Skyhorse Publishing is teaming with Paperless Publishing, an e-book publisher and conversion house, to acquire and develop short form e-books to be released simultaneously in paperback. The new program is launching this month.

The two companies will work together to acquire new titles. Skyhorse will handle print production and distribution, while Paperless Publishing will take care of e-book distribution.

The new publishing program was organized by Tony Lyons, president and publisher of Skyhorse, and Paperless Publishing president Jarred Weisfeld. Agents can send submissions to Meghan Kilduff, publisher of Paperless Publishing, at
