By Dianna Dilworth 

Advantage Media Group (Advantage) and Forbes have launched a new imprint called ForbesBooks.

The editorial team is currently looking for submissions from known leaders in the business world. “Top thought leaders and idea makers in the business world today” can apply online to be considered. The imprint promises that it will cut the typical book publishing timeline in half.

“We see adding a book imprint to our business as a unique growth opportunity in the marketplace, and it’s in line with our strategy to diversify revenue streams and expand our global reach,” stated Mike Federle, president and COO of Forbes Media.  “We chose to partner with Advantage because its team brings experience and insight, along with an innovative, speed-to-market model unencumbered by traditional book publishing cycles.  Advantage also offers a suite of services designed to strategically and tactically support our authors and promote their expertise.”
