Any exclusive ebook publishers?

Are there any publishers that exclusively focus on ebooks, that are successful at it?

That depends on how you define success. I'm sure some are making a little money, but I don't think it's a sustainable business model. Why would authors continue to give so much of the royalty to a publisher when e-publishing independently is so easy?

I don't know about e-only, but there are plenty of e-first pubs out there doing well (they usually do print, a lot of the time some form of POD, 6 to 18 months after the e release)

Harlequin has an e-only imprint, Carina Press.

It appears they are using it to test the waters before moving a new author to their print imprints.

Well Smashwords is kind of a publisher crossed with an ebookstore... kind of stripped down the publishing aspects to the bare minimum (i.e. distribution).

I suspect that as ebooks become more popular with those of us who read regularly for fun (as opposed to the people who buy or read 3 or 4 books a year), that books that would have originally been released to the mass market first will be simply published as ebooks and only printed if they really build a following in the ebook world (and with Print on Demand Publishing, this should be a fairly easy step).

Maybe this is what you're looking for?

Of those listed, I've only heard of Double-Dragon ebooks and Mundania Press.
