BuzzFeed Publishes Its First eBook

After landing $19.3 million in new funds, the popular website BuzzFeed has made its “first venture into eBook publishing.”

Partnering with Blue Rider Press, the site will publish Panic 2012: The Sublime and Terrifying Inside Story of Obama’s Final Campaign by Michael Hastings. The $4.99 eBook wil be released on January 15. Here’s more from the release:

Hastings offers many juicy, newsworthy nuggets, like his verbatim account of a tense post-election confrontation with Chicago mayor and Obama advisor Rahm Emanuel that turned physical, or of being banished from the campaign plane for a week for refusing to go along with one of the unwritten rules governing coverage of the campaign. (Hastings’s sin was to merely mention that Obama had stopped at an off-the-record session with reporters in a hotel lounge in Orlando.) Hastings identifies heroes (starting with President Obama himself) and villains (starting with Governor Romney).
