What they are offering is enough to impress multiple top literary agents (not just Lori Perkins) as well as several very, very well-known bestselling authors in print. There will be an announcement on who some of those bestselling authors are soon, is my understanding. And what they are offering is enough to get them multiple feature articles in major press outlets over the next two months leading up to the launch.
The other epubs didn't accomplish _any_ of that when they first launched, let alone before they launched. None at all. Just saying.
Um... Yeah. They did. You obviously don't know much about BookStrand. They're releasing hundreds of titles and authors -- Nora Roberts, James Patterson... -- in October.
