Tantor Media began publishing e-books in 2011 with the classic GAMES PEOPLE PLAY by Eric Berne. It followed up this success with several titles by best-selling author Erich von Daniken and the now modern classic WARRIORS DON’T CRY by Melba Pattillo Beals. Since these early successes, Tantor has gone on to publish 3 dozen e-books and continues to seek out backlist e-book rights to add to its growing e-book catalog.
In the fall of 2012, Tantor launched its print division with the successful publication of SINATRA AND ME by Tony Consiglio as told to Franz Douskey. Tantor also hit the New York Times bestseller list with the publication of a revised edition of BEHIND THE CANDELABRA by Scott Thorson, the basis of the award-winning HBO movie.
Tantor has brought its 15 years of audio publishing experience to print and e-book publishing. For every print title it acquires, Tantor publishes the audio and e-book editions. Tantor has full, nationwide distribution through chain and independent bookstores and online retailers. Tantor has a top editorial team dedicated to help an author realize their vision for their title.
Tantor’s marketing and PR team has successfully garnered national print attention as well as helping to get author appearances on national radio and television shows. SINATRA AND ME author Franz Douskey appeared on the national Imus in the Morning radio show and was featured in newspapers across the U.S. and in the United Kingdom. Scott Thorson made countless television and radio appearances, including the Today Show, Inside Edition, and The Howard Stern Show.
