Author Solutions Publishes 100,000th E-Book

Indie Book Publishing World Leader Achieves Major Milestone With Lisa K. Drucker's "Arise, O Phoenix"

BLOOMINGTON, IN--(Marketwire - May 22, 2012) - Author Solutions, Inc. (ASI), the world leader in indie-book publishing, announced the release of its 100,000th e-book, "Arise, O Phoenix," marking a major milestone for the company and indie authors worldwide.

"In late 2009, we launched an initiative to become the world's largest publisher of original digital content. With our latest milestone, we're on pace to achieve our goal by the end of 2012," said Kevin Weiss, president and CEO of Author Solutions, Inc. "As the market leader, we've accelerated our pace by offering authors the right mix of print and digital services with access to the marketing and distribution they need to promote their works."

In Lisa K. Drucker's "Arise, O Phoenix," a twist of fate following the September 11, 2001 tragedy brings a pair of long-lost lovers together again. It is a story of love's indomitable power and the triumph of the human spirit, set against the backdrop of 9/11. The e-book is published by ASI's iUniverse imprint and has received its "Rising Star" distinction.

"I wrote this book during the weeks directly following September 11, 2001, because I wanted to capture the way I felt about the events as they unfolded," said Drucker. "Although the characters are fictional, their emotions and reactions are very real, and are intended to pay tribute to the experiences of the actual survivors and heroes of that day."

"Arise, O Phoenix" is available at the iUniverse Bookstore and though other leading e-book retailers. All e-books published by ASI's imprints are formatted and optimized for presentation on all major e-readers including iPad, Nook, Kindle, Kobo, Sony E-Reader and smartphones.
