We, vicbooks, have started selling eBooks. VUP’s eBooks. And it really is just the beginning.
VUP stands for Victoria University Press.
VUP is ahead of the NZ publishing curve, having started the conversion of their new releases and some of their backlist into eBooks. They have joined forces with meBooks, an excellent NZ eBook concern that wants to promote the conversion and sales of NZ content in the eBook market.
vicbooks is proud to be able to involve ourselves in promoting VUP titles in this format, and really grateful to meBooks for putting in huge amounts of work for it to be possible.
This is the thin edge of the wedge – soon other independent and spirited NZ publishers will be following suit, making available a wealth of NZ content to the emerging eBook market. As soon as the big publishers catch up with their more nimble colleagues NZ books will be well and truly shooting ahead into the technological future. To see the current VUP collection, plus a few free titles from such luminaries as Katherine Mansfield, Robin Hyde and John Mulgan, that are not only quite juicy, but will soon make you the envy of all your eFriends, just follow the link.
