Google Play Books Partner Center open for new publishers

While reading J.A. Konrath's latest blog post, I noticed he created a new Google Play Books Partner Center account.  After acquiring Oyster's expertise and nearly 9 months with closed gates, it looks like they're open for business again.

Kudos to Google and Oyster for re-opening an important eBook retail platform to new publishers!

Update - Mar. 11, 2016:  It seems Google closed Google Play Books Partner Center for new accounts again.  They were open to new accounts for at least a week, but I have no idea which date they closed again.
