Morgan James to Preview and Directly Sell Print and e-Books on the Mobile, Social Web, and Enable Sales by Aer.io Retail Network

NEW YORK, Feb. 12, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Morgan James Publishing today announced a new, consumer direct program offering previews and sales of all of their books to web and social network users on both mobile and desktop devices via the Aer.io Retail Network. Beginning today, users of Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, or any other network, can easily read socially optimized excerpts of bestselling print and eBooks published by Morgan James. Readers can purchase the books, and later this month they'll also be able to sell the books themselves in their own Aer.io Retail Network storefronts.

Titles include Jeff Walker's #1 New York Times bestselling title Launch: An Internet Millionaire's Secret Formula To Sell Almost Anything Online, Build A Business You Love, And Live The Life Of Your Dreams, and Explosion Green: One Man's Journey To Green The World's Largest Industry, by David Gottfried, among others.

Morgan James is delivering extended mobile, tablet, and desktop reading experiences that may be shared and enjoyed within any social stream. The preview reader includes a buy button that allows customers to directly purchase titles from MorganJamesPublishing.com with eCommerce and support by Aer.io Retail Network, and print fulfillment and reporting by industry-leading Ingram Content Group.

Morgan James titles can now be shared as Twitter Cards, Facebook posts, and Pinterest Pins. And these can be expanded so users can read an up-to-20% sample that includes an integrated multi-item, multi-format cart, social sharing, and email opt-in for special Morgan James offers and announcements.

"We are really excited to directly put our books into social streams within mobile devices that readers carry with them during all waking hours," said David L. Hancock, Founder and CEO, Morgan James Publishing. "And by making our books available both for sale–and for selling–we're ensuring that our authors and their books are broadly discoverable in this fast-evolving marketplace."
