eBooks: Opportunity or Threat?
Digital Book World answers the question, offers solutions
“Ebook publishing is fiendishly complicated,” noted Richard Curtis, participating on the eBooks, Kindles and the Digitization of the Industry panel at the Writer’s Digest Conference held in New York City last month. “To deliver an eBook can be very complex and very costly.”
Curtis offers a well-rounded perspective on the questions of how and where eBooks fit in the consumer publishing eco-system. His presence on the Advisory Board for January’s Digital Book World Conference ensures that these questions will not only be answered, but practical solutions will be offered. Curtis is uniquely qualified to speak on eBooks as the president of Richard Curtis Associates, Inc., a leading New York literary agent; founder of E-Reads, an electronic book publisher; and a published author and well-known author advocate.
eBooks: Opportunity or Threat? is the underlying theme of the series of sessions focusing on the “fiendishly complicated” and increasingly popular format, covering everything from pricing and timing of release, to optimizing the experience of reading on screen. Among the confirmed speakers for the event are Peter Balis, Director of Digital Content Sales for Wiley; Vook Founder and CEO Brad Inman; and writer Kassia Kroszer of BookSquare.
Registration is now open for Digital Book World, an innovative new publishing conference that addresses the necessary changes in business processes, marketing strategies and technological resources that are being driven by changes in consumers’ reading and buying habits.
The conference program has been developed by Conference Chair Mike Shatzkin of The Idea Logical Company, in consultation with the editorial leadership at Writer’s Digest including F+W Media President Sara Domville, Publisher/Editorial Director Jane Friedman and Director of Audience Development Guy LeCharles Gonzalez, along with an illustrious Conference Advisory Board of well-recognized thought leaders from across the book supply chain. Digital Book World will offer practical plans for realizing revenues tomorrow, and beyond, for executive management, acquisition editors, sales professionals, marketing managers, and agents.
The conference will take place January 26-27, 2010 at the Sheraton New York Hotel & Towers in New York City.
