LAS VEGAS, July 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- LMBPN Publishing, a global leader in indie digital book publishing, announced today that it has entered into an exclusive multi-division agreement with leading independent audiobook publisher RBmedia to produce a new, nine-book series, The Great Insurrection, co-authored by best-selling authors David Beers and Michael Anderle. The original series will be simultaneously published by two of RBmedia's brands: its flagship Recorded Books audiobook publishing imprint and GraphicAudio, a leader in immersive, dramatized audio.
This effort will make The Great Insurrection stories available to readers and audio fans through multiple formats on the publication day of each new book. Consumers will have their choice of ebook, print, single narrator audiobooks, and full-cast audio recordings for each story in this highly anticipated science fiction series.
Michael Anderle, President/Chief Executive Officer at LMBPN, said, "This is an exciting time for our company as we extend our working relationship with various publishing brands of RBmedia. By combining LMBPN's proven ability to deliver great stories, Recorded Books' successful track record in single-voice audio and Graphic Audio's "A Movie in Your Mind®" proprietary process of dramatized adaptations, our new series The Great Insurrection will continue to deliver on our promise to provide readers with stories they want to read and listen to over and over again."
"Sci-fi/fantasy continues to be an area of high demand and great editorial innovation. LMBPN is an entrepreneurial originator of this kind of content. We are pleased to enter into this partnership," says Troy Juliar, Chief Content Officer for RBmedia. "As the world's largest independent publisher of audiobooks and a leader in the sci-fi/fantasy audio market, RBmedia is eager to bring these new titles to these discerning fans in audiobook format."
Under the agreement, GraphicAudio will produce dramatized audio content for The Great Insurrection series, featuring a full cast of actors, sound effects, and cinematic music. "GraphicAudio's unique ability to deliver high-quality, fully immersive audio experiences and original scripted works is unparalleled," said Anji Cornette, Vice President at GraphicAudio. "This unique partnership will enable us to bring this innovative audio storytelling approach to scores of sci-fi fans around the world."
The first title published under the agreement will be available in early 2021 on Audible, iTunes, Google Play, Audiobooks.com, and many other sites that provide digital audio.
