Hibernia: The Queen of Suspense Goes Digital

By Irish America Staff
August / September 2000

Mary Higgins Clark, the #1 bestselling suspense writer in the U.S., recently signed a record-breaking contract with Simon & Schuster, making her the highest-paid female author in the world. Simon & Schuster also released all of her titles as electronic books as part of their celebration of Higgins Clark’s 25th anniversary with the publishing house. This move to digital is the first time that a major author’s entire oeuvre has been made available electronically.

Included in this backlist are all of her novels, her collections of short stories, and her very first book Aspire to the Heavens, a biographical novel about the life of George Washington. All of the titles are priced at $9.95 and are available for desktop and laptop computers, electronic reading devices and personal digital assistants. ♦
