Simon & Schuster is making its Thomas Greanias ebook titles, including his global bestselling Atlantis Trilogy, available for library lending across the United States.
Among the New York Times bestselling author’s titles included in the distribution deal are Raising Atlantis, The Atlantis Prophecy, The Atlantis Revelation, The Promised War and The 34th Degree.
Simon & Schuster’s decision follows a one-year pilot program in New York City, and comes on the heels of offering Thomas Greanias titles to subscription services such as Oyster and Scribd.
Each Thomas Greanias ebook is available for lending for a year before the library has to buy another copy. Simon & Schuster is working with the digital library distributors Baker & Taylor, 3M and Overdrive.
“In early 2012, ALA began conversations with Simon & Schuster CEO Carolyn Reidy and her leadership team,” American Library Association president Barbara Stripling said in a statement. “We’re so pleased that Simon & Schuster has moved library ebook lending from a pilot to a mainstream business for the company.”
