Y Books Promote Digital First With The Healing Code

Independent publisher, Y Books is to launch an ebook only edition of Dermot O’Connor’s The Healing Code in January 2012.

It will be the first time the bestselling book will be available as an eBook. The book was originally published by Hachette.

In the book O’Connor, who was diagnosed with a severe form of multiple sclerosis, explores how he resolved to heal himself and how eight years after diagnosis, Dermot is in the best physical and mental health of his life.

The digital move comes on the back of Y Books being the first domestic publisher to have its titles listed on the new Irish iBookstore after Apple launched the service at the end of September. These included Mick McCaffery’s The Irish Scissor Sisters and Cocaine Wars.

Speaking at the time Chenile Keogh, Managing Director/Publisher at Y Books, said, ‘This is a very exciting move for Y Books. As a young and innovative publisher we wanted to take advantage of the opportunities that advances in technology offer us. We are proud to be the first Irish publisher to have our full list available through iBooks Ireland just days after its launch, our titles are also available through the iBooks international stores.’
