Inclusion of eBook Publishing Feature

Opening the Door to Authors Around the World to Publish in Paperback, Hardcover, Electronic, or Elegant Leather Bound Format and Cementing Their Reputation as the Global Leader in Self-Publishing.

Bloomington, IN, November 06, 2009 --(PR.com)-- Xlibris Publishing, the global leader in self-publishing announced their expansion into the UK, Australian and New Zealand markets today with new, digital friendly publishing services.

Xlibris has nurtured relationships with worldwide leaders in the industry and has initiated the launch of alliances with industry-leading digital content portals giving its titles worldwide availability in both print and digital format. The addition of publishing in the ePub format to its entire line of Black & White Publishing Services will enable the independent publishing giant to dominate the online digital publishing market by producing digital versions of all new titles it publishes – and converting tens of thousands from its list of already published titles.

By utilizing its established relationships, these titles will be available worldwide through several popular e-readers and e-channels as well as the traditional book printers and distributors. With the help of the Sony e-Book Store, Amazon’s Kindle eBook Store, and the possibility of distribution through the Apple iStore, thousands of Xlibris titles will be available in a myriad of formats to reach every reader around the world.

“Xlibris leads the world in new titles brought to market. We will convert every new title and tens of thousands from our backlist into digital formats and make them available through the leading digital content portals. We believe as our self-publishing business continues to accelerate, we will become the world’s largest publisher of original digital content,” said Kevin Weiss, president and chief executive officer.

By being at the forefront of digital publishing, and combined with their expansion into the UK, Australian and New Zealand publishing markets, Xlibris has truly cemented their place as the global leader in the rapidly growing self-publishing industry.

To commemorate Xlibris’ entrance into these markets, Xlibris is offering a 50% off sale on all listed prices for publishing and marketing services for the month of November.
