James Frey’s publishing house Full Fathom Five, which has already made it to New York Times bestseller lists with I Am Number Four (also a major motion picture) and Dorothy Must Die, is launching a digital imprint with plans to release a new e-book every week, for a total of 13 books this year alone, Mashable can exclusively report.

FFF Digital begins life with Amanda Black’s The Apartment, the first of many genre e-books that the new imprint believes wouldn’t fit into a traditional publishing model but would resonate with digital-savvy modern readers. It’s also hosting a two-month-long contest to find new authors; the prize is a publishing deal and $10,000 in cash.

“We are looking forward to discovering unconventional projects that have the potential to connect with a wider community of readers that haven’t been available to them before,” Frey tells Mashable.

The venture is also seeking film and TV opportunities for its authors, and has tapped Samantha Streger, who was worked with Frey’s company since April, as director of digital publishing.

New books from FFF Digital will come every Wednesday to all leading e-book retailers, beginning with Black’s The Apartment, the first in an adult romance series, on Oct. 1.

“The FFF Digital team has helped me fully realize and achieve my dream of becoming a published author,” Black said. “They have provided me with so much support along the way.”

Aspiring authors can submit work for the contest between Oct. 1 and Nov. 30. Four additional finalists will also receive a FFF Digital deal, and all submissions will be eligible for publication.
