Publishers Launch: eBooks for Everyone Else
After a number of “global” shows for international audiences, eBooks for Everyone Else is a show for all of those people in the US looking to jump-start their ebook plans. Specifically aimed at literary agents, small- and mid-size publishers, as well as individual authors, this event focuses on the main pieces of making, distributing and marketing ebooks effectively. At each step of the way we’ll help attendees understand the pluses and minus of “do it yourself,” and what focused vendors can do for you.
A “speed dating” session allows attendees to engage in small-session meetings with vendors including PubIt, Bowker, Constellation, INScribe Digital, Ingram, Vook, and the Copyright Clearance Center–and experts will lead parallel discussion/q&a sessions on marketing, understanding the overall business requirements and costs of professionally publishing books, and choosing and managing outside service providers at the same time. Visit here for program details and check this page for some of the wonderful praise from the New York version of this show that we held in New York (“Extremely well thought through and organized, Publishers Launch NY: eBooks for Everyone Else was one of the most useful and high value for my money conferences I have attended.”)
The San Francisco version of the conference includes the addition of bestselling author Bob Mayer on using his extensive backlist to build a successful epublishing line, and new panel of agents on how they are approaching epublishing opporunities for their clients, and the addition of Vook to our speed-dating sponsor team.
