#1 New York Times Best-Selling Author Dr. Ben Carson Releases New eBook With BookShout!

ONE VOTE + BookShout's Innovative Technology a Publishing Game Changer

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - September 23, 2014) - Dr. Ben Carson, renowned neurosurgeon and New York Times bestselling author, today announced the release of his groundbreaking new ebook: One Vote: Make Your Voice HeardThe ebook is available exclusively through BookShout!, the market-leading ebook platform known for creating new sales channels and unique author services.

Dr. Carson, a popular columnist and political commentator, wrote One Vote to explain how our amazing nation of innovators, thinkers and creators has become hamstrung by politics and inaction. One Vote lays out a simple, comprehensive way for readers to become more engaged in the fight for America's future, regardless of their political affiliation. With just weeks until the fall mid-term elections, One Vote is intended to jumpstart a campaign to end voter apathy and get voters ready to cast what could be their most important vote ever.

Dr. Carson chose BookShout! to be the exclusive ebook channel for One Vote because of its innovative services such as text-to-buy, social campaigns, audience building, gifting, bulk buying and more. "I want to motivate as many American voters as possible, as quickly as possible," noted Dr. Carson. "I believe that BookShout's technology and ebook platform can help me accomplish that and help us all be a part of saving America's future."

Dr. Carson's One Vote is a companion to his current #1 New York Times Bestseller, One Nation: What We Can All Do to Save America's Future, published by the Sentinel imprint of Penguin Random House. Together, these books pack a one-two punch that will engage voters across the political spectrum.

"We are excited to support Dr. Carson and his continued efforts to make a difference in the lives of American people," said Will Weisser, VP and Associate Publisher of the Sentinel imprint of Penguin Random House. "While One Nation continues to draw new readers in all print and electronic formats, it made more sense for him to publish One Vote in an ebook-first format, to get it out as quickly as possible before Election Day."

The new ebook is available for purchase in BookShout!'s store as is Dr. Carson's bestselling One Nation: What We Can All Do to Save America's Future. Readers can seamlessly access One Vote and One Nation across multiple platforms including smartphones, tablets, and through any web browser. Digital copies will be made available to media outlets and organizations through redemption pages and special offers. A paperback version of One Vote will be published by Tyndale House through book retailers nationwide in late October.

"We are honored to serve Dr. Carson and his partners in this campaign," stated Jason Illian, CEO and founder of BookShout! "With the ebook landscape changing rapidly, we believe more authors and publishers will follow Dr. Carson's lead and leverage our digital tools and new sales channels."
