Spotlight Title: I'm Not Her

“Janet Gurtler’s fine portrayal of a family in crisis from the point of view of high-school freshman Tess Smith is completely honest and realistic. The writing is crisp and the dialogue is authentic. The relationships are heartbreakingly truthful. This is a must read for teens and those of us who want to understand them.” – Sacramento Book Review

TEDxNaperville Visits Sourcebooks—talking about book publishing and the future

Friday, our friends at TedXNaperville hosted an Adventure at Sourcebooks. The theme of this year’s TedXNaperville was The Tipping Point. We are obviously part of an industry undergoing transformation and so were excited to be part of this event.

Our Editorial team talked about the publishing process: who does what at a publishing house, how retail works, how marketing and publicity work. Lots of specific information and loads of questions!! 

I talked about the different kinds of impact that digital has had on book publishing. Here's some of what we talked about:

1. The ebook transformation
* who is the ebook customer?
* are print books dead or dying?
2. How book retailing is changing
3. Different authors’ career paths
4. Authors and publishers creating new revenue streams together
You can see my presentation entitled: The Book in Transformation: A Publisher Vision for the Future on Slideshare: TEDxNaperville Visits Sourcebooks from Dominique Raccah
