Website | @zolabooks

Joe Regal has spent more than two decades in publishing, starting at the Russell & Volkening Literary Agency, where he worked with Pulitzer Prize-winning authors Anne Tyler, Eudora Welty, and Annie Dillard, as well as Nobel Prize-winner Nadine Gordimer. He founded his own agency, Regal Literary, in 2002; there he represented books as diverse as Big Fish, The Time Traveler’s Wife, Shantaram, The Master and Margarita, Scott Pilgrim,The Tao of Wu, and The Traveler. He co-founded Zola Books in 2011 as the first truly integrated social eBook retailer, creating an alternative ecosystem that empowers writers, publishers, independent booksellers, and curators. Zola is an open-platform retailer that carries books from large and small publishers and makes them available on all web-enabled devices, including the Nook, iPad, Kobo, and yes, most Kindles.
