This is a great time to be an author, either independent or traditionally published. There are so many more outlets and options for distribution, marketing, discovery, and sales than even just five years ago. No matter where you are in the world, no matter your genre, you can develop some sort of author platform pretty quickly these days!
And it’s an interesting time to be a publisher, too, because the definition of publishing is changing all the time. Learning to be more agile seems to be the theme of this week, with topics/panels like these:
-- Digital Technology & The Internet Are Reshaping the Book Business
-- The Future of Book Publishing: Technology Trends
-- Reinventing the Writing Process
-- How Social Media is Transforming Reading
-- The Evolving Challenges and Opportunities in Global Publishing
-- The Evolving Challenges and Opportunities in Global Retail
-- Reading and Writing Innovation to Engage
… and that’s just part of tomorrow’s BEA program!
Bowker, an affiliate of ProQuest, will have a large presence on the show floor, in the Digital Zone. We hope you will attend some of our presentations, stop by the booth to pull up some literature on our new e-doc station, or sit down with one of our reps to chat about what’s new. We’ll also be Tweeting just about constantly, so keep an eye on us via our handle, @Bowker.
