New Publishing Company Trades Convention for Fresh Perspective

Winnipeg, Canada, December 12, 2012 – Big Fizz, an independent publisher of printed books and digital media, is today “officially open for business,” says CEO and co-founder Howard Gurevich.

Describing Big Fizz as “the world’s newest, and least conventional publishing company,” Gurevich says that from day one Big Fizz was not focusing solely on books but rather on the proliferation of ideas. “We want to connect with people through both traditional and non-traditional media, pretty much like any publishers today,” Gurevich explains. “But from the outset this was seen as the beginning of the process, not the end. We want to extend the reader’s experience beyond the books themselves.”

With this in mind, the company has developed a full schedule of initiatives, using social media channels and a variety of live and virtual events to spark ongoing dialogue with, and between, its readers, authors and other thought leaders.

Big Fizz will launch its first title in December and its second will be released in March, 2013. Both are authored by Big Fizz co-founder Colin Gillespie, a physicist turned lawyer turned writer. And both draw on Gillespie’s decades-long fascination with the most fundamental of questions: Who are we? How did we get here? Where are we going?
