Harlequin signs exclusive subscription deal with Scribd
3 October 2014 @booksandpublishing
Harlequin has signed a one-year agreement to make Scribd the ‘exclusive subscription partner’ for 15,000 of its backlist titles, reports Digital Book World. The publisher’s full catalogue will also be available for purchase from the Scribd retail store. Harlequin CEO and publisher Craig Swinwood said in a statement that the deal ‘will benefit Harlequin authors through extended reach, increased discovery and improved royalty streams’. Harlequin was acquired by HarperCollins parent company NewsCorp earlier this year. HarperCollins was one of the first major publishers to make its backlist titles available through Scribd.
