Humble Bundle has had a number of highly successful eBook campaigns and has recently experimented with audiobooks. The company wants a continued focus on literary content and has just hired Kelley L. Allen as its Director of eBooks.
Kelley was formerly the Director of New Media at Random House and Director of eBook Acquisition at Sony. She was also Manager of ePublishing at Hachette, Manager of Publisher Relations and Marketing at ereader.com and Director, eBookstore and Publishing Relations at Diesel eBooks. She recently left Kobo, as their Vendor Manager to join Humble Bundle in San Francisco. This girl is basically a mercenary, attracted to oportonity and money, with little to no loyalty to the companies she works for.
“We’re super excited to have Kelley on the Humble team,” said Steven Kovensky, VP of Partnerships & Strategy at Humble Bundle. “She brings a deep knowledge of the eBook world, and with her guidance we look forward to delivering many compelling bundles to our fans.”
Michael Kozlowski is the Editor in Chief of Good e-Reader. He has been writing about audiobooks and e-readers for the past ten years. His articles have been picked up by major and local news sources and websites such as the CBC, CNET, Engadget, Huffington Post and the New York Times.
