Firebrand has been an active partner in the book publishing business for over 25 years. Our software and services bring together publishers, content and readers! On January 1, 2014, we were excited to welcome Dial-a-Book, the largest aggregator and distributor of in print book excerpts for nearly 20 years, into our family of publishing services.
Dial-a-Book, now Preview-a-Book, was started in 1993 by Stanley and Betty Greenfield. The Greenfields spent many years speaking with publishers about the value of excerpts. In many ways, their work was well ahead of its time.
Now with a fresh emphasis on online content, we license a database of more than 400,000 excerpts of current books for worldwide distribution. Booksellers, distributors, libraries, and bibliographic information sources worldwide use Preview-a-Book's excerpts in their online catalogs. Browse our excerpts on Barnes & Noble, Baker & Taylor TitleSource and Content Café 2, EBSCO/host, ArcaMax, Cokesbury, NetGalley and tens of thousands of libraries subscribing to OCLC FirstSearch/WorldCat.
Enterprise Software tracks titles from pre-acquisition through post-production.
