OR Books to Rush Collection about Gaza Flotilla Raid

ORBooks.pngThe new publisher OR Books will speed publish a collection about the Israeli raid on a flotilla bearing aid for Gaza. Entitled Murder on the Mavi Marmara: The Attack on the Gaza Freedom Flotilla and How It Changed the Course of the Israel/Palestine Conflict, the book will be edited by American Book Award-winner Moustafa Bayoumi.

Katherine Fausset at Curtis Brown negotiated the deal with OR Books co-publisher Colin Robinson. The book has a tight schedule, according to the release: “paperback copies and e-books will ship July 28th 2010 with publication September 1st 2010.” OR Books found similar success with the quick-turnaround title, Going Rouge: Sarah Palin–An American Nightmare–a book timed for the release of Palin’s memoir.

Robinson had this statement: “This kind of rapid fire interventionist publishing is something the OR Books publishing model is especially well-adapted for. We’re delighted to be working with Moustafa Bayoumi whose previous book I tried sign when at The New Press. We will be devoting very substantial resources to promoting his book including video, on-line advertising, extensive electronic mailing and author events.”
