Logos Bible Software unveils digital publisher Kirkdale Press
Up-and-coming publisher launches, offering feature-rich Christian ebooks through Vyrso, Kindle, Nook, other ereader apps
BELLINGHAM, Wash., April 26, 2012 — At a time when many traditional publishers are restructuring and reinventing themselves to stay afloat in the digital world, Logos Bible Software unveils Kirkdale Press, with innovative features that are setting the industry standard. Kirkdale Press was designed to publish ebooks from the beginning, demonstrating the agility and innovative features that print publishers now strive to embody. Available through Vyrso, the ereader app from Logos, as well as through Kindle, Nook and other ereaders, Kirkdale offer users the ability to click on Bible references and read the passages within their favorite ebooks.
“If you're reading a print book and see a Bible reference like Psalm 20:1-9, how likely are you to get out your Bible, find the passage and read it? Not likely,” said Ryan Rotz, manager of Kirkdale Press. “It's a shame because you lose so much of what the author is conveying. With our ebooks, we've solved this problem.”
While digital books may be a fairly new concept to most publishers, it has been the expertise of Logos for more than two decades. Logos 4, its flagship product, can search through libraries of 22,000 ebooks, including Kirkdale’s, in seconds. Founded upon this long legacy of cutting-edge digital tools, Kirkdale Press is at the forefront in creating and providing exciting features in its fiction and non-fiction ebooks.
“When consumers hear 'digital,' they want something innovative,” said Rotz, “and that's precisely what they get every time they tap into a Kirkdale book.”
Kirkdale Press is a new digital publishing imprint from Logos Bible Software. Publishing new voices in Christian living and fiction, Kirkdale Press builds on Logos' 20 years of leadership in electronic Christian resources. Kirkdale ebooks are available through Vyrso, the Christian ereader app from Logos, as well as the Kindle, Nook, Kobo and other ereaders.
Logos is the leading provider of multilingual tools and resources for Bible study on Macs, PCs and mobile devices. Logos has served pastors, scholars and everyone who wants to study the Bible since 1992, partnering with 150 publishers to offer more than 22,000 Christian ebooks to users in 210 countries.
