ESE, Inc. has added StreetLib and PublishDrive to its portfolio of ePub partners to jump-start ESETOMES books' presence in India, The Philippines, Europe, and Africa the Company announced this morning.
Loreto, Italy based StreetLib is partnered with almost 200 online bookstores around the world while PublishDrive gives writers access to 400 stores and 240,000 digital libraries in over 70 countries.
"According to the NOP World Culture Score Index of the 30 Countries that read the most, the U.S. is ranked 22nd. India and The Philippines are ranked 1st and 4th respectively, and they are the 2nd and 4th largest English speaking countries. Although Nigeria is not in the Top 30, they are the 5th largest English speaking country and have more English speaking people than the UK. As a result, I feel these are viable markets for our books. We'll be leaning on our two new partners and their support programs for self-publishers for ideas on how to crack these marketplaces," said ESE, Inc. CEO Eric Simmons.
