Yesterday Scrollmotion and Little, Brown Book Group launched digital U.K. editions of Stephenie Meyer’s bestselling Twilight series, a breakthrough for international distribution of digital versions of Meyer’s work.
According to the release, U.K. readers can now download “Twilight,” “New Moon,” “Eclipse,” and “Breaking Dawn” via ScrollMotion’s Iceberg Reader. The Iceberg Reader works with the iPhone and iPod Touch, and the trial program will also include digital titles by Iain M. Banks, Patricia Cornwell, Dorothy Koomson, and Alexander McCall Smith.
David Shelley, the digital publisher at Little, Brown Book Group, had this statement: “I am really delighted that weâ€™re now able to offer readers the opportunity to own some of our key titles on the iPhone. I think the quality and readability of the apps is superb, and I imagine that many will be as seduced by them as we all are here. To be able to add to the range of ways consumers can read their favourite authors feels like a particularly exciting development.”
