Newsweek/Daily Beast Partners With Ebook Publisher Vook
Newsweek/Daily Beast is partnering with ebook publisher Vook to produce a series of ebooks, beginning with the just-published "Why Romney Lost (And What the GOP Can Do About It)," by Newsweek contributing editor and author David Frum. (Fast work, indeed -- what if Romney had won? Was there a similar book about the Democrats being readied, or was the company so sure that Obama would return to the White House?) "We needed to get [the book] into the marketplace quickly to beat the post-election crush," notes Mark Miller, Newsweek/Daily Beast director of editorial operations. No word on how many books are in the works and when they will be published.
