With the current heavy emphasis on e-books, the Digital Book World conference occurring this week in New York is highly relevant. Two of the featured speakers are Russ Grandinetti, head of Kindle content for Amazon, and Abe Murray, project manager for Google eBooks. The program includes sessions on:
- Research, Data, and Perspective,
- E-books and Beyond,
- Sales and Marketing in the Digital Age,
- Evolution of Children’s Publishing, and
- New Business Models that Work.
You can also sign up for a conference newsletter (I did) that will keep you up to date on the conference and future similar events from the same organizers. Even if you hadn’t planned to attend, a last minute decision to do so seems like a good idea if you’re at all interested in e-books.
