July 24, 2012, Newburyport, MA – Firebrand Technologies, a leading book industry technology services company, and Evangelical Christian Publishers Association (ECPA) have announced the addition of Firebrand’s Ebook Content Services to their highly-successful partnership. Since 2007 ECPA member publishers have enjoyed Firebrand’s Eloquence Metadata, and more recently NetGalley digital galley services, at discounted rates. Today, Firebrand’s integrated, cloud-based ebook Content Services are now offered to ECPA member publishers for storage, management and distribution of Ebook digital assets, plus direct-to-consumer Ebook fulfillment services.


“In this dynamic marketplace, it is critical that ECPA help our member publishers succeed by forging partnerships with industry-leading solution providers,” said Mark Kuyper, President of ECPA. “Our ECPA Title Management Web program, a cloud-based partnership with Firebrand established in 2007, has enabled our publishers to efficiently manage and distribute metadata through Firebrand’s Eloquence Metadata service. Today we extend this model program to include management of Ebook content with Firebrand’s integrated Content Services at discounted rates.”


Doug Lessing, President of Firebrand, added, “It has been a privilege serving the ECPA community.
