Every month I am reminded over and over of my deadline for my "from the desk of" column. There is so much to say; however I try and convey the most important items that come up during the month to share. This month has really hit hard in the area of unknowing authors being taken advantage of by our competition.

First Edition Design Publishing Signs Best-Selling Author David J. Darling Ph.D.


Author's favorite books to be available in digital format


     World renowned best-selling British astronomer and science author David J. Darling, Ph.D, has signed with First Edition Design Publishing. Darling was previously published by Hyperion, Delacorte, Harper Collins, Random House and Wiley.


     Darling is the author of more than 40 titles including narrative science titles:  Megacatastrophes!, We Are Not Alone, Gravity's Arc, Equations of Eternity, a New York Times Notable Book, and Deep Time. He is also the author of the bestseller-The Universal Book of Mathematics: From Abracadabra to Zeno's Paradoxes. Darling's other titles include The Universal Book of Astronomy, and The Complete Book of Spaceflight, as well as more than 30 children's books. His articles and reviews have appeared in Astronomy, Omni, Penthouse, New Scientist, the New York Times, and the Guardian, among others.


     Darling's revised works, with new cover art created by First Edition Design Publishing, will now be published in eBook format by First Edition Design Publishing and distributed world-wide.


     "I'm delighted that some of my favorite books, including Soul Search, Zen Physics, and Equations and Eternity, are to be made available in digital form," Darling said. "These titles, which explore everything from the origin of the universe to the nature of life, death, and mind, will now be able to reach a new, wider audience."


     Darling served as manager of applications software for the supercomputer company Cray Research in Minneapolis, US for several years, and it was during this time that his two children were born. While at Cray he wrote in his spare time for Astronomy magazine. In 1982 he decided to take the plunge into full-time freelance writing, which has been his occupation ever since, interspersed with lectures, school talks, and travel. He and his family moved back to England (Cumbria) around the time of his career change, spent the next 16 years there, returned to the US in 1999, and re-emigrated again to the UK in 2004.  He now lives in Dundee, Scotland.

Every month I am reminded over and over of my deadline for my "from the desk of" column. There is so much to say; however I try and convey the most important items that come up during the month to share. This month has really hit hard in the area of unknowing authors being taken advantage of by our competition. I am saddened when an author comes to us after spending upwards of $10,000.00 to publish an eBook with only substandard results to boot.  I am not sure how to solve this problem, other than to ask each and every one of you to help spread the word that they need to come to First Edition Design Publishing. First Edition Design Publishing has always taken the high road in the publishing industry and is leading by example.  We were founded on a very strong set of principles that dates back to the mid 80's and we will never lose focus.


As I am writing this, yet another phone call just came in from a client who experienced a horrific ordeal with our competition.  Again, I am not sure what to say, other than I wish they would have come to us first. I appreciate the business, although I find it very disturbing that these individuals have to endure such heartache. With that said - please help us get the word out. We are here to help and get it right the first time. We do make dreams come true.


A quick update on the Mobius Book Store


We have been working hard to bring you an additional source to sell your titles--our own in house book store...the Mobius Bookstore. 


We should be launching the beta within the next 30 days with 100 titles to start. We plan on running the beta site for 60 days. After that time we will be adding an additional 100 titles per month until our entire inventory is listed. Some features that may be of interest - we are offering PDF, EPUB and Paperback formats within the store. We will not be offering hardcover. We will also be offering discounts on orders of 10 or more of the same title. This will meet the needs of those titles that are of interest to schools, churches, etc. that want to buy a title in bulk.


Have a great day!
