295 Days ago

NEW YORK, NY --(Marketwired - February 16, 2016) - This month, RosettaBooks, the leading independent eBook publisher, marks the three-year anniversary of opening its UK Office, led by Jonathan Ward.

The UK Office has had a number of successes in the last three years, working with classic London literary agencies including Curtis Brown, AP Watt/United Agents, Pollinger Ltd, Andrew Nurnberg Associates, Aitken Alexander, AM Heath and Society of Authors.

Rosetta's work in the UK began with the signing of the complete works of Sir Winston Churchill in 2012, including his six volume World War II series in which he won the Nobel Price in Literature in 1953. The titles in the series include The Gathering Storm, Their Finest Hour, The Grand Alliance, The Hinge of Fate, Closing the Ring and Triumph and Tragedy.

This acquisition led the opening of a UK office to explore other extraordinary backlist British titles and expand its international reach.

In keeping with its tradition of publishing leading backlist authors, RosettaBooks has signed a bevy of British masters including 18 Robert Graves titles, led by I, Claudius and Claudius the God; 12 Sir Martin Gilbert books, led by History of the Twentieth Century and his bestselling biography Churchill: A Life; a five-title collection of Bernard Shaw writings on topics such as Theatre, Politics, Music, Literature and Religion (publishing March 1) and international authors like Mikhail Bulgakov (publishing Feb. 23).

"There continue to be great opportunities on the UK backlist, and also opportunities to put together new projects using the uncollected works of iconic authors," says Ward.

RosettaBooks has also begun two new publishing initiatives since the opening of its international office: frontlist book publishing and RosettaBrand. RosettaBrand builds upon Rosetta's longstanding institutional partnerships publishing initiative, working with AARP, Mayo Clinic, Hearst, The Associated Press and Harvard Health Publications by utilizing eBooks as communications and branding tools.

"RosettaBooks has significantly broadened its international reach during the past three years and looks forward to expanding its core backlist, frontlist and institutional publishing collections in years to come," said Arthur Klebanoff, CEO of RosettaBooks.
