Red Giant Expands Both E-Book Line and Charitable Pledge
ORLANDO, Fla., June 26, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Red Giant Entertainment Inc. (OTC:REDG), an innovative Intellectual Property company specializing in intellectual property development in a variety of media and entertainment, is pleased to announce that due to the increasing popularity of digital downloads in association with Mark “Markiplier” Fischbach, Red Giant has now expanded its downloadable comic book offerings as part of its charity pledge.
Red Giant Entertainment’s online store has long been the resource for purchasing physical copies of their books; however, recent developments have greatly expanded the interest in digital copies of their work. With the recent addition of Giant-Size #1, featuring YouTube and internet superstar, Markiplier, a rapid increase in digital sales has occurred. This is due in no small part to a charity pledge Red Giant made to donate 5% of the gross receivables from the digital sales of Markiplier’s book for Markiplier to donate to the charity of his choice.
“Before the early release one week ago of GIANT-SIZE #1 as a $1.99 ebook, digital downloads of our books were primarily as an add-on to campaigns with physical book orders,” explained Benny Powell, CEO of Red Giant Entertainment. “Since working with Markiplier, we’ve now made thousands in revenue. It made great sense for us to quickly expand our offerings by adding more new titles to the store, giving the flood of new customers a wider selection of material in addition to our main attractions. More importantly, we wanted to increase our charitable pledge by expanding the donation to encompass all of our digital products.”
Red Giant Entertainment will pledge 5% of gross receivables on all digital sales that occur in our store from when they began, June 19, 2015 through until the end of San Diego Comic-Con, July 12, 2015 for every title in our digital library.
