DORCHESTER PUBLISHING ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH NETGALLEY

New York, NY/ February 21, 2011–Dorchester Publishing announced today that they will use NetGalley to deliver digital galleys and other promotional materials to reviewers, bloggers, educators, media, booksellers, and other professional readers.

Dorchester plans to utilize NetGalley’s services to establish an environmentally friendly and cost effective approach to galley distribution.

    The best thing this company could do is get David Thompsons Wilderness series back into paperback status.This e book stuff is junk, what a disservice to all of fans of Davids books.I have all 64 until you folks stopped on me and other fans of his

      Thank you for your comment, Ron.

      I would like to take this opportunity to clarify that Dorchester is not an e-book only publisher and that the Wilderness series will continue to be released in both print and digital formats. The trade paperback line actually began with the Wilderness series packaged as double editions. Dorchester will continue this tradition as we work to get the backlist of the series available in trade. Future titles in the series will also be available in trade with the possibility of mass market, too.

      You can find our list of upcoming titles at our website, including information about new titles and re-releases in the Wilderness series.

      Wilderness Double: Seed of Evil (65)/Garden of Eden (66) is due out in trade in September.

      Thanks for your interest in the Wilderness series!
