LAS VEGAS, June 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- LMBPN® Publishing, a global leader in indie digital book publishing, announced today that it has entered into an exclusive agreement with RosettaBooks to publish the first six books of David Brin's Out of Time series.
Through this agreement, the Out of Time series will be introduced to LMBPN's extensive global sci-fi fan base. Additionally, it will allow both companies to combine their marketing reach to further expand on David Brin's award-winning platform.
Michael Anderle, President/Chief Executive Officer at LMBPN, said, "Partnering with another publishing company is still new to us at LMBPN, but when the opportunity arose to embark on a new venture with RosettaBooks, allowing us to publish David Brin, I immediately said yes! David is a Hugo*, Locus*, Campbell*, and Nebula* Award winner, and his writing aligns with our aim to deliver high-quality, entertaining stories our readers want to read and reread over and over."
David Brin comments: "I crafted the Out of Time premise – kids from both our own time and past eras are hurtled forward to save a 24th Century in terrible crisis – to offer readers of all ages adventures filled with tension, thoughtfulness and optimism about the power of youth to courageously and ingeniously make a difference. Novels by some of the best living science fiction authors - Nancy Kress, Sheila Finch and Roger Allen – run with this fun premise, using characters from history, the present and an exciting future to weave a saga like no other."
Arthur Klebanoff, Chief Executive Officer at RosettaBooks said, "After 20 years as an independent eBook publisher building a catalog of over 800 perennial backlist titles, we are pleased to enter a targeted marketing agreement with one of the leaders in science fiction publishing. I am confident that the combination of LMBPN and RosettaBooks will serve the authors and both companies well."
