Expansion: Macmillan Adds Titles from Entangled Publishing to Library E-Lending Pilot Program
A global distribution deal between independent Entangled Publishing (romance and young adult fiction) and Macmillan was first announced at the beginning of 2013.
Today, word that Entangled titles are now available as part of Macmillan’s ebook lending program that got underway earlier this year.
Entangled is the first publisher added to the trial since it launched.
From Today’s Announcement:
Through Macmillan Publisher’s e-Lending program, Entangled books purchased by libraries will be lendable for 2 years, or up to 52 times. The arrangement includes all Entangled titles, including the NY Times bestselling novels Wrong Bed, Right Guy by Katee Robert, Seducing Cinderella by Gina L. Maxwell, and The Marriage Bargain by Jennifer Probst, as well all backlist titles since the publisher’s inception in July of 2011.
“This new program will allow our books to get into hands of millions through the venerable library system and that’s what every publisher and author wants–to have their books discovered and loved by readers.”
