HarperCollins to Sell English-Language Titles Globally

HarperCollins wants to make sure that all HarperCollins books are available in print or eBook form in all English-language markets.

The company has launched the HarperCollins 360 program to make works by authors published in the U.K., Australia, New Zealand, India, and Canada available to booksellers and readers in the U.S. when the rights are present.

When the program is in full swing, the publisher’s global catalog will include 50,000 print books and 40,000 eBooks. The press release has more: “The first phase of the program begins July 1, 2012, with HarperCollins U.K. titles moving to HarperCollins 360’s U.S. team.”

HarperCollins CEO Brian Murray explained: ”It is our responsibility to provide our authors with the broadest possible reach through our global print and digital publishing platforms, regardless of where their books originate. We are establishing new publishing roles, with marketing and publicity support, to maximize the global influence of our authors. Our vision is to have the entire HarperCollins book catalog available for customers in all major territories for which we have rights.”
