Book Business April Issue Out Now
This morning the chock-full April issue of Book Business April hit subscribers' inboxes. In case you missed it, you can check out the digital edition here. If you are not a subscriber, you can sign up here for your free digital (or print) subscription.
The April issue is all about innovation. In our cover story, "The Innovators," we've spoken with publishers who are developing creative solutions for an increasingly complex and splintered industry. These innovators are crossing disciplines because the lines that define the work of a book publisher are blurring and the industry needs people that can operate across them. HarperCollins chief digital officer, Chantal Restivo-Alessi is a prime example of this and shares how her experience in the music industry has informed her strategy in the book business. Likewise Luke Parker Bowles, EVP of production at Open Road Media, has used his knowledge of the film industry to develop author-driven videos that build interest around books, attract new readers, and increase product discoverability.
