ChiZine Publications (CZP) has made the eBook versions of their titles available for purchase on Wizard’s Tower Press, the online retailer for UK based SF and Fantasy publisher Wizard’s Tower Press and other similar small publishers from around the world.
With their author roster growing quickly with writers from the UK, CZP co-publisher Brett Alexander Savory thought this was an integral move for the press’s worldwide online marketing strategy. “We’ve been getting a lot of attention due to the fact that we publish authors from around the world, not just North Americans, and anything that makes us available to the UK readership is a positive.” Savory also noted that partnering with Wizard’s Tower Press would be an excellent opportunity to build relationships with other speculative fiction presses in the UK, and beyond.
This decision not only reflects CZP’s attempts to reach beyond North America, but also its support of the eBook format as well. “Though we pride ourselves on limited-edition hardcovers and high quality trade paperbacks, we’re embracing eBooks,” says CZP co-publisher Sandra Kasturi. “The support of the digital format is a natural and intelligent move, especially for smaller presses whose distribution is not as widespread compared to something like a multinational publisher.”
ChiZine Publications (CZP) has also made the eBook versions of their titles available for purchase on Kobo Books, Chapters-Indigo’s online eBook store.
All of CZP’s eBooks can be found, purchased and downloaded in ePub format via KoboBooks.com by searching for any of ChiZine’s current 19 titles (25 by May 15th). Though Kobo only supports the ePub format, other formats are available for purchase via the ChiZine website.
