Harold Robbins Revival Kicks Off With 18 eBook Novels

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 06/03/14 -- Harold Robbins wrote over 25 best-selling novels which spent more than 300 weeks combined on The New York Times best-seller list and sold in excess of 750 million copies worldwide in 42 languages. RosettaBooks, the leading independent eBook publisher, has published 18 of Robbins' popular titles in digital format, with 79 Park Avenue available for a free download today through Thursday in the Kindle store.

Known as the 5th bestselling fiction author of all time worldwide, Robbins penned sizzling stories which were adapted into 13 commercially successful films and television series that garnered numerous Oscar®, Golden Globe® and Primetime Emmy® nominations starring global legends such as Steve McQueen, Elvis Presley, Laurence Olivier, Bette Davis, Robert Duvall, Tommy Lee Jones and more.

The self-proclaimed "world's best writer in plain English," Robbins was the first post-war writer to push the boundaries of sexual scenes and social taboos in fiction, becoming a pioneer of 1st Amendment advocacy.

"Harold is well known as an author who wrote for the people, entertaining the masses," says Harold's widow, Jann Robbins. "My business partner, Bradley Yonover, and I are thrilled to see his most famed works reach an entirely new generation of readers and to be brought into the digital world of eBooks."

Robbins indulges readers' fascination with the seven deadly sins, the seedy side of life and provocative stories of "rags-to-riches." Titles like Never Love A Stranger and Dreams Die First have sold an estimated 60 million copies combined to date, and other newly featured titles in digital format include Never Leave Me, Stiletto and The Looters.

The 18 eBook titles in this collection include:

  • The Betsy
  • 79 Park Avenue
  • Descent from Xanadu
  • Goodbye, Janette
  • Memories of Another Day
  • Never Love a Stranger
  • Spellbinder
  • The Adventurers
  • The Dream Merchants
  • Never Leave Me
  • The Inheritors
  • The Lonely Lady
  • Dreams Die First
  • The Pirate
  • Stiletto
  • The Raiders
  • Where Love Has Gone
  • The Looters

The author of The Carpetbaggers and Where Love Has Gone drew some of his sensational stories from his own experiences, current headlines and his extravagant jet-set lifestyle.

Harold Robbins became a popular reference in culture and entertainment, from an adolescent milestone for Ponyboy in The Outsiders, to the dark side of Mad Men, and even banter between Kirk and Spock on Star Trek. He was one of the first novelists to be prominently featured in gossip magazines, earning him the title of "The World's First Rock Star Author."

Harold Robbins' groundbreaking style inspired writers like Sidney Sheldon (who Robbins helped write his first novel), Mario Puzo, Irving Wallace, Danielle Steel, Jackie Collins, Arthur Hailey, Judith Krantz and, most recently, E.L. James.
