About Fictionwise.com


Fictionwise.com is committed to providing the Internet's most comprehensive collection of fiction (and yes nonfiction too!) in the most popular eBook formats.

At Fictionwise, you'll find award-winning and high quality eBooks by top authors in all the major genres. We are also working hard to make Fictionwise.com the most technically advanced eBook website (ranging from sophisticated search or sorting options to a complete coupon and promotions system to artificial intelligence systems to help members buy eBooks they will enjoy).

Fictionwise launched on June 5th, 2000 as a partnership between Steve Pendergrast and Mindwise Media, LLC, which is owned by Scott Pendergrast. The success of Fictionwise led to it being spun out of Mindwise into its own company, now called Fictionwise, Inc.

Fictionwise.com also manages several other eBook websites, such as eBookwise.com, which supports eBooks for the eBookwise-1150 reading device and Libwise.com, which is our eBooks for Libraries solution.

Fictionwise is open to potential partnerships and strategic relationships. We believe that the potential for eBooks is enormous and the best way to expand the market is to work together. Contact Scott Pendergrast with your ideas.
