Distribution in the Digital Age
Jacqueline Simonds, CEO of Reno, Nev.-based based publisher and distributor Beagle Bay Books, says that she has only just begun to explore electronic options, as she considers releasing chapter-by-chapter e-documents once she has chosen a solution for managing her content across platforms.
“I think that as e-reader [devices] evolve, that becomes more interesting, but I think it’s going to be e-content rather than full books,” she says. “It’s not a problem really. You just have to think of your book as a content package that you can pull … content from, something you can re-monetize and repackage in a lot of ways.”
